Newegg.com - MSI P7N Diamond LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard with SoundBlaster X-Fi Extreme Audio - Retail

but i need to change my ram

Also get this model 9600gt instead and save yourself 50 bucks

Newegg.com - PALiT NE/9600T+0152 GeForce 9600GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
i prefer to have a better warranty and only save 25 after rebate

You have to learn sometime I guess.. You really don't need it but I guess it IS afterall fun to experiment...I think that is worth more than money. and who knows... you may even need it in the future as it seems like you are finally learning the basics of building and manipulating the computer. - as we all are

Petra's Tech Shop does have very good items.. I think that is a nice setup.

Aspire would probably recommend that too. I hear petra is the best for WC.

If you are going to WC your card doesn't that do something to your warranty anyways? That Palit card is cheap and palit bought galaxy, that is clearly one of those galaxy 8800 gt fans on that 9600 gt. They provide better cooling, not that you would care since you said you would water cool your gpu.

i never said that i was gonna water cool the GPUs. I said how much can I overclock the CPU, ram, GPUs if I water cool them. If I see that it is worth the money I would buy it. If I see a big difference if th GPUs is water cool i will switch if not ill keep the fans in the GPUs.

No.. you are installing watercooling.. not keeping air cooling..

Here's a video that should help you:

Video: Water-cool your PC - Install a GPU waterblock - CNET Reviews

Are you meaning the fans.. on your computer? or the GPU's?

I mean if there is a way that i air cool GPUs with their fan and water cool other components like CPU.
