Wait for Ivey bridge its gonna kick serious ass. Also there will be new GPU by then and it will be in time for diablo(just jokes thatll be dec 2012.).. sigh (im getting a ivey bridge rig next year probly.) depends if diablo runs on ultra.
well his pc was fried so he probably can't wait that long, but I agree, if you dont need a new pc right away, waiting a little is probably not a bad idea. I myself is waiting for the next gen graphics cards.
I have no idea of the quality of that liquid cooling kit, maybe do a little more research on that? But find out if the warranty covers leaks and all that.
I like air cooling mostly because its easy to change. I built a 2500k pc a month ago, then changed from a hyper212+ heatsink to a nh-d14 after i saw the sale.
If you do movie encoding and programs that uses hyperthreading, a 2600k will be useful, if not then 2500k is well enough for your regular gaming needs. After overclocking, they are practically the same at doing regular stuff.
Not the 560, but the 560ti. I havent heard too much trouble about 560ti gtx, they are very popular.
lastly, just checking the case. The case doesnt have many fans, only 1 rear fan. You might want to get some extra fans and filters.
Hey there, just a couple of questions first
-what resolution of monitor do you have?
-have you thought about buying the components yourself and letting someone to build it?
-Are you planning to overclock the cpu?
Right now just from looking over it, I suggest you switching the 2600k to a 2500k, which saves you a 100 dollars, and then use that money to upgrade your 550ti selected to a 560ti 1gb
If you are not planning to overclock the cpu, a liquid cooling kit is probably unnecessary and causes more trouble, but then they dont have a good selection of air heatsinks
