Tossing a 16 core server cpu in my gaming PC #YOLO

On a more serious note, how much should I expect to spend on a decent speaker and sub setup for the desktop I plan to build?

Also, how much memory is ideal at this point for a not-quite-hardcore gaming and occasional video editing and audio recording setup?

Not quite sure if you know what YOLO stands for nowadays...

How important is listening to music via the system for you?

Why Opteron?

It's been a long time since they've been useful on server boards or pin mods.

I'll be listening to music constantly. I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile but being a musician I can generally tell good sound quality from bad. Would 50ish dollars get me something good?
