The title says it all I need a gaming computer able to play games like battle field, call of duty games, skyim , and world of war craft but I also want it to be fast on the web and water cooled.

It will be over clocked probably most of the time and I want it for about 1500 dollars but I could go up a little Ty in advance.

Well, if you must buy a pre made, then i would suggest looking into the ibuypower paladin. http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/2013_Paladin_Dr._I

It has everything you requested, great graphics, liquid cooling, and what else is cool is that with ibuypower you can purchase intel performance tweak protection, which allows you to be covered under warranty even if you break your system while overclocking.

Why go premade? Building a computer yourself isn't massively hard, and even if you're unwilling/unable to do it yourself, you could still save money by buying the parts online and paying a custom assembler, rather than buying some atrociously inefficient premade.

I wouldn't advise it. It has a much more powerful CPU than would be of any use in gaming.

Again, even if you don't want to build, there are better options than an online custom store. I strongly suggest looking around your local computer stores, and seeing if they offer custom assembly. If so, you can order the parts from online stores like Newegg, then have them build it for you. You don't need to assemble it, and you end up with a more optimized and efficient machine.
