Hi there, I'm building a PC purely for using audio software at a high level. I need good processing power and good RAM. I have put a low GPU in as I can always upgrade later on down the line.

Do you guys have any advice or would you swap anything out to save more/squeeze more performance?

All help is appreciated :)

Hello there!!
You didn't mention your budget so it becomes difficult to suggest you something I would recommend you this especially if you earn money through your pc.

Your build will work as is.
Some thoughts:

No need for the gt1030 The 10700K included integrated graphics.
Suitable for all but high refresh gaming.
It can drive a 4k monitor@60hz via displayport.

From what I see, the new Z590 motherboards are no more expensive than their Z490 predecessors.

To get best performance, you need a better cooler to let the processor turbo up to the max.
Here is noctua's suitability guide for the i7-10700K:

For comparison, the AF 34 is probably similar to the NH-U12s.
Not bad, but not best either.
