Question what is your BUDGET REAPER recording studio build?

Keeping a budget in mind; say a couple hundred dollars to a thousand or two, what basic hardware and software would your budget REAPER recording studio have? This thread is made to give people that ideas they might want to incorporate into their own build. Feel free to point out flaws or alternative replacement parts. Mine would be something like this...

PC: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 with Wraith Spire Cooler, ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero CPU/Motherboard Bundle $369.98 @ Microcenter (my favorite store) and build out the rest using used or salvaged parts. Making PC cost just over $500+.

SOUND CARD: Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre 8-Channel Mic Pre with ADAT Connectivity around $350 used from E-bay.

POWER CONDITIONER: Furman M-8X2 Merit Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner and Surge Protector Price: $51.41 & FREE Shipping Amazon (maybe pick up used cheaper one.)

MICS: Shure sm57 $50 to $100 / Se Electronics 2200 Older Large condenser cardiod (with 8db self noise) $150 to $200 used. AKG d8000m $20

MONITORS: maybe KRK RP5G3-NA Rokit 5 Generation 3 Powered Studio Monitor used $200.

HEADPHONES: Nice used pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Sound-Isolating Monitor headphones $50+ craigslist.

MIDI CONTROLLER: Old Yamaha KX61 or KORG - MODEL #848-20 personal keyboard or the like $50.

OS: MINT CINNAMON 19.1

This studio cost about $1500 usd. Whats your build?

A tech recycler's i7 system complete with a terrabyte drive
and 8 gig ram should be under $200, use the $300 difference
for a videocard upgrade, and a second video monitor, and some cool
no-brainer-sale software titles from Plugin Boutique etc
Cheers

Default well said... tech recycle

Yes more prudent to go that direction... (my whole studio cost little over $300) by using slightly older PC parts allows for more money in areas that matter more; like sound card or mics...
