It's mainly going to be used for music production, gaming, and multitasking
I'm very new to building my own computer so i decided to come to a place where people could help
My budged is $1000-$1300 as a final price (except the monitor)
Could somebody point me in the right direction regarding the parts for gaming/music?

Is it heavier editing or gaming?

More for editing than gaming. So quiet parts are kind of a big deal. But i can settle for whatever my price will buy

then you are better off getting more RAM, if your going for heavy editing then i would go for 16gb and shred some money by buying cheaper stuff for like the gpu or the mobo.
