Thinking of getting a new desktop to replace my 04 one specifically in order to keep up with Warcraft's constant graphics upgrades (they'll be redoing character models which I'm sure will kill my current computer). Also I live in an incredibly hot area which limited AC use so I'm going for this fan/liquid cooling system dealio to prevent any overheating and fps lag caused by it.

Anywho...thoughts? P.s: I have no experience building my own so please don't suggest it to me 8D ah ha.

7950 should have no trouble keeping up for a good while with the updates. Pretty strong card. Its a beautiful build overall. I would recommend you build instead of buy but you said with no experience you wouldn't do it :)

They are seriously overpriced components the LGA 2011 platform has 2 advantages 1 is you can run the 6 core CPUs which you are not (you are basically paying more for an older quad core) the other is if you want to run 3+ graphics card which you are not (and you can do just as well on LGA 1150 & 1155). If you get an LGA 1150 or 1155 based system you should save $500+ and get a newer & better CPU (and therefore a better overall PC for less). Also that liquid cooler is not as good as mid range air coolers that are half its price. Lastly I would not truast a power supplt described as "standard" with a PC costing that much get a good brand one like Antec Corsair or XFX.
