  1. Part-by-part breakdown.


I've chosen Windows 8.1 due to it better handling SSD's and for the free upgrade to Windows 10  


Not the best quality monitor, but a good budget monitor based on ratings  

Sound Interface

Any preferences for Firewire, USB or PCI-E? I've chosen the Scarlett 2i2 because of its great ratings on Amazon, and for being considered [one of the best budget audio interfaces by](Focusrite Scarlett 2i2)  

Let me know if you have any questions. Hope it helps =)
