Hi, I'm Rick I'm currently looking to build my first pc. It will 99% be used for music production. Fl Studio 20. I've began choosing my parts but I'm unsure as to which psu to go with. Here is my current parts list.

Would the integrated graphics be sufficient enough? I have no interest in gaming on it. Just music production. If you have any suggestions I'd really value all of your feedback.

Thanks in advance,

Rick

Hey thanks so much for taking the time to make some edits. By any chance what was your reason to swap out what you did if you don't mind explaining? Was it for cheaper alternatives? I have decided I'm going to get a seperate graphics card but I don't need anything crazy what would you pick as far as the most bang for your buck? I'm going to get the 9600k version without the integrated graphics.

quoted text Seagate SkyHawk 2 TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive. I noticed you swapped out the 2tb barracuda that's 7200rpms. I'm not sure but wouldn't the 7200rpms be faster performance?

Nope: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/343806-i-feel-like-we-need-to-figure-out-what-hdd-we-should-put-in-for-builds-for-others-to-get

As for the build:

since it's not needing to be overclocked, just picked a cheap Z390, cheaper RAM, and a faster SSD.

This is my new updated list I'm almost certain I'm going to go with this one.

I'm just receiving a compatibility issue warning in picker list saying if I use m.2 for my SSD or something it disables sata... I don't know what that means or if it matters in my situation. Thanks again for your help.

The warning means exactly what it says. If you use that m.2 slot you lose the use of one SATA port. The other SATA ports continue to work.

You went from integrated graphics to a fairly high end video card? That's fine, but if you were looking for something just a bit better than integrated graphics, I would have suggested a GT 1030 or an RX 570.

The reason for the change is because my budget has increased and would like to work with after effects smoothly. I just want to know that with all the parts I chose would I still have enough sata ports. I apologize this is my first time building a pc and alot of this especially the terms listed with what the motherboard include are jibberish to me.
