Default DAW BUILD 2013

Guys im ordering my DAW this days and i dont know what cpu+mobo to choose.I have find a retailer for very good prices.I have post once again in past but i couldnt buy the computer then i dont had enough money,but now i have.
This is the build:

case: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl
psu: Seasonic G-550 for lga 1155 and G-650 for lga 2011 build.

cpu+mobo: 3770K+GA-Z77X-D3H or 3820+GA-X79-D3H?

cpu_cooler: Corsair H60 2013 Edition (or somethinge else like Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 for lga 2011?)

ram: Corsair Vengance 2 kits of (2x4) total 16GB (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 X79 compatible)

gpu: Asus GeForce GT630 2GB

ssd: Samsung 840 250GB

HDD: 2x Wd Caviar Black 1TB or 2x Baraccuda 1TB (-30eurw in total price)

This build will cost to me 990eurw with lga 1155 and 1040eurw with lga 2011. 50eurw difference.

I will add better gpu for little gaming in the end of summer.
Im not considering upgrade in next 4-5 years.
I have read many topics and see grapths that 3820 have better benchmarks in daw but will i see differences?
I work with about 40-50 channels max.
7-8 channels with vsti like omnisphere,nexus,komplete 8 vsti's + i add Reason with rewire.

some comparisons since I just did a new build recently:

case = corsair Obsidian 800D
cpu = intel i7 3930k [6 cores unlocked]
mobo = asus sabertooth X79 [5yr warrantee, 1 old pci slot, up to 64 gb ram on 8 slots]

cooler = corsair H100i [goes right into that case and keeps the cpu below human body temp!]

psu = corsair 1200 ax modular [great power supply IMO]
memory = 64 gb corsair vengance [8 by 8 gb sticks, matched]

ssd = corsair Neutron GTX 480 gb... boot drive
also a couple of 3 tb seagates...

vid card = nvida [EVGA] 650Ti ... good enough for now

Win 7 64 bit OS...

audio card = m-audio profire 2626

Much like you, not planning to do another build for some years now.

no doc... I'm just aka Max Stout.

It might seem like a big deal to you for audio but you likely don't work in Photoshop, eh?

I do and with some rather huge digital image scans. When an 8 x 10 negative is scanned at 4500 dpi the result is a large file. PS like to have 3-5 times the file size to work in and trust me, you don't want to work in PS in virtual memory.

And besides, that ram was very cheap considering that when I built my old xp pc's, we paid about the same for a mere 4 gb's of DDR2.

Hi hopi, may I ask what the total cost for that came to?

I'm seriously thinking about putting another new one together myself soon.

Do you think the ssd is worth it and are you putting all your program files on it?

Tod... don't have that figure handy... but you can easily make a spreadsheet and compare prices... but approximately 2500-3000

start with NewEgg as they have most of those things listed...

and their prices are on average OK... compare with TigerDirect...

sometimes one or the other will have better prices... by far really

now that corsair case is no longer in production.. as they will very soon have the the 900 ready to ship... wish I'd known that but then I would have had to wait... hate to wait...
Can't say enuff about that case... it's huge but makes the build very much easier than anything else I've ever used.

about the SSD... simply put yes, IMHO it is 'the' way to go.
Firstly, that particular SSD is the only one that gets stellar reviews across the board. You can find all that online.

I install a lot of stuff and need all what room so to me it's worth the cost for the speed.

Almost all programs and vst and vsti's are on it.
I have two SATA HD's as well, 3TB's @ 7200 rpm... the D drive holds a huge amount of kontakt lib's and samples... and also the larger Drum vsti's and their sounds.

Now worth mentioning that the asus mobo with it's utilities will allow a way to install the OS on a SATA HD and use the SSD [of any size] as a cache, that will boost the SATA's performance... but I opted to just use the SSD as is and prefer that for my needs.

happy to talk in more detail if you wish.

Why not one set of 2x8? If you only have 4 slots you have to throw away one set if you want to increase the ram.

Default CPU Mark Relative to Top 10 Common CPUs

Check this chart out!

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?...2620+@+2.00GHz

I then checked the price of the AMD FX-8350 Black Edition (which seems to blow away everything) and its like $199?

Here's the link at Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819113284

Can this be right? If so, wouldn't this be the one to get?

I also did a search (AMD FX-8350 black edition vs Intel Core i7-4930K )and found this review.

http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/449..._i7-4930K.html

Thoughts?
