THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE.
---> not sure if this is the best way to reply to you all but;
lOl sorry about the caps lock issue. i will be getting everything from amazon. and the reason why i chose that mobo was so that i wont limit my performance and or so that i wont restrict myself of any future upgrades. BUt i am a newbie at all this. ive spent about 4 days trying to come up with something that will work. to be honest with you all i still have yet to find out if all this even fit together in this case. but i do got the good feeling that it will. ty
You really should cut down on you mobo and invest ina sound card if ur really going to do a lot with music.
i have an audio interface / usb ALSO the reason why i chose that mobo was so that i wont limit my performance and or so that i wont restrict myself of any future upgrades. BUt i am a newbie at all this.
It won't limit performance. It is equal. That MoBo is made rather for more expensive processors such as the 3930K.
how much a difference would it make if i considered the 3930k over the 3570k for music and some video production? and would i still be able to use any of those two psu listed above if i chose the 3930k?
NEVERmind i got the 3770k confused with this way more expensive 3930k. is the 3770k and 3930k compatibe with the cheaper mobo you suggested? and what about compatibility with the psu's above?
