Well I'd personally just use a 4TB HDD & a 80gb SSD
LOL! Windows uses half of that and that's without the updates.

Just to follow up... My new computer is a beast. So far, the only thing that pushes Reason to the limit is the Fab Filter Pro L 2 x2, both set to 32x oversampling. I'll keep y'all posted if I run into any other roadblocks. For now, I'm very happy.

Edit: don't worry, I fixed that back exhaust fan.

Any particular reason you're going for a 7th-generation i7 instead of a newer 8th or 9th generation? For instance, the i7-8700k or i7-9700k.

Also, in my experience 16gb of RAM has been plenty for using Reason even with multiple big Kontakt instruments. My old i7-4790k CPU has been a bottleneck sometimes, but not RAM. It might be a better choice to put that money toward a 1TB SSD so you can more freely put sample libraries on it for faster loading.
Thanks for this, btw - I went with the 9700k and made several albums.
