My brother is a part-time studio musician and he wants to setup a small studio in his basement.
While he was reading through various music trade magazines, he asked me to build a powerful computer that will do extensive audio and video compilations and other stuff related to that.
I have come up with this computer build following his stated needs for this build.
Will not overclock, but wants more than 6 cores for an Intel processor. Will NOT accept AMD processors!
Must have 4 - 1 TB SSD - (based on the recommendation of one music trade magazine)(don't ask me why...)
Must have at least 32 GB of system RAM.
He does NOT want a liquid based cooling system. (he had a bad experience with one long time ago and it ruined his computer system. No, I did not build it... someone else did.)
Must be a full sized tower with minimum of 800 watt power supply unit.
Must have at least 4 GB graphic card, not for gaming purposes, but for extensive music graphical work. (you've seen those music documentaries where they show a music studio with all of those knobs and sliders... that's what the graphic card will be rendering for on top of the audio and video rendering)
My brother has already bought 2 - 32 inch monitors, already has the mouse, keyboard, speakers and a new Blu-ray optical disk drive.
I am asking the highly competent computer builders in this forum to review my computer build and see if there is anything that I forgot or need to make changes on. I think I have everything covered. Even though I have built well over 1,000 computer systems, I have never built a computer system specific for a music studio.
He will only accept either NewEgg or Amazon for this computer build.
Please, do not go over $5,000 USD!
