  1. That system could play D3 and LoL on max settings easily, but if game performance is your highest priority, I'd suggest downgrading a few parts and using the money for a more powerful video card.

    Drop down to 4 gb ram, and use this processor if you live near a microcenter

    i3 2100

    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

    Coolermaster 212
