As the topic says im looking to build a gaming pc but im not looking for pc's that use liquid cooling mainly because im trying to figure out a price on how much it's gonna cost me just to build it but right now my budget is 2500$
 
here's the basic case spec's i'd like to look into
 
for the back i'd wanna add 2 80MM box fans for the top of the tower 120MM fan and for the front whatever gaming pc's use to suck air in.
 
ok now that the case is out the way lets start with the mother board i'd like to look at asues mother board for starters that can handle 4.0 GHZ of processing power.
 
ok here's a list of what im looking for in my gaming pc
 
3.6 GHZ of processing speed or 3.8 GHZ with no over clocking
16 GIG's of ram
4 GIG's of graphics from the graphics card
great heat sinks for keeping the pc cooled off
Operating system WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64 BIT EDITION
 
there's a pretty basic idea im pretty much looking for help on finding one or getting someone to custom build a pc for me.

Hi, based from your criteria, the budget you have can certainly fulfil it although most cases nowadays do not have dual 80mm fans on the back but do not worry as the pre-installed fans are more then sufficient in producing airflow in the case. Any motherboard can handle the clock speed of 4GHZ, it is more to do with the CPU itself whether your luck of the draw of getting a CPU that can overclock to that extent.

The CPU itself is already 4GHZ at it's stock frequency hence overclocking is not required. There was no Asus motherboard as a option although the Gigabyte motherboard chosen is a high end model and will do a fine job.

I bought a Maingear PC a few years ago, they are very good.  You are paying a premium though.  Are you going to be building this PC yourself or are you going to have someone else build it for you?

well I plain to let someone build a pc for me mostly and to be honest with you i'd see why you would recommend a pc like that for the only thing i don't really like about that build is that it's OVERCLOCKED and that's not what im looking for in a pc so if we can lets try to stick with non overclocked pc builds because i plain to use this pc for years.

 

and I almost forgot to mention im planing on just using air cooling alone with no liquid cooling at all.

The overclocking service (extra cost for that service) is not chosen as the "Intel® Turbo Boost Advanced Automatic Overclocking" is actually just the normal turbo boost feature of the CPU that dynamically increases it's frequency during certain tasks. New updated list:

Yeah, intel been doing it for a while, as i see it they sell processors as "3.5 ghz 3.9 Turbo" when in reality they are just 3.9 Ghz processors that throttle down when usage is low, there's no overclocking there, since they are working inside the manufacturer specs and were designed to run as such speed, now if you where to raise it to 4.5 now that would be overclocking

 

Either way if you are planning to get an Intel processor don't use the stock cooler, since it uses pre applied thermal paste it decreases in effectivity quickly, make sure to get a good termal paste and a good aftermarket cooler, remember, the lower temperatures it has to stand the more it'll live.

 

Also you can build pretty decent machines with half of that budget
