Hi. for sure a new complete rig i don't want to use none of my present rig as i will keep it as a network storage pc for home. that is why i was asking so much for cooling etc in fact i took my desiccion to go for liquid cooling. but i am ooking at the new video cards. and cup's. mainboard i guess i go for asus maximus for sure a modular psu and good ram i see what in march there will be out and buy accordingly i ust hope the new q9000 seres by intel come out that those times.

Well, since I am building a new system this year, I checked a whole bunch of those. I already have the case and a DVD writer waiting for the rest of the parts. So, come on Intel, release those processors.
