If you want to save some money, I'd say just go with the E6750 processor. It's almost as good, but for the price difference the E6750 is a much better, but if you don't care about saving money and want to go with the best then ya get an E6850.

Unless you are going to be overclocking you probably won't need the liquid cooling system.

You didn't mention the manufacturer of the RAM, if you are going to overclock the RAM you will want to use modules like Crucial's Ballistix line.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

That would depend on the quality of the components, the level of overclocking, and the quality of the cooling setup.

Looks as if your FSB on the mobo is 1333Mhz...you should get the fastest DDR2 ram for this computer. I think they may have some nice 1066Mhz or even 1200Mhz memory out there. Save some coin and get an factory OC'd 8800GT video card. This will offset the cost of the faster memory. I bought the E6850 and am wishing that I had saved the E6750 since both OC to about the same specs. If you arent into OCing then get the E6850. In all testing at stock speeds it ran faster than the E6750. I agree with the statement that you really do not need liquid cooling. Either of the afore mentioned video cards can be OC'd to run 25% faster and still remain very stable being air cooled. Just make sure you have sufficient airflow in your case.

I just built this system and am having fun being a human wrecking ball in ET:QW4.

Antec Earthpower 500w
Coolmaster CM690 case with 5 fans running (2 more on the way)
Intel DX38BT mobo
Corsair XMS 2x1GB DDR3 PC1333
EVGA 512Mb KO 8800GT video card
Western Digital 74GB 10,000rpm HD X2 Raid 5
Gigabyte CD/DVD RW

hope this helps
