I have been out of the game for about 10 years and getting back into building my own system. Here is my setup, let me know what you think.

CD: I am using my cd/dvd burner from my old system, it works well and no reason to replace it

- I had a goal to keep it under $1300 and was able to do this after rebates (some had better rebates when ordered)
- I have not received all my parts yet so i suppose i could return anything but I read a lot of reviews before choosing and think I will be happy

    This would be the only change I would suggest , You don't need a water cooling setup for the 2500k cpu it will cool on air just fine , even if you overclock it to 4.5 ghz.

    The scary part is you can almost guess half of them
  5. i would ditch the cheap water cooling setup and go with a quality air cooler. other than that looks great! couldnt do much better for the price

    I too would vote in favor of a proper heat-sink instead of that closed loop. Other than that, its a very nice build for the budget.
  9. Get the 620 just installed mine works great 29 c at idle 48 on load works great ,quiet , looks good what else can you ask for .
