    well this will be my 1st every time building a computer
    i have already ordered all of the components for the pc i want hopefully they are all right (Y) lol
    once built im planning on building a watercooling system

    this system was designed for gaming/imaging/video editing/audio editing/CAD/ etc...

    my pc was built on a buget of around £600 but was streched a little

    this includes:

    the cooler masters silencio 550 case
    coolermaster gx650 psu
    coolermaster tx3 cpu cooler (just temp till water cooling is built)
    gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 motherboard
    intel i5 2500k HD3000 1155 sandybridge cpu
    western digital caviar green 1TB hdd
    eudar 16GB DDR3 1333mhz dual channel memory
    MSI GTX 560 Ti twin frozr 2/OC
    a tenium HDMI cable
    logitech wireless mouse and keyboard
    and finally Samsung SH-S222AB/RSMS DVD re-writer


    most of these will be delivered today then 1 or 2 other parts tomorrow :)

    im concidering building a water coolant kit for the cpu only but as this is my 1st build im learning as i go and have never seen a proper water cooling kit used or be fitted so will probably be asking quite a few questions and tips, using PTC's program pro desktop 8.0 i have drawn up a design for a drive bay resovior but have had a second idea and im going to design another 1 and will upload both shortly to see some of the comments :)

    i also want to overclock my cpu and gpu but just researching these possabilities at the moment:rock:
