I'm looking for some advice for my new computer. I want a high performance computer but stability is more important to me so keep in mind that the technology used must be ready for a high stress use and remain perfect at all time.
Any recommandations of manufacturer or a specific piece is gladly welcome
From the many posts and reviews that i've read so far water cooling bring the performance in term of overall computer heat and lower your computer noise by alot , mute or almost from what i'm being told but i have no experience when in come of water cooling. Most sellers say that it is not risky(water drop in your computer) to have that in your computer but they recommand the installation by one of their "tech guy" so what do you think , do they just recommand that for the money or is it fairly risky to install it yourself at home? If installed by a "tech guy" are the new models really safe or is a risk remain?
Dual core VS. Quad core
From what I've read a good dual core can do as good as most quad core for half the price but since i'm not too sure of the reference i got so far some questions remain.
Is it really worth(money vs performance) to buy a quad core? Are most of the applications and games i will run fully take advantage of a quad core over a dual core? what about the use of a quad core in the upcoming applications and games?
If some of you want to give a shot and try to build me a computer feel free to do so , i will take the time to study each of those. Here's some guide line and requirements base on what i know and what i want.
Money: $1500 (U.S Dollar)
Video card: nvidia/xfx/evga manufacturer
cpu: intel manufacturer
ram: 4Gig min. / 8gig max. - dual channel
psu: enermax or antec manufacturer
hard drive: seagate manufacturer
Note that all this is subject to change if you bring me a good reason why i should not go for a certain piece or brandname.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read and hopefully answer my questions.
