For your uses, you need to have the most cpu cores available. Sound usage with NOX eats up your cpu.
One of the few uses I would suggest the AMD thread ripper. This set has the 12 core 24 thread AMD cpu. You can go higher with a 16, 24 or 32 core cpu. Really kicks the price up. Just the 16 core is an additional $324.00.
I stopped at 16GB's of RAM, a triple fan ASUS ROG STRIX GPU, the case is well ventilated one with multiple dust filters, PSU fully modular gold rated. I added 3 additional fans (this case comes with 2) you need to specify the "CP leaves the factory fans in and add your additional ones" or they may remove the factory fans. I added a 280mm sealed cooler that lists to completely cover the thread ripper (some may not). Made sure to throw in your extras.
Include the ultra care shipping and the premium warranty, without the warranty if you have any issues you would have to pay to ship back (this is the first really bull thing CP has done in a while. They should keep the first 30 day free RMA in place).
