Try and get a decent audio interface. M-Audio do some nice audio soundcards for recording into your DAW software.

That is a motherboard for an Intel system. If you are gonna go with that one it would require an Intel I7 processor.

If you are on a budget you could skimp on the motherboard a little. Those 790FX motherboards and Black edition CPU's are more geared for people who are going to be pushing their systems (overclocking) You would be fine with a 790x or 790gx board. You also really don't need a black edition Processor if your not overclocking it. But it does offer a little more speed for a small amount of extra money.

*** EDIT****
That motherboard you posted was on the NEWEGG.CA site so the price isnt that much more.

Same with this PSU

Oh and wolvarine, I checked best buy and it's still marked up to $130 D8
thats from my build the motherboard will only work if you get an i7 and you most likely wont need a PSU that is that big. the only reason that i'm taking it and the motherboard is because they'll allow me to crossfire without upgrading any parts

I do want that mobo though... it looks sexy with the 6 ram slots XD

Hmm... I'm not on too strict of a budget really. I'd like to keep it under 1000 but it doesn't look like that's going to happen XD

Solid, OCZ 1000W PSU for $60 (70% off), not sure how long supplies will last but you could overclock your system and Quad-Crossfire/SLI with this beast :P

The 1000W I have no idea why it's 70% off, but it is. It's recertified which means it might have scratches on it (OH NO!) but works perfectly. It's a $200 PSU for $60 while supplies last, I ordered 3, so I'll be making 3 big builds to sell here soon XD
