Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: Tomorrow

Budget Range: $700

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Music Production, Gaming, Video Rendering

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: n/a

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Which ever is cheapest

Location: East TN

Parts Preferences: Intel

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Comments: System will be mainly used for music production. I would like to use a significant number of vsts at once without system lag. Also gaming, 60+ fps would be ideal. Video rendering is what takes up the least amount of my pc time. With that being said I would like to have the videos render quickly. Many thanks!
