I am looking to build a new computer. I do not know much about it, but I built my last one (friend helped me get all the parts, I know how to put it together) this was around 3 years ago and I think its time to build a new one.

I have a budget of aprox (can be a little higher/lower) $1500.00, I want to use an ASUS mother board (i like their BIOS and ease of use) I need as much RAM as I can get and I would like an I7 processor as I need to run a lot of stuff simultaneously. I will be running 3 24" monitors off it, using several programs that will need to be spread across all the screens so I need it to be able to run smoothly between all 3 monitors (i hate jumpy multi-screen setups). I also will be using it for gaming, I play most of the latest games and would like it to work well for the next 3 or so years of graphics. I would like it to be liquid cooled because I like the way it looks lol (I also plan on O.C. the CPU as much as possible, mainly for bragging rights lol. current heatsink is way to loud, my friends liquid cooled pc is super quiet)

This is what I have together so far, as you can see I am missing MOBO and CPU.

ok is this a business computer or not? cause if it is then i would not mix fun with business and overclock. last thing you need is a 30 day stable computer blue screen. also 16gb of ram is not the max amount you can have 32gb is, they make 8gb sticks now. also you should look into a real water cooling setup.

this one should be at least 10 degrees cooler.

Thanks, I do not plan on over clocking a ton, maybe taking a 3.5ghz to 4.3 or so. I have a setup at work as well as a laptop, so it is alright to mix Business and Gaming. However, I do not want to get a blue screen for 30 days haha Looking into building a full liquid cooled system, could you show me what type you are talking about that would still be within my budget? (absolute max I want to spend is ~$1650. I already have Razer keyboard and Mouse and I already have my monitors, so this is strictly the computer budget.

I know that 16 is not max for RAM, I just figured that would be enough and its half as much as getting 32gb (gotta stay within budget)
