Taking just the components into consideration I will probably only get a grand but I also did some custom work on my PC. Custom rear radiator mount, fully sleeved MDPC power supply and ALL system cables. Custom made cables to remove any abundant wire lengths and LED fan switch.

Believe it or not, water cooling actually makes it harder to sell a PC, because most people just don't want to have to deal with the hassle.

Luckily this is a friend of mine and he loves the idea of water cooling, he has always wanted to make a water cooling loop but never really had someone to help him. He doesn't like reading all of the mixed reviews and opinions on water cooling on the internet.

He absolutely loves my PC, black tubing, bitspower matte black fittings, custom white LED fans, custom radiator mount, red/black/white MDPC-X sleeve color scheme. He is completely set on the computer, this system has been my pride and joy and have put a lot of hours into it and if I do upgrade I'll need to give up the clean look of my sleeving and all that good stuff.

That's why I'm kind of leaning towards NOT selling my PC but it is summer and I have a lot of free time so a new build over break might be good.

I'm probably going to end up selling it though, I really want to try out that 800D since it looks like an absolute monster on the inside but has a nice clean profile on the outside.

I think, I might be wrong, that the Haswell 22nm will be the next completely new arcitecture and that is what I'm waiting for. Basically all you really need is something strong enough to run a high end video card. That's where the performance comes from so I'm sticking with my QX9650 @ 4ghz water cooled set up until I read the reviews of Haswell. If that cpu isn't impressive enough then the Ivy Bridge and Sandy bridge cpu's will have dropped in price by then and I can always fall back on that.
