Just don't push it to much.

Hey thanks for the anwser.
What do you mean with pushing it too much tho?

And do you think the PC will be alright with playing for many hours straight?

Why can you only get the one you mentioned?

You have a nasty rig, give it a pro cooler Jorundj listed the best options.

-but yea if you aren't overclocking or overclocking much anyway you're fine.

Nasty as in good or bad? ;D

And beacuse its a package where i can choose from 3 >_<.

And do you think it will be able to run for a long time without overheating.

And no i dont even know what overclocking is.

THanks again

Alright.. Seems everything is cleared up!

If I understand correctly you are buying this build as a "whole" right? You're not putting it together yourself.

If that's the case I have another tiny suggestion, that you don't necessarily have to follow, but just so you know.

In the future, when you feel like it, you could get another CPU cooler, possibly a better one, and install it yourself which isn't really hard to do with a bit of reading and asking. If you do that you can "overclock" which means, in a very crude way, making your computer go faster. It's mainly what this whole forum is about..

But aslong as you don't overclock your pc will be just fine and you will be able to run it as long as you wish.

its better than stock, but if you are building this and not buying it pre-built you might want to get the mugen 2 close to the same price but much better.

Nah no way. It COULD get hot on some games, if you have high ambient's to boot, but Intel's just take the heat like champs.

lol don't listen to anybody related to alienware.
8GB is more than enough for any game. even 4gb is enough. but it's always good to have breathing room, so 8gb is nice.
