That CPU has the horsepower for encoding hence the dual core.

Water cooling? ... bacause I need SILENT, no sound ...

Very nice setup, but i must emphasize 1GB of RAM with that CPU, the dual core feeds off more RAM, and 1GB is almost a minimum for dual core processors.

The last time I checked... the pro media klipshc's were owned by the z5500e's. MB quart? never heard of them... I have the z5500e and I also an infiniti set up downstairs and my z's out-blast the infitnti's, which are also really nice.

No, the Klipsch Pro Media Ultras were beaten by a THIN margin, nothing to really talk about though.

No, I am not looking for "real" sound.

I think I'm better with Logitech's 5.1 530's.


[edit] as long as there is a built in amp so they can be loud enough to hear, I think I'm okay.

Also I was thinking about headsets, since I'm a fan about using heatsets at night, say I did is there like a way I can amp them, since sometimes on my PC the sound (even on full) is not loud enough.

Good choice on a budget.
