12900 is the best for multi-core performance. Picked the F version as performance difference between it and the K is minimal and allows for a bit of savings with a B660 board and DDR4 memory. I added 124gb in the price but you can get 64 as you said and upgrade later. Case is an easy one to build in and allows for good airflow. it supports many storage options if you need to add them for later but you didn't mention you need local storage. GPU is just something decent. I added a 3060 as you said your video editing workload was light.

Budget (including currency): $2000 US

Country: US

I'm looking to build a music production desktop. I'll be using various DAW's like: Pro Tools, MPC Studio, Sibelius, and others. I also use a lot of virtual instrument packs and VST's. I won't be doing any gaming, but I will be doing some light video editing and Auto CAD. I'll be using a 32 inch TV as my monitor. Peripherals such as mouse, keyboard and others are not in the budget. 64gb's of ram is a must for me and I may want to upgrade to 124 if there may be a need for it in the future. If someone could come in under budget while making an awesome build, that would be great. Honestly, I'm not too worried about fan noise, vocal and band recording will be done in another room. With that being said, thanks to anyone who can help.

Should be a quiet system that you won't notice. I have no clue about sound cards, just plopped one in that seemed appropriate:

Hello everyone, it's good to know some people actually reads these things. I appreciate the help and work all of you put into this build. I'm really not a tech guy, I mostly only really know about music gear not choosing the best components for a PC. Thank you all
