Hi all, I am just about to order the following PC components for a new build and have a query on the motherboard. Currently my preferred MB Asus Z490-A Prime is out of stock most places. There are a couple of others which are similar but I am unsure if they are good enough or if perhaps the -A version is more than Ineed. If there are any PC experts I would appreciate advice.
Preferred Z490-A Prime
Option 1 Z490-P Prime
Option 2 Z490M-Plus Prime.
there are several other Asus Z490 one so its a little confusing.
Will be using with…
RAM 32GB (2x16) LPX 3000
OS Drive M.2 970 Evo Plus 512GB
Samples and Sounds Drive M.2 970 Evo PLus 1GB
BeQuiet PSU SP11 700W 80+ Gold
Other parts not mentioned as less important to build.
I did want the Samsung Pro 1Tb M.2 drive which is twice the speed but I was advised it would only run in this system at 3500.
I mainly run soft synths, Omnisphere, N.I. Ultimate, Most of the Steinberg Instruments, Korg Legacy.
I estimate i would run a minimum 30 VST Tracks (i dont like having to freeze or render in place) and say 10 Audio tracks.
