    Sorry, I have a hard time deciphering sloppy english. :dunno: If you read, you would see I have included a watercooling kit as the last item on my list. Aside from that, the Lian Li blows that antec out of the water.

    Good day, hope I've been helpful. :)

    The Sony VAIO is the bomb. Its the best PC notebook. Akin to an Apple.

    I heard that Swiftech makes decent internal cooling kits. You might be able to mix and match to create a decent cooling kit.

    $500 is kind of shooting a lot in my opinion. :dunno: You can get a San Diego core instead of the venice and you get an additional 512kb cache but it really won't help you much unless you're a programmer

    Athlon 64 FX. Hottest gamming chip out there. Oh yeah, and sony in general is proprietary garbage.

    You should get an opteron 146 or 144. They overclock to 2.7 and higher with reasonable temps.

    Most places like newegg are price gouging and all the others are just sold out.

    You should not spend $500 on the cpu - put that money into a graphics card. If you feel like splurging, buy a 7800gtx or something.

    Also, if you are thinking of adding water cooling. I don't think you should get an antec. They are not that great. You should get an ocz, pc&p or fortron.

    You make a good point about how much they are gouging for the FX processors. And I agree that if you are a gammer video card choice is key. I would certainly recommend getting an SLI board so you could piggy back them(video cards that is). The 6800GT has dropped significantly in price since the 7800GT is now on the market. Stick with an Asus Board, Nvidia Video Card, and Amd processor that fits your budget.:bigthumb:
