  1. I would recomment to buy a 8gb ram and a 120/128 gb ssd instead of 16gb ram, or if you can afford it 16gb of ram and a 120/128 gb ssd...

    Other people on the forum were saying that 16gb ram is needed if you want to record, is this the case or not?
  3. Obviously 16 gb will give you more room, but my opinion is that an ssd will boost up your pc perfomance much more than a 8 more gb of ram in terms of system booting and applications lauching time...

    I think that your build is fine as it is. As stated, you could cut on the RAM, and get an SSD.
    This is a preference, and you will not notice any performance gains.

    I agree with your answer, but my suggestion was reffering to a more snappy experience. After the load of a program
    a ssd does not offer anything more than a hdd


  6. Thanks for all the responses guys this has helped, I think I may get an ssd but I'm still not sure
