Thank you!A way better build for you:
-The Noctua NH-D15 is better as you can see in the charts
-Thermal Paste Round-up: 85 Products Tested
-The Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO got better VRM and you can add a Thunderbolt card later.
-Faster and cheaper RAM
-One 2TB NVMe SSD is way faster than 2 SATA, so you can install
all there with no performance loss, you can create 2 partitions
in the big NVMe SSD, one small for the OS/Programs and one big
for the rest. The Corsair MP510 is fast, got big endurance and
-For audio workloads I prefer AMD GPUs, see why
-An excellent ventilated case with USB-C port
BTW, now it is not the time, wait just a bit because AMD is launching new CPUs
This means Intel will lower the current prices and the new AMD CPUs may be better
or equal and less expense than the Intel options.
I did read that Intel is planning a price cut for the 9900k and am waiting. Also haven't found a buyer for my current rig yet.
Regarding SSDs, I currently have a 1 tB SATA SSD, could probably use this as the system drive and use the 2TB NvMe drive for samples yes?
