I'm looking for a PC that will be able to run modern games at a reasonable graphics level and one that can handle recording music through pro tools (Guitar, Bass and drum programs) I'll also need a monitor(dual screens if it can be in the budget) if two won't be in the budget then one will be okay until I can afford the next one

Do you live near a Microcenter by any chance?

The closest one is about 30 minutes away so if it was worth it I could make the trip. Why?

They have insane bundle deals on CPUs and Motherboards. Also they're just about the only place that has the i7 6700k going for the actual retail price of $349.

Also they have good PSU and Storage deals to. It's like a big theme park for computer enthusiasts. Even if you aren't buying anything, it's worth a trip just to poke around and see the massive amount of stuff they have on display.

It's really just a lot of great deals.

I might have to go check it out. So they have pretty much everything I would need to build an entire computer? That may be better than ordering things online lol

They have every single part required. Maybe not the specific one you want, but they do have a large selection of CPUs/Mobos/RAM/GPUs/Cases/PSUs etc. It's worth a visit.
