What pre-built or custom PC to buy for orchestra sample libraries?

What specific brand/model PC with gen-12 i9, 64gb ram, 2tb ssd should I buy for large sample libraries like BBCSO Pro?

I am unable to build my own pc. What pre-built (or custom-built) computer can I buy online?

I'm in the States if that matters. Thank you!


  • I recommend getting a MacBook Pro with a M1/M2 silicon chip, they rock 8/10 cpu cores depending on model. I switched from windows to Mac in the beginning of this year, and I’m never going back, was on windows for 10 years and the experience was not great, ever. But if your budget prevents you getting a Mac, I recommend saving up, getting a windows pc isn’t worth it tbh.

    Design your own, completely silent due to fanless cooling...


    But I was told the next AMD will arrive soon, by years end, allowing for 128 GB RAM...

    I am standing by...
