Default Help me built a gaming compter....

Hi forum,

Im back and ready to built a gaming rig... I try to go over my last post were everyone helped me out on a built.. but since time has gone by and new parts.. I ask agian to help me out...( Sorry.. Im just not a compter guy.. this stuff makes my head spin the more I look into it...)

I need this for gaming and stocks.. I need to be able to run 3 or 4 screens with this built.. currently have 2 monitors..(samsung led 23")

I also want it to look good and have some bling to it.. also some water cooling if possible.. the rig will be on my desk due to my little dog..

I have set my built around $2000 +/- . and I will use this for possible 5 years+...



Any help would be great!!

IF you're going for anything above the 2500k, go for the 2600k, the 2700k is useless, just a (slightly) higher stock clock.

Sniperm, please don't double post. If you have something to add to your post within 24 hours, use the edit button at the bottom of your most recent post (looks like a pencil). And, no. 64bit is pretty much the standard now a days, and you must have it if you want to use all 8gb's of your RAM.

64-bit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
