Need a build for gaming and music production

Im looking to build a computer around black friday and i need it capable of playing fortnite at 60 fps or more and loading in the buildings before landing and music production.

 

I need a cpu that can handle 8 midi/audio tracks and a butt load of plug ins.

 

I dont have a set budget but i dont want to go above 500 Canadian dollars. I will most likely buy storage devices, case, power supply, and kb and mouse on black Friday and buy whatever cpu+mobo+ram i get recommended.

Welcome to the forum!

 

so 60fps can be obtainable for really cheap if you want to play with lowest settings. What kind of budget do you have?

For audio stuff like abelton you will need a fast SSD a nvme Samsung Evo pro 970 is great. And it loads the plugins very fast. I would recommend a ryzen build with that ssd and whatever gfx card you can afford.

CPU:R9 3900x@4.5Ghz RAM:Vengeance Pro LPX @ 3200mhz MOBO:MSI Tomohawk B350 GPU:PNY GTX 1080 XLR8

DRIVES:500GB Samsung 970 Pro + Patriot Blast 480GB x2 + 12tb RAID10 NAS

MONITORS:Pixio PX329 32inch 1440p 165hz, LG 34UM68-p 1080p 75hz

This is without a case. I'm not sure what the current conversion is between USD and CAD but we can edit this list. a 970 evo is going to be really hard to add to this build with your budget

570 is a waste of money considerring the 580 is only a little more and offers a noticable advantage.  Also, I’d go with a silicon power 480gb ssd, only 60 bucks on newegg.  that eill let you store all active project files on your ssd.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

Well, his budget does not allow him the freedom to purchase those items. Also, 570s are still decent GPUs.

Since the B350M may need a bios update for that cpu, I would just stick with getting something like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FWVJSHC/?tag=pcpapi-20 . Also, its an iffy on the armor card; however, in this situation, I think it'll be a fine option, as long as the OP gets good air flow for the case. Also maybe switch the psu with the cx450w psu, which is only $20 including the MIB.

Ignore the HDD most people are suggesting. I'd you are doing alot on abelton and related programs you want a large SSD. Even if you have to skinp out on other parts it will def be worth it

I just recreated the list on the Canadian site and the price for the cpu+mobo+ram comes up to $403. The gpu retails for $300 but i might be able to get a 2nd hand 570 8gb for $150.

 

Im not too worried about the other components since they're most likely to go on sale during black friday/cyber monday.
