Here's the parts that I'd like to have:


    CPU
    Motherboard
    Ram
    PSU




I don't think music production would require a gfx card, I'd love to have more info regarding this.
Go aaaaas cheap as you can. I'd be using Fl studio, if that helps you by any chance..

Budget is around 250$ or 15000 rupees.

The parts you provide must be available in India.

Also, I've heard music production needs at least 8gb of ram, and 4 cores. I was thinking of this build:

The cpu here is fx 6300.

Suggest me if you got something better!

Will you be using lots of VST's? Will you be using an audio interface?

A good place to start would be FL Studio 12 minimum requirements:
2 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 / AMD Athlon 64 (or later) compatible CPU with full SSE2 support.
32 or 64 Bit versions of Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, XP (with service pack 3)
1 Gb or more RAM recommended.
1 Gb free disk space.
Soundcard with DirectSound drivers.

you should've at least bothered reading what I asked, refer to my main question again, and revise stuff.

One last question, 64 or 32 bit OS? You would benefit from the 64 bit and 8 gigs of ram since using lots of VST's. If you go with the FX processor in your link you'll need a GPU.

64 for sure, and why so? why does music production even need gpu? 6 cores do the job, yes?

I have 2x 2gb of ram, dd2 833mhz.
According to the build that I'm going with for now, I get 4gb in one piece, with 1833 mhz. The motherboard I go with has 4 slots, so I can keep 8gb for now, (4gb of it sucks since they're slow pieces of shit but ok, and I can upgrade later.)
So temporarily, I'll have 8gb anyhow.. This gives me a chance to add new things in the future, and deals with my current purpose too. what do you think?
And about



again I repeat myself, do I really need a gpu for production?
I currently have a dual core e7200 around 7 years old. i run at 64 bit, fl studio is not a huge problem at it dude. it can process shit, but at some hard drops and too many elements, it lags out. I have no graphic card, what I mean to say here is, having such an old processor works surprisingly well for me! and yet, I do not own a graphic card..

You cannot use the DDR2 ram you already have in a new build, you will need DDR3 if using an FX CPU, or DDR4 if going with Skylake. Your old processor, has a built in GPU, which is why you can use it without a dedicated GPU. If you go with a Skylake build, the GPU is built in. If you go with an FX processor, you will need a separate GPU as you will not have a way to get video to your monitor without it.

RAM is cheap, I'd recommend you just get 8GB of new Ram from the start.
