Hi All, with your help, every 5 years i build a new PC and its that time again.
I needed specifically for Audio production, heavy Sample Loads and also
heavy CPU loads on VSTs. My current Setup is an i7 5820k but its time to change.
After doing research i am still comfortable to stick with Intel, too scared of AMD
even though they have some nice Processors. Many people tried to talk me into
AMD but i can't give up, just too scared. So, being decided on the Platform,
based on the research i did i think the i9 10920X fits me best, budget and
whatever wise...even though all the I9s are so confusing now.
My question is not so somple, its: Where do i start now?
I need help mostly with CPU, RAM, Mobo and GFX, the rest will be easy for me
to figure out. Some of the requirements will be:
At least 2x m.2 Drives and probably 3-4 regular SSDs.
I'd go probably for 4x8GB, no more than 64GB of RAM
BlueTooth and/or Wifi would be nice too
I still need to use this: https://www.newegg.com/syba-model-s...4-card/p/N82E16815124107?Item=N82E16815124107
And i wanna stay more on the ASUS and GSkill side.
As of now this is all i came up with:

Intel Core i9-10920X Cascade Lake 12-Core 3.5 GHz
ASUS Prime X299-A II LGA 2066 Intel X299 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard
G.SKILL Flare X Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2933

Thank you All, i appreciate any help
