Hello ajtav007

I will be happy to put a list of parts together for you to check out, it will be based on a high end but reasonably priced build that will deliver the gaming performance that you require, I can then provide you an alternative list of parts that will cost a vast amount of financial outlay but not be worth the money that you would be paying for it, this to demonstrate that what is ideal may not need to cost an awful lot of cash.

Modern cases may be designed to allow for liquid cooling be they mid or full tower, personally I am not a fan of liquid cooling due to the risk of it leaking and blowing the whole system + it also involves additional internal maintenance which should be kept to a minimum, there is also the warranty implications, please see my canned text below;

Using an aftermarket cooler or cooling system, a very important thing I must make you aware of is that you do not need the additional heatsink and CPU fan/cooling system and if you did use one it you would void your CPU warranty both AMD and Intel are clear on this, see below;

AMD;
This Limited Warranty shall be null and void if the AMD microprocessor which is the subject of this Limited Warranty is used with any heatsink/fan other than the one provided herewith.

Intel;
damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing;

Your CPU will do what you require of it but keep in mind that it is way down in the rankings but the price that you would be paying for it reflects that http://www.cpubenchm...00K APU&id=1446

I can only offer you an explanation as to the specifications of the CPU which will hopefully help you to decide if it is what you are looking for;

The CPU has four cores and the average user even when gaming only uses 3 of the 4 cores so that is a +1.
The CPU is fast @ 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) +2
The CPU is inexpensive for the performance +3
Very good user reviews Here +4

Does that help any.
