I already have a case with a 300W power supply . I wanted to see if with the AMD FX - 8320 3.5GHz 8 - Core added to this list : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Nt2vrH I can realize my project for a DAW low economic profile .
you could maybe consider more wattage, as the 300W PSU is a bit 'weak'
maybe for the future upgrade possibilities
This would be a lot better. The Xeon outperforms the 8320 in every sense. Also, I don't think you'd utilize a medium- to high-end graphics card at all with just DAWs, so a small little card like this will suffice since the cpu doesn't have integrated graphics:

I trust in your understanding .. also the overall energy consumption is much lower , and I consider it to remain on the 300 W power supply.
If it's not that the motherboard is not a Firewire socket and that is Micro ATX ... ( thought to a size ATX ) would be perfect ; )
