So, I'm selling the system i have written down at the top to a guy i know without any case and I'm replacing all my components with the ones listed in the second list. i know that some components are the same, but I'm re-buying them (or the newer model, See my RAM, CPU) To help save on more "finance issues"

I Use my PC predominantly For gaming/Lanning and id like to get into the Modding/cooling scene.:cool:

Looks good :) The only change I would consider is dropping the quad core and possibly getting a faster dual core processor (E6850?) as most games won't take advantage of quad core. Unless you plan on doing video/dvd encoding, image editing or folding, you'll benefit more in games from the faster dual-core

What are you using as a hard drive? I take it you'll be overclocking seeing as you have water cooling?

Also I would have to check but depending on how long you plan to use it you may want to get a higher watt PSU.
