Welcome to the forum.

The first decision should be the CPU, then an appropriate MB. 9th gen (i9-9900K) was a good chip. 10th & 11th gen were refinements. 12th gen is new chip technology & is awesome. If budget permits, get the latest/greatest:

Gigabyte Z690 MB
32 or 64GB DDR5 or DDR4
Samsung or Western Digital PCIe 4.0 or PCIe 3.0 M.2 NVMe SSD
Nvidea GPU

(AMD Ryzen & Apple M1 are decent CPU's also, but I have no personal experience using them for Pro Tools rigs.)

Please read the last few pages of this thread:
Desktop: PT 2020.5 / Win11 / Intel 11th Gen i9 5.1GHz / 64Gb DDR4-3600 / Gigabyte Z590 Vision D / Focusrite LS56
Laptop: PT 2020.5 / Win10 / older HP ProBook with i7 quad / U-PHORIA UMC1820
Legacy (works!): PT 5 & 6 / OS9 & OSX / Mac G4 / DIGI001
