Drop down to 4 gb ram, and use this processor if you live near a microcenter $90 i3 2100 http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... or this processor if you don't $87 Intel Pentium G850 Sandy Bridge 2.9GHz LGA 1155 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Liquid cooling does you no good in that system. You could use the boxed cooler on any of the i3 or G series processors. If you want quieter cooling, use $30 Coolermaster 212 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... thegraciousgoat May 22, 2012 12:34:20 AM ok man thanks alot Related resources Are these desktop specs good for gaming ? - Forum Are these specs good for a casual gaming laptop ? - Forum Will these specs be good for a gaming pc?? - Forum Are these specs good for gaming ? - Forum Need help for a gaming computer! are these specs good ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
