Hey whasup guys! My friend told me about digital storm since this is where he ordered his computer and he loves it. I just wanted to get some suggestions on this build and see what you guys think. I guess before I post the load configuration I want to let you guys know what I am doing with this pc.

I am a huge gamer and I mean big time gamer you name the game I probably have it. Huge multitasking with web browsing and lots of programs running. I am a huge fan on liquid cooling and want everything liquid cooled from cpu to graphics. so that being said here is my build


anybody know why I cant choose the option to liquid cool my graphics cards or do I have to call digital storm and tell them that I want this done? Any advice would be great. Thanks for your guys time. oh and happy 4th everybody!!

Hi Mark,

I made the necessary changes to your system to give what you said you wanted. I put in LC for the chip set but you probably don't need it. That is up to you.

You didn't say what resolution you will be playing at. That has a big impact on your configuration. This system is set up for a third GPU when you want or need it.
