Quiet Gaming PC?
I'm considering building a Gaming PC, but I don't want it to sound like a jet engine. How much does the case factor into building a quiet PC? I'm considering going with an Apevia X-Jupiter-JR Case. It features two 120mm fans. I could go with an Antec Sonata series case, but it won't look as cool. http://www.apevia.com/product.php?pid=243&xcSID=f945ff094a5687074050475adfbac29f

Fans or Liquid Cooling for PC?
Ok, so my room is incredibly warm during the summer and my mom refuses to get an AC for my room cause...its for ME to protect my PC and since its not her stuff, she won't spend any money. Anyway...I'd say the room is warm but not to the point that you're sweating. So my Intel C2D E6750 is hitting the high 60s C and since the max is 72 I gotta bring it down. I'm replacing the heatsink with an Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and I wanna know if that will have any significant temperature drop. I will be cleaning out and dust in the fans also (though there's not much, PC is only 2 months old). Ideally I want it to stay in the 40s when I'm doing online stuff and 50s to low 60s for gaming. However, if there's not a big drop, would liquid cooling be ideal, I don't overclock but seeing as how my CPU is in the danger zone, I really don't have choice. And please don't say get an AC; I am capable of paying for one but my mother also uses the room and so refuses to get one for above reasons.

Do I need water-cooling for this gaming PC build?
I'm building a mid-range gaming PC and I would like to know if I will need water-cooling for this setup. I will be be buying all the parts in about 2 weeks so I'd like some opinions now so I don't have problems later. Here's the build: Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 (HAF= High Air Flow so I figure i'm ok right?) CPU: i5-2500k (I can't decide on overclocking, but if I do OC, I want to be right around 3.8-4.0mhz will I need WC for that?) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V6 GT (Do I need a better cooler? this one is $60, will it do?) GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 Windforce (It has a triple fan setup which means max airflow) Mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro RAM: 8GB of DDR3-1333 PSU: Corsair 650w (Do I need more power?) HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
What gaming PC should I get?
There are so many choices out there as far as gaming PC's go, and where I'm an avid console gamer, I hardly know anything about computers, and I don't know what to get. I'm really hoping to stay in a budget of around $2000 (or less, of course), while still being able to run high-quality games like fps's well.
Do you reccommend liquid cooling. What are the inns and outs of it. Im buying a new computer which will be used mostly for pc gaming, Core2 Duo E8500, Not sure which sli motherboard, 2 9800gt graphics card both 1gb. 4gb ram. Also is the antec gaming case 900 able to have liquid cooling.
I need some assistance with liquid cooling a custom PC?
I am a pretty computer savvy person. I built myself a custom gaming rig from the ground up and it runs very well. However, my knowledge of computers stops at liquid cooling which is the next thing I want to try my hand at next. First order of business is all the components. I know it will probably cost me several hundred dollars for this endeavor but I have no clue what brands are any good when it comes to cooling. If someone could point me in the right direction brand wise I can narrow my search parameters. Second issue, I have a Coolermaster Storm Scout case. This is the one designed for LAN gaming so it has a massive handle on the top, eliminating room for a radiator. Also, the only other place i can think to put a radiator would block the whole view of the interior of the case. I realize this is a little dumb but if I am going through the effort to liquid cool I also want my work to be seen. I would not be against purchasing an alternate case IF it was absolutely necessary as I realize that my current case is not very LC friendly. Third area of concern. I currently have a GTX460 which I hope to replace with one of AMDs new models next year if they are good. How hard is it to add on a block for the GPU at a later date if I end up cooling the system prior to getting a different card? If someone could help me out that would awesome. I just need somewhere to start, I am a little intimidated with this particular project but I would love to know how to do all this for future rigs.
Can a liquid cooling system be BAD for my PC?
I recently purchased a used custom gaming computer with a liquid cooling system. When the PC arrived, some of the components were loose inside, and I was able to put them back in. When I powered it up, everything seemed fine except whenever the PC has to do anything remotely strenuous, (like run two programs at once god forbid!) It turns itself off! No warning, no windows shut down, etc. I opened it up again and a jumper fell out from somewhere. I had enough and brought it to the PC repairman. When he found out there was a liquid cooling system in there, he immediately said that I should remove it. He said that the humidity in our tropical climate will condense around the system and drop into other components and ruin them. I googled this but didn't find anything on the topic. Has anyone experienced this before? Can condensation from a liquid cooling system destroy a computer? Thanks for reading my question! :-)

Question about liquid cooling?
So i plan on getting a gaming computer and for liquid cooling, what goes in it and do i need to change it? If so how? Why? And how often? Would it be better to just get normal cooling(fans)?

Cooling for a budget gaming PC?
Here are my specs... CPU: Intel Core i7-950 RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333, Kingston GPU: EVGA GTX 460 (768mb) PSU: 600W OCZ ModXStream Pro CPU cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212+ Mobo: ASUS P6X58D-E HDD: 500GB WD Caviar Black DVD Burner: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS I haven't bought a case yet because I'm still unsure what kind of airflow my system will need to keep cool when I'm playing modern PC games (Black Ops or New Vegas, for instance). Liquid cooling tubes are not an option, so please keep any suggestions to regular cases with fans. Thanks! Would this be a good pick? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119203 I don't want to overkill on the cooling and pay too much; I don't plan on overclocking any parts in my machine...

What is the best way to ship a liquid-cooled pc?
I am trying to sell my custom built gaming pc with liquid cooling, but I don't want to put it on ebay, because I don't know how I would ship the computer safely with the liquid in it. Any suggestions on how I could do this, other than draining the computer or only offering local pick up? Would shipping insurance cover repair cost if the system leaked in shipping and damaged the computer?
What's a good list of PC components for building a gaming PC?
I want an epic gaming pc, that WON'T break the bank. I'm willing to go upwards around $1500-$2000. I want a total Kick-A$$ gaming pc. I most certainly will not do liquid cooling (i mean with resevoirs, pumps, and all that stuff) Any money you can save me will be great. I don't need a monitor, mouse, headphones, or any of that stuff. I want this focused on parts not peripherals. Links Please :)) Thanks!
What video card should I start my build with?
I'm looking to build a semi-budget ($600 or less) gaming PC in the next six months or so that will play Guns of Icarus online, Sanctum 2, Shogun 2, Medieval 2, M&B Bannerlords, stuff like that. I have no idea what video card to start with - it has to be air-cooled with fans (not comfortable with liquid cooling), support Dx 10, carry 1 GB VRAM and shader support, and ideally cost $150 or less. The type of chips available and the number of generations on-market now is a little daunting. Any advice? I'm also planning on building with a Quad 2.5 GHz, 8 GB RAM and supporting Win 7 64-bit.
How do i know if a new pc case will line up with the existing ports on my motherboard?
i recently started upgrading my pc turning it into a high end gaming pc. i want to buy a new case that supports better airflow for my newly added gear. i also would like to have some extra space for a liquid cooling system. id like to know if theres a way to know if the motherboard ports will lineup, if i will have to move/extend them to the ports on the new pc. if so how? the model number of my current pc is dx4840-11e
What maintenance, if any, needs to be done to a liquid cooling unit on a computer?
I just got my first gaming PC. When I bought this, because I didn't trust myself to build my own on my first try, I decided to get liquid cooling. Along with all the normal fans. Do I need to clean the unit? If so how? Do I add fresh water or is there some coolant I need to buy? I literally know nothing about liquid cooling so any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions, it's just that I have over $1000 put into this and I have terrible luck with overheating technology. What allenviljoen said made me think of one more question about this computer. Right now my computers temp holds at 20-25 degrees C, I think the highest its got to is 24 C actually. Is that a good temp? I'm used to Fahrenheit. My house is freezing, especially now in winter, so room temp shouldn't be a huge problem.

How do I properly seal a liquid-cooled PC case?
I just bought the parts for my very first custom-built PC. I saw some really cool pictures of liquid-cooled gaming cases, so I decided to use my old fish tank to save some money. Here's a picture of my setup, including the water: http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/71/2ec21cd3b5f2418a9de2e3ec416a54e3/l.jpg The video card isn't in yet, as you can see, because it doesn't fit inside the fish tank. I'm working on modifying the card so it will fit snug against the side. When I tried to put it in the first time, the side scraped against the glass and now there's a small crack with water leaking out. What's the best way to seal the case before I power it up for the first time?

How much is my gaming PC worth?

What parts can I use for my custom PC to cool my system more efficiently?
I need to cool my PC a lot more. The temperature gets too high and I need better parts. My problem is just finding the right ones. I really need help on buying the right parts, because I use this system for heavy gaming and video editing. (Very big and resource demanding) also because this system was very expensive and I don't want to see it go to waste. Please be sure I am buying compatible parts for my system. Thank you. My specs are below :) Processor: Intel(R) Core™ i5-2500K 3.30 GHz 6M Intel Smart Cache LGA1155 Cooling system w/ fan: (Sealed water cooling unit) (Non replaceable coolant) Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan (Enhanced Cooling Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA) (Single Standard 120MM Fan) MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (Kingston HyperX) MOTHERBOARD: * [CrossFireX] GigaByte Z68AP-D3 Intel Z68 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ Intel Smart Response Tech. & 7.1 Dolby Home Theater Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, 2x SATA-III RAID, mSATA Connector onboard, 2 Gen2 PCIe, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI (All Venom OC Certified) POWERSUPPLY: 800 Watts - Standard Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 16X PCIe Video Card Like I was saying, I need to buy better, but compatible parts to cool my PC. I was going to replace the Power Supply, and the cooling system, but I am not sure which parts are compatible. I need suggestions on what to buy. I was thinking of buying an 800-900 watt Corsair power supply this time, since those usually get great reviews. And for the cooling system, what are my options? I called CyberPower PC (Company I bought the PC from) and they told me that my water cooling unit was a sealed unit and that I never had to replace the coolant. So I was looking for a better sealed water cooling unit that is compatible with the specs above that doesn't require the yearly coolant replacement. Any help is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks :)

Help with running Civilization more smoothly in my laptop?
Well I have Civ V and I think a going to buy a gaming pc, so is just for now. I want my computer to be able to run civ v without overheating(NO cooling liquids is not an option) its a very crappy laptop and all I want is to it stop the processor to sound like its going to explode. Im thinking of something to be able to make the game a priority in my computer so it only focus in running the game. So help or any other thing.
What would it cost to make a Dust-proof water cooled PC case?
Hey, I'm wondering what it would cost in order to make a silent running, dust free, high performance gaming PC with water cooling. Can someone give me an estimate? I know a good water cooling system is around $500 but have no clue what it would cost to make a PC dust proof and eliminate the air flow.
How long would this gaming pc configuration stay up to date?
I plan on building a pc and might spend around 2000 if it will stay up to date. It will have a core i7 4770k that will be liquid cooled by corsair h100i and oc to 4.5ghz. I will have a 4gb winforce gtx 770 from nvidia.and later I will put another in for sli to (update it later when price comes down a little ) it will have 16gb 1600mhz ddr3 ram. Has an ssd and 2tb hdd saber tooth z87 motherboard and I found an awesome looking case that will keep it cool all powered by a 1000 psu to run the 2 770 and oc the cpu. How long will this be (top of the line) basically play games on ultra at 30+fops like bf4 then bf5 etc. how many years should it be able to play nearly all games on ultra. And when it's outdated would I have to just replace the graphics cards for a~500 or would I need new motherboard and everything else as well.
What are your thoughts on this gaming PC build?
I'm currently in the process of scoping out parts to build a PC and finally finished the complete specs plan for it and I would like to know if you guys thought of it. I want your thoughts on how well it'll run modern and future games (i.e., FPS and graphical quality). I'm aware that the parts are good but I would just like an outside opinion (just to be thorough). The specs are as follows: CPU - Intel Core i5 3570k Overclocked to 4.4Ghz. GPU - Chillblast NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB Memory - Corsair 16GB PC3-12800 1600Mhz DDR3 (2 x 8GB sticks) MOBO - Asus P8Z77-V Motherboard. Storage - Samsung 840 Series 120GB SSD and 2TB 7200RPM HDD - 6GB/s. PSU - Corsair Ultra Low Noise 600W. Cooling - Corsair Hydro Series H55 Liquid Cooler and Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Paste. Case - Corsair Carbide 200R Mid Tower Case. Optical Drive - LG Blu-Ray/DVD RW Combo Drive. Sound - Onboard Hi-Def Audio. Operating System - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit. Peripherals included. Price: £1129.15 (ex. VAT) £1354.99 (inc. VAT) Once again: please let me know what you think. Is the cooling sufficient? Is the PSU? How well will it run games such as Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and 4 (when released), Crysis 2 and 3, CoD 4 Promod, League of Legends and games like it. Any answer would be really appreciated. Thanks for reading!
Where can I buy a custom gaming PC for a reasonable price?
I had always bought from ABS. However, they chose to only build liquid cooled systems. I think liquid cooling is more trouble than it's worth. Can you recommend a good place to buy a custom PC that isn't too expensive? Voodoo & Falcon Northwest are way over-priced.
Can Someone help me pick out parts for a custom gaming pc?
Hey, I want to buy custom parts for a new computer starting from scratch. The problem is that have no clue what parts to choose! I am willing to spend about 1,500$ on it. I already have a Monitor, keyboard, speakers, mouse, etc. All i need help with is a cool case and gaming parts.
How long would a good gaming PC be useful?
Basiclly I am wondering how long would I be able to keep a decent rig before the games out run the pc. I know I can get upgrades here and there but even that has it's limits. And can I get some recomendations on where to start shopping.
What is a good cooling system for a high end gaming pc?
i am looking for both external and internal but not built in as i already have a case, aslo this is the first time im not getting liquid cooling and have heard that for internal systems you usually need to slightly mod your case (case is coolermaster stacker 830)
Will this build have enough power to play Skyrim and battlefield 3 at max settings?
I want to get into pc gaming and im going to buy a pc and sinply upgrade it over the years, seeing as I found what I think is a good deal ,here are the specs. iBUYPOWER POWER TG930SLC Gaming PC - 3rd Gen.

How can I get a good gaming computer for little to no cost?
Im 14 years old and live in pretty much the middle of nowhere. I have a laptop that runs simple games or ones that aren't too high quality. It's the only working computer in my house so i get maybe an hour or so a day. It's not a matter of me being lazy and not wanting to earn what i get, because I am more than willing to. The problem is like I said, I live in a really small town. Most adults in my town struggle to find a decent job let alone a 14 year old. I've heard all the classics "mow some lawns, or shovel some snow" but those wont cut it. A good gaming rig can cost up to 2 grand and oddjobs like that wont do it. I have school and the after school work that comes with it, so I honestly dont have much time for any other kinds of work. My parents are of no help either given that its not too long after Christmas and the debt that comes with that is still there. I see people on youtube who are more than capable of purchasing their own computer get top of the line hardware for free just because they sey something like "oh i dont like my computer", well there must be some way to at least get a half price computer or something more manageable than 2 grand. I could go on for days, but i should bring it to a close.
What do you guys think about this computer?

I plan to play Day-z (arma 2 mod) and some higher end games like BF3. What do you think? If you can find any better deals please show me!
Will my liquid cooler be safe on a plane?
So tomorrow I'm going on an extended vacation to the east coast, and like any gamer, cannot be without my rig for that long, But I am worried about my liquid cooling system, as it is an all in one setup, I am worried about a possible blow out of my liquid while in transit. Anybody have experience with traveling on a plane with liquid cooling on your PC rig?

Price of Building a High Quality Gaming PC?
What would be an accurate price for building a high quality Gaming PC? One that could handle high FPS HD graphics, a fast processor, a really good video card, and a large SSD.
Is there any software that can show CPU temperature (ten points offered)?
I actually got more questions than just one in this post: I'm looking into building a gaming PC since my laptop tends to overheat (and nearly died on one occasion) from running games on it. That being said, I'm going to make a liquid-cooled desktop PC with hardware that can handle processing video games. And I'd also want to know how effective the liquid cooling would be in comparison to the traditional fan method. So, does anyone here know what software I should get that can read a computer's internal temperature, along with good components for a liquid-cooling system? @Ryu & Stick Will speedfan have any adverse effects on the coolant system?
I cleaned dust from my PC, but why my PC still makes lots of noise ?
My desktop had noise so I cleaned dust from my PC, but it still had same noise. So I brought new large CPU fan, Vortex Plus. But it sill have same noise. I am not running video games, I am just doing internet. My computer have problem ? I should buy new desktop ? But it would be a big waste, if the new computer has same noise. Maybe I will buy liquid cooler liquid cooling system like CWCH70. But the big question is what if I have the same noise.
Need ideas for what components to get to build my pc?
So I was wondering what are the best top components for graphics cards , what would be a sensible size of a hard drive, motherboards, cases, water cooling ,really I would like a list of the top range computer components to get an idea for an awesome workstation/ gaming pc
What do I need to find for building a computer?
What parts do i have to look for when building a desktop? I'm trying to get my own computer to use for graphic arts stuff, film and animation, creating music, and gaming. I do have the money to try this.
Can a graphics card help reduce fan noise?
I run my pc on integrated graphics and the fans are fairly quiet until i start playing games like world of warcraft and then they get pretty loud and its just during games cause when i exit the fans go quiet in a short amount of time. I was thinking it was because im using the motherboard graphics and since the graphic capabilities are fairly weak the motherboard would be doing extra work and the fan would spin faster or something to reduce the extra heat from using it to play games but im not sure. I'm planning to get a new graphics card and i was wondering if it would also help reduce the noise of the case or cpu fan.
Where can I prevent shut down of my computer on windows 7?
When I am doing something "intense" on my computer such as playing games or working in after effects it sometimes will randomly shut down and try to reboot. My old roomate fixed this by adjusting a setting somewhere on the computer. Does anyone know where a button like this would be on windows 7? Usually this happens when it gets too hot in my room.

What do I need to do to convert a liquid-cooled PC to air-cooled?
A friend has a liquid cooled PC that he wants to convert to air cooled. He is tired of having to maintain it and frankly, he doesn't really know how which makes things worse. It constantly overheats because of air in the system. He no longer plays the latest and greatest games on this PC, so he doesn't really have the need for liquid cooling anymore. I know people usually go the opposite direction with this conversion, but hopefully someone out there can help. I'm in the IT field and not computer illiterate by any means, so feel free to get technical. From what I can think of, I will need a new CPU heat sink and fan as well as case fans. I'm not sure what else since I don't have the computer in front of me at the moment, but I'm trying to get a list of possible purchases he'll need to make.
Do I need liquid cooling for this gaming pc?

I don't aim on doing any overclocking, so it made me wonder if some systems just "need" liquid cooling according to how much vendors vent about it; but thank you. Coopasaurus I checked out them links! Fantastic, mate - cheers for sharing! Mitchy Deez - Thats really some valuable advice! I wonder if there's much of a performance difference between I7-2600 and I7-2600k, but I'll try out the benchmarks online. Was also suspicious about the motherboard, thanks for your suggestions! Cheers!

which is better a fan cooled pc or water cooled pc ?
I want to buy a new computer thats for gaming and regular use ( internet, word processing , etc.) what will be the better option getting a liquid cooled pc or a fan cooled I know liquid cooling has little noise and thats what I want But I also dont want to do lots of maintenance to a liquid cooled pc because I heard it constantly needs to be checked for possible leaks and also I dont want liquid to leak out and ruin my $750 computer. Would it be better to get a fan cooler that has a small unit that makes cool air ( like an ac ) and then pushes that air in the computer or just get liquid cool? I cant afford to ruin the new computer. I belive this new type of cooling is made by a company called artoc or somthing. what should I do? I want quiet but I dont want to mess up the computer if somthing goes wrong. also There are 2 younger kids in the house so I dont want bad Chemicles left around the computer. whats best for cooling? The company im buying from can customize the computer anyway I need like adding different/upgraded components.
Building a Gaming PC Help?
I am not an inexperienced gamer, but I have never actually BUILT my own rig before. Here's what I need: A good tower with enough space for upgrades, 8GB DDR3 (gonna get 16 later, so need enough space in tower), at least a GTX 570-580 (again, gonna upgrade to 680 later), 750GB to 1TB of hard drive space, and whatever else I need to build a complete PC. Liquid cooling with an overclocker would be nice, but i'm trying to stay around $1300-$1500 if possible. I need a monitor, preferably 2ms, but this is not necessary. I already have a keyboard and mouse picked out. Please put a list of links for all of the items (newegg preferred). Thanks! Forgot to add! I need a 7200 rpm drive for my games. Thanks!
Building a custom gaming PC, are those specs good?
Hey all! I've recently gone tired of my old rusty PC that's been with me for arounddd..~ 4-4.5 years or so? I'm up for building a new one, and one that will last me for around 3 to 5 years, during that time I'll be "Fuck this, I can even RUN [Insert Crysis 3 wannabe]." Currently those are the specs I'm up for: CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1100T (6 x 3.3 GHz) AM3 9MB CPU heatsink - Corsair Hydro Series H70 (Advanced Liquid Cooling) - FREE GAME Memory - Corsair 16GB PC3-12800 1600 MHz (4x4GB) - Lifetime Warranty (DDR3) Motherboard - Asus M4A89TD PRO/USB3 (AMD 890FX) Sound - Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional (PCI-E) Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 - 1536 MB - (EVGA) (PCI-E) Power Supply - Cooler Master 1000W Silent Pro I don't want an extreme top 10 out of 10 PC, I want something decent that will be able to run stuff clearly, I don't mind reducing a bit of graphic settings in games for good performance. To simplify it, on games I want to usually be on High settings, not Ultra High, and be able to run most latest games smoothly. Most of my friends tell me the specs are good but I'm not really sure, anything I need to replace?

I am wanting to do some overclocking and also help my system run cooler altogether.

Anti-Damage PC liquid cooling?
I was looking around online for liquid cooling to build a 2nd Gaming Rig but im skeptical of liquid cooling, as i have seen some people have leaks after a few months or about a year and their entire machine was ruined, 1000's in the trash. Are there liquid cooling devices that if a leak is sprung it will not damage your hardware, I have heard of this concept before but can't find anything online about it. If anyone knows please tell me, also a link or name for a product that would be recommended would be nice.

Whats a good gaming PC?
I'm looking for a gaming PC lower than $1600. I need dual Nvidia Geforce 8800GT graphics cards or just 1 is okay. I should include(optionally)some 5.1 or 7.1 speakers, specifically logitech. It should look cool on the exterior and viewing the interior is a must, I'd prefer for some cool HDR/LED lighting. I will need a high powered processor. I would also prefer if the PC makers could overclock it to the max with stability, so when I get the PC parts are already overclocked but stable. I'll need some cooling systems, I'm not looking for expensive top of the line liquid cooling, but something that can cool all the high powered components but not be noisy either, I'd prefer if it looked cool, like a Vigor Gaming Monsoon Cooling fan with lights. I would like 2GB of RAM or 4GB RAM preferably at 800MHZ or faster speed but without expensive price. The harddrive should be fast and have more than 200GB of memory. The disc drive has to be able to read all CD and DVD discs at fast speeds and burn

The 19" monitor is just going to be a spare, since I usually have my PC connected via HDMI to my plasma T.V. anyhow. (yeah it's bad for the T.V. but hella cool for gaming.) Any pros/cons to the build? All feedback is appreciated. -Ray

I'm looking to buy a Gaming PC from Craigslist. This is coming from someone with little to no knowledge of good PC specs. I don't know the difference between processors, video cards, and have been a console gamer all my life.

Making a gaming PC for battlefield 3 and skyrim.?
Heyo Yahoo peoples! Alrighty then, I've been psyched about the upcoming games that are Battlefield 3 and Skyrim! So psyched in fact that I've removed my reserves for the 360 copies and made them PC reserves. Now, what I want to ask all you gamers, brainiacs, awesome people is, is this build for a computer I'm going to order good enough to destroy these games with no sweat at all. I'm ordering a PC from ibuypower, I've heard great things from my brother and two of my cousins so I figured that they're a good company since those three are MAJOR gamers. Now, I unfortunately dont have bottomless pockets unfortunately so I'm putting a cap at $3500 since I DO have SOME money build up. So, take a look at what I have selected for this pc and give me your professional opinions. Tell me if I'm selecting something I dont need or could probably select something else to squeeze a bit more power out of this rig.

I need 3 suggestions for a badass liquid cooling kit for my gaming PC.?
Specifically, I'm looking at a cool, attractive solution to cooling. I'm using an Antec 1200 Full case and I'm seeking AMD cooling compatibility. The case is HUGE on the inside, so there should be plenty of room for any suggested kit. I want something that looks great and will inspire jealosy in my LAN buddies!

Is this a good budget gaming PC?
I don't have much money, so this will go towards just the tower of the PC, a budget of 500 GBP (776.62 USD). So anyway, here are the parts: PC Case - http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/components/cases/cases/novatech/nov-night.html nVidia GeForce GTX 460 Video card Novatech PowerStation Gaming 600W Silent ATX2 Power supply (Xfire/SLI) AMD Athlon II X4 630 Quad-Core Processor (2.8GHz) ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 - AMD 870 Motherboard (Xfire/SLI) Corsair CMV4GX3M2A1333C9 2 X 2GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ITB Hard drive, SATA Liteon IHAS324-32 24x Internal DVDRW Black Retail SATA Xilence Red Wing Quiet Fan X2 120mm All of this comes up to 459.29 Pounds (713.37 dollars) A friend has some spare parts, that I can use to further reduce the costs if I need then, I will look for optical drive, hard drive, RAM, Windows. Everything else I will buy! I will be playing games like Crysis, Black Ops, Bad Company 2, GRID, DiRT 2, games that use DX11. I will be playing in full HD resolution, later date if I need to overclock CPU, I will buy liquid cooling and overclock if necessary. Is this a good budget gaming pc for someone who is almost broke?

Heres a few questions i have and please answer with a bit of info and i have done some research so please bear with me and im asking please to answer the questions :) For the motherboard i hear that there's some problems with the north bridge overheating so can this be fixed? How is this build so far is it a good one? Is the motherboard overkill and what other boards would you recommend for future upgrades? If i crossfire the hd5770 will i get good performance? Is the case too small? ( cant really dish out lots a dollars for one right now) How is the cooling will it be sufficient if i OC to like 3.6 to.8 Im going to be hardcore gaming soon so when i get some real money ill maybe invest in liquid cooling and do some serious OCing and get a better case. I just want to get the major build parts out of the way. So can i commence on buying parts and please add any info you feel sufficient
Building gaming PC.... please help?
I want to build a gaming pc, i'm not a HUGE gamer, but i would like to run the sims 3 maxed out(which im sure wont be a problem) as well as the new star wars game, The Old Republic, when it's released. I dont plan on playing many 1st person shooters online except maybe Team Fortress 2 which i would like to play at a high resolution with very very little lag. I already have a SAMSUNG 2494HM Glossy Black 24" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor. So here's what i'm thinking about...........

I know very little about motherboards and RAM, my monitor has HDMI but i'm not sure if the motherboard I selected has it. Is there a huge difference in running my monitor DVI and HDMI?? Also the RAM i'm getting says 1600Mhz but i thought RAM ran at 667Mhz standard, do i have to change some type of setting or will it run at 1600Mhz automatically or am i an idiot? I would appreciate any help or advice. Is my video card good? Thank you for any feedback
Suggestions for liquid cooling system on Cooler master cosmos 1000?
I am making a gaming pc and I have most my parts planned out. Being a gaming pc I was interested in liquid cooling systems. The chassis is a Cooler Master Cosmos 1000. My focus for cooling is literally cooling, sound doesn't bother me so much. I have looked on information on how to install liquid cooling systems but additional information regarding installation wouldn't be unappreciated :)
Gaming Pc Specifications?
Is this a good pc for hardcore gaming, photo editing, ex. adobe lightroom what I am worried about, is that it has no liquid cooling, but is it needed. Here is the link: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/715064-REG/CyberpowerPC_GXI109_Gamer_Xtreme_i109_Desktop.html Tell me what is good about it what is bad, i know a little myself, but I want someone elses opinion. BTW is cyberpower good in quality, i heard their customer service can be a bit dissapointing, but what about the quality BTW i know the 12gigs of ram is overkill, but it is a built computer, I cannot order one different, i live overseas, and it is not posible to change the config. BTW does such a pc need liquid cooling

Building a ultimate gaming pc, any bottlenecks in this system ? What woulld you add/remove to make it better?
I'm putting together a gaming PC as a graduation present for myself for next year. Let me know what you think. I'm concerned with noise (maybe I should go with a liquid cooling). Also should I go the RAID 0 route or just get one 1 TB HDD. All comments welcome.

Can i do two monitors with one grafix card? thier is prolly lots i have missed but i am running out of characters. i have to type this here becuase i had 3 characters left on the above scetion. For a grafix card, if i can only do one I would liek 512 MB of grafix ram and if I can do two then a 512 and 128 or a 512 and 256 are good
Is this a good gaming pc setup?
So I've been planning on getting a gaming pc for sometime now and after many many MANY hang ups and snags it looks like I'm finally going to be getting one. Hussha! Anyway.... My ex seems to think that I'm completely incompetent when it comes to technology. So in an effort to double check myself I would like to ask other gamers/computer nerds (who aren't as cruel and bias as my ex is) to tell me their opinion on my choices. Please don't tell me something is wrong just because you don't like it. Please give me an actually real reason why you believe it's sub-par. This is what I don't want: "I hate AMD or ATI they suck! I like Intel or nVidia they rock." don't leave me hanging please, give me reasons why. I want to learn and get the best bang for my buck here... I left out some of the other components because I've either done enough research that I'm confident in my choice or because they aren't that important performance wise. Also if you want to you could really help me by listing what you think would make a better system... please keep it under $2600. ^_^ Thanks for your help!
