    I am actually not going for an SSD as it is a bit expensive for me. I'm also sticking with the DVD drive and no BD drive.

    What do you guys think now?

    Hi there

    I built a rig for photo editing and games a year ago and I did a ton of research, so here are my three cents.

    I would drop the liquid cooler for a decent air cooler. The cooler master 212 plus or Evo is very inexpensive. You can add a second Push/pull fan for a bit of added cooling if you are going to overclock a lot. My research led me to realize that all in one liquid cooling does not do much better than air cooling.

    If you go air watch the heat sink height on your ram as it may. Interfere with some fans.

    That should save you enough money to get an ssd on sale for the os and main programs. It makes the computer seem snappier in my opinion!

    There you have it! My 3 cents.

    I think I want a bigger tank!!

    pjaldave, if you already got your system then just ignore this thread.

    +1 to 250Gimp regarding liquid cooled system, drop it. Use the money for SSD. It will be well worth it.
