I am involved music production and I currently do it on my mac. I am currently piecing out the build for a new desktop that will be used for slew of things but mostly geared for gaming. I figured if I was going to be building this comp, it may be smart to move my production over with it as my MBP is starting to get pretty slow with complex layering. Here is the proposed build and I was wondering what you guys think I should do for the sound option.
