I'm ordering my next PC from Cyberpowerpc.com , and just had a few questions. ..well actually a lot of questions, but if anyone could help me i'd be more than happy. you can IM me on AIM at Dinop19 if that would be easier.
I'm taking this system from cyberpower
and i'm configuring it as follows:
CASE : Hot New! X-Cruiser Mid-Tower 420W Case W/ WINDOW, MultiMeter Display & Control (Yellow Color)

how does all of this look? it comes out to $2165. Hopefully i'll get enough money by september.
is 500w enough to power all of that? i chose the:
Aspire/TurboCase 500Watt SEE-THROUGH COVER Dual Fan Aluminum Power Supply
now what about cooling? this is important. will all those fans included with the case, and the extra fans cool all those parts? i chose this option under cooling:
AMD ATHLON64 CERTIFIED CPU FAN & HEATSINK + 3 EXTRA CASE FANS
i can crank up the fan speed from the PSU also, if that may increase cooling?
or should i go with the liquid cooling unit that they have under cooling? i don't know anything about liquid cooling really, how to maintain it and whatnot. is that liquid cooling unit good? explain if you can.
also, with the professional wiring upgrade...is it worth it? I don't know what that would really do to increase performance...should i go with it?
and how is the motherboard? will it support everything? and will they build the entire thing? i don't want to open the box and plug it in and its not gonna work.
...lmao ok yeah that's a lot but i just want to be sure on all of this before I spend $2000 on a system. I'm spending so much because i want it to last me a while, and because i've been saving for quite a while...
