awww...thxs you guys, i appriciates it, i even forgot about this thread in fact, well I did build one computer and it was good for my basic gaming needs, but then i sold it because i want to build a new one the computer i built b4 was an Intel here are configuration I had: Asus P5GD2-Premium, Intel Prescott 3.0 Ghz, 1 Gb RAM Corsair DDR2 4300, 2X36.7 GB Raptor Raid 0, Asus N6600 PCI-E, Case w/ 550 W PSU, and DVD RW and DVD ROM, I had the Zalman cooler and was able to over clock it to 3.8Ghz, I was really new to overclock by then so I didn't not know if it was stable at that or not. Anyways I sold that comp for $700, I dont know if thats a good deal or not....? Because when I bundled everything last year it was around $14XX or $15XX. Now I'm back with a tight budget of $1500....I'm still doing some researching and asking. Thanks for all your help guys.

I don't mean to turn this into a build log, but are you going to dump most of that into a phase change setup and then buy your parts?

Well by the time I'm done with my researching, I should be able to complete w/ a new Game Rig w/ phase change of course, I don't really play games much however, I like to do bench and overclocks more I like the idea of making something do more of what it is when it was first made. Thanks for your concern, I will post up my new system once I finish it....hopefully soon, not sure if I should wait until Windows Vista though....

If you take care of a phase change system it will last as long as a refrigerator which is 15-20 years as the others indicated. Just remember that a commercial phase change system is fragile, more so than watercooling so the proper precautions must be taken when manipulating things.

if you have 1500$ at the moment it would probably be a better idea for you to wait for Windows Vista and DirectX 10 video cards. also, all the new gen computers are coming out. who knows, by then you might even have 1600$ to spend.
