This is the parts list of the computer that I hope to be building in the near future. Just asking to see what you guys think. Be as brutally honest as you can be.

CPU: Intel Q6600

RAM: G.SKILL (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB

Keyboard: Logitech Black USB Standard Deluxe

With shipping it should be about $70-80 more.

If you have any better ideas for parts then please post them it would be greatly appreciated. Might spend about $100 more or I may just keep the $100 so...

Tear it apart!

Good Mobo+ram.

What will you be using the computer for mainly? if your doing gaming i would get a e8400/8500 as they will produce better game results. Otherwise your q6600 will be great.

As for the LC kit, as others will probably tell you, building your own loop is better. A good 2x/3x 120mm Rad+some tubing+pump+block might run you more than that kit, but will be more effective than the kit.

Otherwise it looks to be a great build.

This computer is going to be used a lot for multi-tasking, CG stuff and some gaming. The main reasoning for the liquid cooling is just to keep it quieter than normal, I do not have the desire to do anything complex with it now. It is mainly to dip my toes into liquid cooling(pun intended).
