Advice needed on new PC

Recommended Posts

I want to upgrade, keep my old PC as a sort of media centre / everyday worksation and buy a new PC. I can pick the parts and some company will assemble everything. They have a pretty nice PC builder page where you can't really mess it up (https://www.alternate.nl/Pc-builder#!/components).

Now I have no clue as to what goes well together or that there will be potential problems. So here is my pick. I'm building a pretty futureproof system I think. It will be used for music production and some slight video editting. Regarding the videocard, I'm just getting what is possible. I don't need a 3090, so anything decent in the 100-200 price range is fine. Nothing fancy.

So here it is, some advice will be highly appreciated. Or just confirmation that this will work.

Intel® Core i9-11900K, 3,5 GHz (5,3 GHz Turbo Boost) socket 1200 processor € 529,00

GIGABYTE AORUS Z590 ELITE AX, socket 1200 moederbord € 179,00

Noctua NH-D15 cpu-koeler € 99,90

Kingston FURY 64 GB DDR4-3200 Kit werkgeheugen € 269,00

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 1030 Low Profile D4 2G grafische kaart € 104,90 // Or whatever is possible which won't cost the same as my processor.

SAMSUNG 980 PRO, 2 TB SSD € 239,00 // Main Windows/VST drive. I know it is better to keep Windows seperate, but I'm not that 'technical'. I will definitely mess that up.

SAMSUNG 870 QVO, 4 TB SSD € 249,00 // Sample library data drive

Seagate Exos X16 16 TB Harde schijf € 299,00 // Overall data storage

Fractal Design Define R6 tower-behuizing € 139,90

Fractal Design Ion Gold 850W voeding € 84,90

Microsoft Windows 11 Pro software € 139,00

Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM case fan € 29,99

Totaal € 2.362,59

When it comes to low latency audio, the 11900k is a performance step backward (vs the 10th Gen 10900k).

The newest 12900k (12th Gen) smokes them both.

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't think the 12th gen is available at this moment. But maybe soon. They aren't even that much more expensive I see. 

And rest of the setup? Would it work? No bottlenecks?

I'm typing this on a 12th Gen i9-12900k based DAW.   😉

Ah yes I believe the chip itself is available, just not in that particular part picker. Shows my level of expertise. Anyway, a similar setup but with a 12 gen (and diffirent mobo etc) should work then?

so, the typing is really fast then? 😐

Typing isn't faster... but the 12900k exists in the here/now.

If you want to run heavy loads at lowest possible latency, there's not a better CPU.
