Custom Computer and low price

By anubisgodd2006 ·
Hi, I'm new to building computers and understand what the basics are. I know a lot of you are way more experienced with comps than I am so I'm just aksing for hardware parts. What are the top hardware parts to put together for under a grand. I at least want it water-cooled. And which cooling system is the best installed for this price. I know it's not going to be the best system I want it to be, butu at least a decent one. I was on youtube.com and typed in "custom computers" and found some wicked computers people have. I just wanted to know if someone or anyone can help me out with this, or just give me an idea, because all those systems put mine to shame. I have an ASUS M2NPV-VM,AMD Sepron 3000+ at 1.6GHz, 512MB DDR2 667MHz RAM, 80GB HDD Master, 250GB HDD Slave, Freezer 64 Pro Heatsink, Custom Case w/lights everywhere, Lite-On DVDRW, and a 42 in 1 Card Reader/Writer. Does this sound good to ya'll? I want to know how I can overclock it to 2GHz without it restarting at boot. It's some sort of safety feature I'm glad I have. Just let me know. Thanks.

However as I build a lot of Servers with Liquid Cooling I can honestly say that the Zalman System is brilliant, but there are others which are cheaper. Not something that I'm concerned about as I want reliability not cheap prices. I spend about as much as you stated cost on just the cooling for a top Line Server.

However the Corsair HydroCool 200EX or the Asetek WaterChill Cooling Kit may be more in your price range. I don't know where you can buy them though. The HydroCool comes from Corsair so their web site is a starting point and the Asetek WaterChill comes from Asetek so you could start looking at the makers Web Site
