I intend to build my own computer for gaming and composing in the near future. I have never done this before and even though I'm really interested in this kind of stuff my knowledge in the matter is somewhat - constrained, if you will.
So. I'm asking you to help me out here. I have made a list of components that might be good and tried to make sure each component is compatible and so on.
I do have some criteria, though.
1. Good cooling is something I find important
2. Silence is also important
3. I would like to play games such as Skyrim, SWTOR and Guild Wars 2 with pretty much maxed out settings but also use the PC to run heavy music software.
4. Well, being able to upgrade is kind of a given.
My budget is 1000€ and I live in Finland so the currency is in Euros of course.
As we can see, the 1000€ is almost up and I have yet to choose a GC. Can I cut corners somewhere?
I do have an external sound card and all the other stuff for making music so no need to worry about those.
My other concerns are:
-Is there enough cooling for the CPU
-Is 600 W power supply sufficient
-Which Graphics Card to get
-Are there components that aren't compatible or some components that are too good or too bad for the overall build
And then the very last thing. The case I have chosen (it's pretty expensive but has great cooling) has two USB 3.0 ports. Are they plugged in to the "internal motherboard interface (don't know the correct term)". This particular motherboard has only two exterior USB 3.0s. Will the 2 USB 3.0s attached to the case go to waste then?
Thank you very much for you help in advance
