I am building a gaming computer. I want to be able to dual-log WoWarcraft and Crysis, etc. This is the build I am thinking of. Curious if liquid cooling is the best idea and if there are any gaping holes in this rig's build or any advice anyone has to make it better.

Thanks

Subtotal $2018.77 without shipping costs or MIR's deducted.

*Note: most or all the parts of the Cyberpower build has only limited warranty: i.e. some 1yr and others 3yrs and you have to go thru them for replacement. This is from pass experiance with them.

If you do decide to go with Cyberpower, I would suggest you change the Case to CoolerMaster Storm Sniper ($62.00) more , but has $40.00 MIR also. Get a 1tb backup HDD (83.00 more) and definately change CPU Cooler to Xigmatek Dark Knight-S1283V Gaming CPU Cooling Fan (saves you $10.00), Plus go with the Core i7 920 CPU and OC it yourself. OC'ing the Core i7 is really easy and that would save you another $140.00

Just redid your Build at Cyberpower using yours and my specs and it comes to $2100.

Hope this helps some.
