Additional Comments: Mainly what I'm doing is going to be processor intensive on the KO, Will be running multiple accounts. I want to play around with water cooling too love how some of the rigs look and it just seems fun but I'm a novice at it, Ive read the articles here on tom's I feel I have a decent understanding but would like to hear from the pros.
Ram noted i'll change that out. Still don't want a fan cooler. Rather stick to liquid cooling. Also thank you for the psu advice will defiantly switch that as well. That mobo / ssd combo is a good price too. Might have to consider swapping that out.
Anyone else got advice tips hints? Anything? Especially with water cooling!! Anything i should change let me know.
COOLER: Corsair H100 Liquid Cooler *Defiantly open for suggestions here - Not exactly the coolest looking cooler mainly I choose it because I know it will fit and it looks very easy to install* http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] r%20cooler
GPU: GTX 550 Ti Superclocked * I know I want Nvidia.. But for what I'm doing is it even worth it to get a better card? http://www.microcenter.com/single_ [...] id=0363754
On a gaming system the GPU is the most important part of the build and you don't want to skimp or compromise. I'd actually recommend dropping the SSD for a 500GB mechanical HD and dropping your cooler to a Hyper 212 Evo - you'll save about $150 which you can use to upgrade your GPU to a Radeon 7850 or a GTX 560 / 570. That would be a much wiser investment.
