Hi

Any comments about this build?
https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/AlexZS123/saved/LmpMcf

Want it quiet and fast with low latency, and with thunderbolt. To be used as a digital audio workstation and occasional gaming.

Is the memory and motherboard a good selection?

Should I have gone with an Z390 AORUS MASTER instead? Is there just as fast low latency memory available that may be better or cheaper?

Can anybody recommend a decent blu ray writer as it seems the one I selected won't fit?

Anything I'm missing?

Thanks!!

Alex

Changed the case to one that supports the DVD drive - the reason why the one you chose doesn't is because of the lack of ant external 5.25" bays. Other than that, they rest of the system is pretty good. I couldn't find any RAM that was cheaper at the same specs.

The motherboard could be made cheaper should you wish, but other than that, I don't think there's anything I'd change. This one has built in Bluetooth and WiFi https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/K3ndnQ/msi-mpg-z390-gaming-pro-carbon-ac-atx-lga1151-motherboard-mpg-z390-gaming-pro-carbon-ac
