Re: New System Build - optimal hardware?
A comment from our resident DAW building guru on Ryzen:
"Due to the current state of first-gen X370 motherboards, we won't build Ryzen DAWs for clients.
If you're tech savvy, you can deal with the idiosyncrasies. If not, it can bring things to a screeching halt.
At a similar price point, the 6850k (vs. the 1800x) is hard to beat. Absolutely rock-solid."
I would seriously consider an Intel system. A 7th gen i7 or 8th gen i7
