Built myself a new PC the other day. Getting tired of using a laptop, I guess. This is now my primary workstation, and a gaming rig. ---SPECS--- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P CPU: AMD FX-6300-BE Hard Drive: 1TB Seagate Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 DualX PSU: 750W Silverstone Cooler: Built-in OS: Windows 7 RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance

I got this machine built together with a good friend of mine a few years back. It's not exactly focused completely on music production, but it was aimed to go for performance, multitasking, and some gaming when i needed to stress out and gather some inspiration from somewhere. Of course, that will change one day since i do want a dedicated studio workhorse running on Xeon. Anyways, this is the current specs:
Asus ROG Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard Intel Core i7 3930k CPU w/ Corsair h100i watercooler "helps making the silence appear" Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 Graphics Card 16gb Ram / 4x4gb, G.Skill RipjawZ 1600Mhz Samsung SSD 840 PRO 256Gb 1TB HDD 2TB HDD LaCie Portable HDD Porsche Design 2TB PCIe to PCI 32Bit Adapter w/ Firewire 400 PCI Card
And an overkill 1250W PSU... But of course, it doesnt use 1250W when turned on.
Really nice piece of gear. I've put all the stuff in myself, so it's fast like hell. And if I think it's too slow, I just throw some new components in. Pretty awesome.
I'm against who says that, if you need that you want a stable system for music production, you have to buy a pre-built rig. So I built my one, and it's working well. Having a bit of computer knowledge helps you a lot!
dual core i3, 1 tb hdd, no graphics card, random psu from a company i've never heard of before, and a random motherboard. also has an optical drive and a floppy disk drive for portable storage needs
