I would definitely get more than 8GB total RAM. I would get 16GB minimum.

Also, just be aware that you’re buying into a platform that I think is end-of-life. So you can probably upgrade the CPU to something better later, but you’ll be stuck with whatever is available on that socket type. The newest just released Intel CPUs are on a different socket/platform and won’t be compatible.

Other than that for other people to chime in with experiences you should probably let people know what you’re going to do on it. Mostly running VSTi or mostly mixing or mostly recording… etc…

Fully agreed with MattiasNYC.
You should go for 16GB (2x8GB), especially since you will use the on-board gfx.

The 11th-gen i5 is sufficient for most workloads, but today it is worth stretching a bit to get a 12th-gen i7, if having a quiet machine is important for you.

Make sure your new machine is also compliant to the Windows-11 requirements, whether you make the upgrade now or prefer waiting a while.

I just built a new PC with an Intel Core i5-11600K, it rocks. You need at least 16gb RAM and get an M.2 NVMe drive, they’re great.

thanks for the replies , I am either buying or building this one, and want it to last 10 years like the last one, so the 12th gen sounds like a good idea.

where did you buy your pats from and if you could what were the specs. thanks kevin

and I am not in a big hurry so I can wait if new tech is on the horizon

I got all my parts from Amazon UK.
