Hello, fine internet travellers of tech power up! This is my first post here, so hello! I would appreciate some input on a build I have in the works. Here, I have for you, after some rigorous (yet incomplete) research a machine designed to balance acoustics with intense performance (but without being too silly). I'm a dev, musician and gamer. So I need a machine that isn't slow with large Visual Studio projects, or ProTools projects and of course the usual collection of games. Now the last machine I've built used an AMD Sempron @ 1.6GHz, and an ATi Radeon 9800 pro. So I've had to catch up a bit. Since I built that one, I've had laptops and this one's showing it age a bit. So anyway, check the attachment to see what I've come up with. It's a tad rushed and incomplete perhaps. A brief outline of my thoughts: It needs to be damn quiet. Really quiet. I can get pretty high-end stuff without too much hassle as it's not like I'm throwing away old parts to get there. Plus it might as well be good so it can last. As far as money goes, it's fairly open ended and theoretical at this moment.. but why waste money on a Titan or whatever?
