Approximately, how much did this cost? Trying to get an approximation for my first build with some of the same parts as yours.

Well I spread the purchases out over a few weeks, but I would say around $1500 for the computer parts, and $300 for the watercooling parts. I just woke up so I may have missed something in my estimate lol. If you want I could put together a list of prices for everything.

Alright sure. For mine, I have been told to wait for the Intel i7 Ivy Bridge CPUs. Just trying to save up at the moment also. Looking at a $1500-$2000 price range for the gaming rig.

It's a bit late but I would replace your tubing with some clear UV tubing and use mayhem pastel blue coolant, it would match very closely with your mobo heat sinks and cable Sleeves. It would really make the color scheme look much better Imo :-)

Thanks for the suggestion! It's been a while since I've had a chance to tinker around with my PC, and I've been itching to do something. I just might try this smile.gif.
