Why does it say juli@ XTe Sound Card in the description then?

Well he is using that sound card, but an audio interface is what he uses to record his snyths and what not. Like lets say you have a Yamaha keyboard, well you would get some TS cables and hook them into the outputs of your keyboard, and the other end of your audio cable goes into the Audio interface. But yeah the XTe is his soundcard in the motherboard, the NI Komplete Audio 6 was what I was referencing. It's to the right of the headphones in the pic.

Hello, sorry for the delay answering, I was just using it while I got a pre-amp for the headphones and non-line-lvl insturments. Juli@ is a beautiful interface and has a very low latency.

Just beautiful :'). Stable, sounds great and very low-latency.

Gaming is not the main focus of the builder. I do not think it's justified to have that much GPU power... LOL

even if he wasnt using this for gaming, id still upgrade that gpu because why not? hes got an i7 anbd 32 gb of ram!

Maybe he doesn't want to? Its music production, he doesn't need one

what he is trying to say is "it's free to upgrade so why not?." However, he will be able to upgrade to 960 thought not an 970,unless he pays for the price difference between 970 and 960 I think

I think the step up program still requires you to pay the price difference between what you bought and the new product. If it's the same price, it would probably be worthwhile, but only if he was willing to put in the time to rework it.

There's always somewhere up to go... Having the base hardware to load a better GPU doesn't create the need for more graphics processing. The processing and RAM is needed for his work, the graphics are not.

What is this wristrest? and does it help?

  • 50 months ago

Just something I've found, it does help after working a few hours but not a lot. Noting better than an small break ;)

The GTX 970 would of been a much better GPU to put in, than dual GTX 760s...

Yes, I know I just used the GTX 760 for Hackintosh compatibillity. Thanks for the suggestion anyway :).

As an (amateur) composer and gamer myself, I can tell you that you don't need 32 gigs of ram. Anything over 8gb is overkill unless you're doing things such as video and picture editing. The i7 isn't really going to do you any good for gaming, but it might be useful for your music software. The GTX 760 is outdated and expensive, the GTX 970 is far better and cheaper. Don't worry too much, though. Even with all my gripes with your build, it should do great for anything you want to do with it, so long as you don't care too much about ultra-high graphics. Hope this was useful if you ever plan to build again in the future.

Not really.... I started with 8GBs and it wasn't enough for me, now I'm glad I have 16GB.

Good to know. If it's working for you, that's great.

8 is standard, but 16 is just special. if the CPU and GPU can run it, ram will never be an issue. 16 is also great for APU's (especially if it is fast)

edit: and 32 is just plain stupid unless your a major developer or server guy

DAWs regularly require this level of RAM. This is not gaming, guys.

32 Gig can certainly be used to create a mean RAM drive. Also, some people like fiddling with virtual machines, so that extra RAM certainly helps there too.

Also, if you have the option to max out the RAM in your system, why not? DDR4 will eventually become the standard, forcing DDR3 prices up. Buy it now instead of later when it's super expensive and 8 GB is no longer enough.

How do you mean?

Yeah maybe I went to far XD. Using loads of orchestral samplers do take loads of ram but never used more than 16gb (for now). Thanks for the suggestion!
