Figured it would be a good idea to make an actual topic for this. So far I've gathered a couple ideas and componants.
I'm going to use this one for programming and gaming. Probably some more emphasis on gaming. I don't think I'll be ordering any parts or building this for a couple months. I'd like to see how the give away turns out, and how my savings look at the end of the summer. Far as a budget, roughly $1400. If I can get under, excellent.
Intel Core i7-2600K
OWC Mercury Electra 3G 240GB
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB
Asetek 570LX High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
4 in 1 PWM cable
Cooler Master Case
I'm certianly willing to trade parts out for better bang for my buck pieces. I'd like to try liquid cooling for the experience. I would be moving the computer from time to time, so its not going to sit in one place for very long. A smaller case would be great.
Thank you all in advance.
