A gaming pc for Music Production? Tags: New Build Gaming Music Software Systems Last response: July 25, 2010 5:22 PM in Systems Share abstractcats July 24, 2010 11:17:50 PM Hi guys, I thought I should post a very basic question. I'm a non gamer, I'm into music production (DAWs, software synths, sampling, etc.) and web and graphic design. I'm think that a PC built for intense gaming, other than video, would be good for music production as any one who has worked with DAWs and software synths knows they can eat resources fast. Would building in the direction of a gaming computer be a good idea?
