The reasons are simple. You want more performance and you find that in gaming rigs.
You'll also learn that the desktops are best for the higher performance parts you can get there for less cost.
And finally, call and talk to the software maker to see what they suggest.
Hello, I am wanting to buy a new desktop pc for music production. Currently I am using a Packard Bell Easy Note TS,
The easy note TS has 4GB of RAM, 2.30 Ghz Intel I5 processor, 500GB HDD, 4GB DDR3 Memory.
My problem is I am running many vst's (plugins) and having an extremely hard time processing them. When I get too about 5-6 tracks the project is struggling to load and my CPU usage is peaking constantly.
I am just looking for some specifics on what too get in a future machine, My budget is a maximum of £1000 and I am not interested in gaming, it will be solely for music production and the internet.
I need the computer to be able to handle pratically infinite amounts of plugins with reverb and other processor heavy stuff.
