Yo /g/, building my first PC for a home music studio and have a question... what's the most important stat to invest in for audio creation... CPU power? RAM?

Get more cores, you can always download more ram and overclock
>>
>>52469201
what's your daw? and I would say processor, like >>52469241 said, you can always buy more ram

i get away with a haswell i54200u and 8gb ram, but im only using adobe audition and a few vsts
>>
>>52469428
reaper / cubase 8, not sure which one i'm going to throw myself at yet
>>
you need @least a 5Ghz processor any less is too crowded so maybe the 9590 FX otherwise you will get interference and try get as high mhz ram as possible like 4000 mhz
>>
the best CPU
RAM depends on how many samples ou use duh
get a SDD for OS and samples

>>52469500
how's this bros?
>>
>>52469686
*have a case + power supply already
>>
>>52469686
You can go with a cheapr GPU, unless you use 3+ monitors on high resolutions.
>>
>>52469686
I would get a non k i7
>>
>>52469686
fuck off with the k cpu variant, you aint overclocking shit, and you're sacrificing virtualization potential
>>
>>52469745
>>52469760
reddit is saying this is the shit for music producing though, some guy says he can run 100 VSTis playing midi overcloked
>>
>>52469241
Why is and trying to steal Nvidia's bike?
>>
>>52469241
>AMD

what's the joke?
>>
>>52469720

What if he's playing to use video with it?

I've got a friend who tells me video hogs up everything when you try and mix music in.
>>
>>52470124
that's not gpu's fault, though.
video engines in DAWs are shit
If you really need to work with video get a lot more SSD space because fuckhueg intermediate codec files (prores, dnxhd) are what's used there because of the slim processor load
>>
>>52469854
for the love of fuck the go back to reddit and enjoy your suboptimal hardware.

-get the most expensive non k i7 you can
-as much fast ram as you can
-as much fast m.2 ssds as you can
-hdd doesnt matter
-gpu doesnt matter, literally the cheapest shit will do, just make sure it can handle your resolution and monitor count

>>52469760
Yeah, right...
I'd rather not get a K processor for music work for stability reasons.
>>
>>52471473
shit, that used to be true when I was picking a cpu...
>>
>>52470074
driver-less
>>
>>52469201
Single thread performance is the most important for audio software. Don't go AMD because there is still lots of software out there that was made with ICC, which sucks but there's nothing you can do about it. If you actually are using the software correctly though, you could produce miracles on a fucking pentium. That said, either a current or last gen i7 will be more than enough.
>>
>>52471123
>>52469745
sorry I'm really stupid so bare with me-- why get a non k? I think I can follow a guide on youtube to over-clock it with a nice fan...
>>
>>52469201
Serious answer: CPU if you are running things like VSTs. RAM is if you're working with samples a lot.
>>
>>52475864
You don't wan't fan noise when making music. I'd even recommend a fanless psu.
