Re: System Build Help $1000 Budget Water Cooled
Yes an i7 would be better, More frames per second is better, aka more fps...... BUT you can't afford an i7. A i7 is 300 plus just for a cpu, another 150 plus for a board.
The rest will be the same parts.
As for the water, unless youre pushing an overclock, a water loop isn't worth it. They make factory loops, Corsair h50/70 but they do just as well as a decent air cooler.
Don't mind helping you out.... but you might want to edit a post to add more info instead of triple posting.. The mods can get uppity about it.
Btw welcome to TF.
