If you are able to build your pc then you could buy it from another store which has more offers and better components for your comp because cyberpowerpc isn't bad but you can find better components in other stores but some stores don't build your comp like cyberpowerpc and that's why I'm asking if you can build your new pc by yourself or someone you know.

Btw, any i7 cpu will play any new game with no problem and for graphic cards see this top 18

So, Brady, you've got $3000? And you're waiting for the Core i9?

There it is, thats my list of all the components i was planing to buy from newegg, now if u guys have any comments or advices in regards to my list please post it i will really appreciate it ... i mean idk if that's enough machine what i do really need is the liquid coolers the big ones i mean i wanna keep all my cpu cold as a mother ....ker :) and never worry about the tempeture ever again , so what do u think that processor is the lastest one or there is another one better than this one? and if u know a different website where u can find all the components cheaper !

This processor is the next step up, a lot more money for not much more performance, though. Do you intend on overclocking?

I will also send James a PM as he is the watercooling expert, I'm sure he'll be glad to comment on your watercooling setup.

To keep things simple, just watercool your GPU and CPU, this will give you significant gains. Unless you are planning on pumping a lot of volts into your chipset, watercooling your chipset is just for show.

The YouTube video you posted is made by someone I talk to in a chat room rather frequently, he produced some great tutorials on watercooling that I highly suggest you study prior to diving into watercooling. If you are going to watercool, you might want to take a look at either NCIXUS (I shop exclusively at their canadian site, so yes it is safe) or frozen CPU which is based in the USA and I have bought from them as well.

First thing is first, custom loops are always the best, but there are some good kits out there as well, swiftec makes one that I suggest you take a look into.
I'm going to link you to products on NCIXUS as its what I'm familiar with, but I am by no means stating that you have to buy from them.
http://www.ncixus.co...655-B/Swiftech/ -pump
http://www.ncixus.co...-QP-K/Swiftech/ - rad
http://www.ncixus.co...60-R2/Swiftech/ - GPU block, unless you are dead set on the GTX295, then a full cover block is your best bet.
http://www.ncixus.co...-34/Primochill/ - tubing
http://www.ncixus.co...-C01/Bitspower/ -barbs x6 (you'll want to replace the plastic ones on the GPU block, need it for the RAD and reservoir)
http://www.ncixus.co...a...1&sku=22498 x6 (for every barb, have one clamp to prevent leaks)
http://www.ncixus.co...a...1&sku=19860 (assuming you want to mount the RAD to the back of your case)
For a CPU block, you'd probably want something like the Swiftech GTZ and the Swiftech Micro res for your reservoir.
The way you'll want your loop to go is as follows (the direction of the arrow signifies the direction of the flow of the water.
Res->pump->rad->CPU->GPU->repeat

NCIX is getting a swiftech order in some time this week from what I have heard, otherwise stock is lacking. In addition, FrozenCPU's watercooling portion of the site isn't responding to me at the moment so I can't make a complete list for you.

As far as what liquid you ought to use in your build, please don't buy that coolmaster stuff or anything else. Just get distilled water. The tubing from Primochill has biocide built into the tubing, so it kills all the bacteria. If you want something that is non-conductive just in case you loop leaks, there isn't anything on the market that can guarantee this, so I wouldn't pay a premium for any of these liquids as I have heard about short circuits from just about everyone one of them. You may have noticed that I asked you to replace the plastic barbs. The reason for this is because they don't have any o-rings making a seal between the barb and component making them more susceptible to leaks. In addition to this, you have to fight with them to put tubing on them all the time and this doesn't mean that you have a better seal by any means. If you want to ensure a REALLY good seal between your barbs and tubing, it's always the best to use small tubing on large barbs. In other words, get 1/2" OD (outer diamater) barbs and 7/16" or 3/8" ID (inner diameter) tubing. Be warned though, you have to fight to get this onto your barbs and it will be nearly impossible to place over you pump. If you are absolutly sure that you want to watercool, please ask questions if you don't understand something. DO NOT proceed and guess because IT WILL lead to leaks which will fry components. In addition to this, while I'll do everything in my power to prevent a leak in your case, most watercooling users have lost hardware to short circuits due to leaks. I myself had one when I first started but was EXTREMELY lucky and didn't lose anything.

Things that I think you should change in your overall build.
Arctic Silver 5 I believe should be changed to MX-2. Arctic Silver 5 conducts electricity, MX-2 does not.
VelociRaptor are pointless at this point. I suggest you invest into a SSD for your OS/game installs. Intel X-25 would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask.
James
