    okay ty but is this a good set up? do i also have good memory / sdd / hdd and cpu cooler? or do i neeed 2 upgrade a little or checkout some other brand?
  3. Looks ok to me, however that H80 is a gimmick (as are most self enclosed "water cooling" loops). A decent HSF will net a lower temp (and fewer hassles), and usually runs a bit less. Unfortunately with the 2011 being a new socket, it will take a while for manufacturers to come up with a mounting solution. Noctua has one, and are generally very good coolers (very quiet too).

    $90 Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 6-Heatpipe CPU Heat Sink With Dual Noctua Fans - Socket 2011 (same price, but I bet that this still runs 4-10c cooler)

    (Frozen now ships globally btw)
    Everything else looks good, aside from one minor change to your OS. Switch to Win 7 64bit Pro (especially if you ever want to use more RAM, when and if the prices drop on the 8GB sticks).

    whats the diff between win 7? home/pro/profecinal or what even iknow ima b getting a 64bit but whats the diff in them 3?
  5. As far as I am aware of, Microsoft put a 16GB limit on win 7 home 64bit. A 192GB limit on Pro, and Ultimate is still higher (but useless, unless you want/need bitlocker, and there are better programs for free). Pro also has a few more options for programs (smoother with older games, from what I've seen).
