I was fed up with my old computer (used to be good, but then the gpu started burning out) so I finally decided to build an entirely new one. I'm trying to get a computer that will be able to play games for about 5-8 years running at minimum graphics at about 30 fps or so. I have most of the parts done right here (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/klXI) and I'm looking to only spend around 100 more for the other items. I'm gonna try to order all the parts on this upcoming black Friday to see if I can save anything. Please leave tips and suggestions.
Thanks! :tvhappy:

PS: Just wondering is it worth it to make an aquarium pc or will the price/cooling not be sufficient enough?Posted Image

Looks good, I'd recommend 1600mhz ram or at the very least 1333mhz
What motherboard are you looking to get?
I think you'd need mineral oil or something for the cooling liquid

You should really get a larger 3.5" hard drive as it will perform better then a 2.5" and it would speed up the loading times in games like BF3.

@diggi Thanks, I updated the ram a bit. I already know how to make the aquarium, I just want to know if it would be worth it to cool it using that method; it would eliminate my needs to buy a case+fan online. Also I need help on finding a compatible motherboard that will have both enough pci slots as well as at least 4 usb ports (at least 1 usb 2.0 and the rest 3.0). Thanks again for the help.

@killerx525 Would you say it would be worth it to pay the extra 10 bucks overtime or should I stick with the 2.5"? (Trying to stay under the $1100 level) Again, thanks.

BTW: I was wondering how easy it would be to transport an aquarium pc as I plan to take it to college.

EDIT: Forgot to add the link so far (added ram, sound card, and new hd) http://pcpartpicker.com/p/knLF

The new list looks a lot better but i'd ditch the sound card as it is not needed. Transportation would be a pain as it is far more fragile, a standard mix-atx case would be fine. This motherboard would fit nicely in your budget.

Alright thanks for the info, now I just need tips on cooling; should I get a liquid cooled-system or just go for an aftermarket fan. I've decided to just forget the aquarium and go for a case. By any chance do you happen to know how many khz this motherboard has? I want good sound quality if I remove the other card. Here's the updated list, I changed a few parts to get the most power for the price (the site just updated). http://pcpartpicker.com/p/krPi

You could use the stock cooler that is included with the CPU to keep within the budget. I'm not to sure how many khz the onboard audio has but i suppose there are better sound cards for around $30 range like this. If your not going overclock, you can save a few dollars by going with the non-k 3570.

I doubt that sound card will be any better than your onboard sound.
If you are close to a microcenter you can get great deals on Mobo-cpu combo's (or get an i5 2500k instead) and pick up a better sound card with the difference. If you'll be overclocking then you can get a coolermaster Hyper 212 for cheap but make sure it'll fit in your case. If not just stick with the boxed cooler.

Hey sorry for not responding for so long (sickness+laptop died and power cord tore ><) but after researching it, I decided to hold off on getting a sound card for now and settling with the onboard sound. I figure once I get it built then I can save for a high-performance card. Also @diggi yes I am going to overclock so I used the fan you suggested. Here is the almost completed build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kOwy
BTW: What do you think the best time to buy this build (Black Friday coming up)?

I'd change the power supply to something around 600W because when your overclocking the power consumption is going to be a lot higher.

Alright changed it, I wouldn't have thought it would go that high but it turns out to be cheaper than my other one so :wink:

You should really change the power supply to brands like Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, Silverstone and Enermax.

Alright here's the new list, also I changed the case to a larger one so I could have a bit of free space to fit the fan. Also thanks for helping me so far with this build.
