I'm going to be switching over from my mac book pro for mostly audio & some video editing, tracking and GAMING! I'm excited because I have time to do this. The last game I played was Half Life and a couple minutes of Half Life 2... I've played on xboxes in random places but never got into gaming as I had a mac and haven't been home. I've always carried my macbook and external everywhere as I can just plug into computers at the studio but I'd like to show off something and learn.
I want to build a silent, mobile, future proof and powerful pc. No specific budget plan as I want to build a mobile monster I will cherish until I drop it haha not really serious about that but it might happen. I have no idea what I'm looking for in a GPU but a silent and powerful one I'm assuming. I will be sticking with the Intel processor and I will use solid state drives. I'd like to go with a z68 or x79 board but have no idea which one is better for this build or purpose.
