Default Video and audio set up

I'm looking to build a very upgradeable pc with windows 8 to be able to run programs like
pro tools, fl studio 11 , adobe primer suit, reason. I want to edit and be able to handle alot of footage. I want to make my own scores, do folly work, do color correcting, CGI, roto scoping,green screen, and maybe even some animation. I will have a budget of around 1.5k to 3k. I want to run all new parts and I want my pc to multi task on ruduculas stuff and run semi quiet and be able to run a 2nd moniter eventually.i refuse to go liquid cool unless you can convince me it's worth it.i also want my pc to be upgradeable. Also i refuse to over clock because your pc runs hotter.

So far I know you need a good amount of memory to multi task.you need a good graphics card to handle the graphics your creating.Storage space to store all of this. A good Processor Is good too. That helps all of this

I'm not sure what you mean by upgradable but technology changes and you can build one now that'll hold it's own for years as it is.

I'd suggest Intel i7 CPU on a business grade motherboard, 32 gigs memory and enterprise hard drive along with SSD for OS.

I'm not up to date with video cards so I'll let someone here to take care of that.

Well, 32gb DDr3 I'd say would probably be best IF you got DDr3. However I think 16gb DDr4 would be just as good. This is my build I would suggest:

Intel Core i7-5930K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.5GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W Desktop Processor BX80648I75930K - Newegg.com

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4-17000) Memory Kit Model CMK16GX4M4A2133C13 - Newegg.com

GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD3 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

CORSAIR Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler, CW-9060016-WW - Newegg.com

G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-DR - Newegg.com

NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller - Newegg.com

CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Newegg.com

WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com

EVGA 04G-P4-2976-KR GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com

That graphics card is not the "best", but since you want an upgradable system it would do the trick and you can upgrade anytime.

The grand total of this is:


You can always buy a much better GPU for $400 more :P Win 8 will be another $80.

Asus USB 3.0 Mobo - 16Gb DDr3 1866mhz Ram - AMD FX 6300 Hexa core 4.0Ghx OC - Corsair CX600M PSU - Corsair H80i Cooler - Gigabyte Gefore GT 730 2Gb GDDr5 - WD Blue 1tb 7200rpm - WD 360gb 5200rpm Backup drive.
