New Liquid-cooled Cube

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Please excuse me as I'm new to this whole forum thing, but after seeing numerous exceptional builds by many of you, I was inspired to start my new project.

What I have here is my parts list, that I've been scraping together over the last week or so. Please note that money is not an issue to me. I'll be getting a 2nd job just to pay for this new puppy.

As an addition, please also take note that the second graphics/video card, as well as the majority of RAM specified will come after the project is near completion.

So, without further ado, my parts list:
(Please feel free to share your own insight on the parts specified, and/or better alternatives. Please be professional.)

Intel Core i7-990x Extreme Edition

I would personally suggest you to change out your ram for something better. OCZ no longer makes the ram, they got out of that business. As for better ram suggestions go for G.skill Ripjaws, Corsair, or Mushkin.

The VisionTek ATI's I listed are much better, in my opinion.
But That's coming from a true ATI fan.
And they can support up to 5 displays as well.

I've been thinking about that actually.
I'm probably going to swap out the card reader for one with SSD.
