A few weeks back, I posted about building a new PC. I got a lot constructive criticism and good feedback. Now, after doing some research on finding the cheapest components, I present you the final list. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. My original budget was around 1000 euros but it has gone up from that a bit. Everything should be compatible.
Usage from most to least: Composing (using a lot of VST plug-ins), gaming (Guild Wars 2, SW:ToR, Skyrim with rather high settings), basic computer stuff
Parts not required: Mouse, speakers, keyboard, external sound card
With shipment and such, the final price would be slightly under 1200 e. The reason I'm ordering from German is that they sell components cheaper. Of course, if there're better sites, I'd be more than happy to order from them. The Finnish site I was gonna buy from - Jimm's PC Store - increased their prices by some 20 percent at the worst so it would become unbelievably expensive to buy from there.
All I'm missing now is a decent monitor. I would like it to be around 27" or so, so I can also use it for watching movies with friends from farther away.
Is there any point of getting more RAM for music software? Does anyone have experience with that?
Also, if I can cut corners somewhere a bit it's never a bad thing.
The reason I'm going for SSD is simply for better performance with music software and the VST plug-ins and the Blu-ray reader would become handy because we don't have a player that reads them in our household.
