Building New DAW

I'm in the planning stage of building a new DAW. I'm most likely going to go with Cubase Pro 10 with a UR-RT audio interface.

I'll probably build the PC from components (Intel 7i 30Ghz, 16GB RAM, 256 GB SSD & 1TB 7200rpm HDD),,,or something along those lines. Any advice about the PC hardware would be appreciated!

The first question I have is whether I should get Window 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, or Windows 10 Workstation. Does it make a difference?

Is there any list of services or other Windows components that can be shut down? This will be a dedicated DAW so I want the OS as streamlined as possible.

O.K. - the more I read up on Cubase the more confused I am....

I found the UR-RT audio interfaces come with Cubase AI, so I continue my questions in that forum.....

You can upgrade that license to Pro for cheaper than buying Pro right away.

You can upgrade to Cubase Pro if you own one of the DAW's on this list and save some bucks, just need to send Steinberg a copy of your receipt or screen shot of your other daw's registration number.
