I'm looking at building my first computer and I've accumulated a lot of information and am having some trouble sorting it all out. I'd like to keep the build under a grand and I'm not hoping to make a top-of-the-industry machine. I will mainly be using the system for audio engineering and production and also for some moderate gaming.
I think that I can sort everything out once I have found a suitable motherboard but it gets to be a bit of black magic for me. Here is one I'm looking at now as newegg has a free 8gb RAM when you purchase it. It seems to meet all my needs, but what about quality?
