For specs like that you don't need a custom build, which will always be more expensive. For an audio production laptop, you should avoid gfx chips made for gaming. They use more power, run hotter, increase the cost and drain the battery faster. The i5 processor has adequate built in gfx power for normal tasks.

I've got a similarly specced HP Elitebook 2760p and can def recommend it. They can be had for less than $200 and feature a stronger build quality than your typical HP, as well as a pressure sensitive touch screen (very convenient for DAW control). You can max the RAM out to 16, I believe, but 8 is still doing fine for me.
