Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1200
Additional Comments: The wall that i'm running into at the moment is that I want a "silent" system (my current system is a jet engine) i'm willing to liquid cool but i'm not entirely sure of what parts I should get as i've heard all sorts of things about liquid cooling such as nickle water blocks flaking, corrosion, air bubbles in the line making the pump very loud, etc and being new to liquid cooling (this would be the first time) I don't want to ruin my system.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current system is about 4 years old and though I love her she just isn't the same woman I married years ago.
I assume you are buying two CPUs since you have 8k to drop and you picked a dual CPU board. But, how many GPUs? 3 of those?? Seems like a huge waste of money to me, but if you have it (and don't want to use it to better society) I guess go ahead and spend it.
