I'm debating about building another desktop computer. The last one I built was an in 2011; ASUS Crosshair IV MB. I ran a AMD Phenom Top of the Food Chain 6core processor. I cooled it with an ULTRA Chilltech black cpu cooler and maxed out the RAM with 16 G. It's a Farrari! It's even Red and Black LOL!
I want to build a NEW system using the ASUS Gaming MB Platform / AMD chipset. Although I game (I usually do it on the X-Box / Play Station); and I know that this is a ROG approved MB for intense gamers. I need the processing speed to write complex music scores using Pro Tools, Reason, Studio One, etc. I run Microphones, Monitors, electronic keyboard(s) & drums, etc. and need some "Juice" to run these products smoothly. I'm open to suggestions and have a good budget to work with. I would rather build a Futuristic system that will last me for the next 5+ years, than go cheap and have to build out again in 2 years.
I will run Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit X# Gig RAM (The maximum) and two, perhaps four monitors for multi-tasking too. Perhaps a game or two like Battlefield 4...That is IF i decide to get my gaming on and I will get a 5.1, 7.1 or 8.1 surround sound system, probabally from parts express. They have Great Stereo & electronic Equippment for less.
