    Hate net gear! Ok so about to order, last question is, http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15402/ex-wat-207/XSPC_Raystorm_RX240_Extreme_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_w_RX240_Radiator_and_Free_Kill_Coil_Hot_item.html?tl=g30c321#blank Think the one you linked is better? I think I am going to go with your case, I just liked mine as it had a SD card slot reader, and I do use a SD card sometimes. Also no front usb 3.0 on the one you linked ..... Kind of hessitant for that reason. Would the cooler you linked, or this one fit in the NZT

    Gotcha, ok talked me into an I5..... Getting the3570k frees up about $150(not including the router, which won't be included in my spending limit of $1600.) The house knows we need a new one. It generally transcodes at least 6-8 hours a day, not all the time Blu ray quality, but generally anything from 30 minute TV shows to 480 movies. Keep in mind we have no cable, so if I'm gaming, then the wife or the kid are watching TV. One big reason I wanted an I7 is, that potentially, biggest case, which happens 2-3 times a week, is that I can be playing D3 or something else(not huge), while streaming to 2 different devices in the house(blu ray quality stuff) and thought I7 would just eat through this? Would the 3570 do the same? If so, can you help out with some water cooling then? I think that would be great investment as you said.

    Hmm can you recommend a awesome router? The only problem currently, I may have to my move router, but thats no big deal. Have a crappy net gear now anyway. Case, must of been removed from my cart some how..... It was gonna be a, NZXT SWITCH 810 Black CA-SW810-B1 Steel / Plastic ATX HYBIRD Full Tower Gaming Computer Case. Big and stable for long to come. You've kind of convinced me on this Wifi Go! If the stock OC is just as good, then I should just switch then. Would the one you originally recommended be the best? or the Gene? Will be re-using my video card for the time being. Only piece I can salvage off my old machine really. Going to wait a year or so, and then move up in GPU department. Figure what I have now is just as good as some low end cards, and runs the games I play right now. Can you recommend a decent power supply then as well? ---------- Yea, gaming is definitely #1 priority for the computer, over streaming. I figure though, if its semi top end gaming, it will stream fine. The problem with the hard drive is just out of convenience. We don't have cable, so we are downloading new shows daily, anywhere from 1-4 shows 3-4 nights a week, that we might watch either on the PS3 or the xbox(different rooms, different systems.) It would just be so much time tranferring and moving, when we can just fire up the systems and stream it. If I can get out for $1500 with an amazing gaming PC with no video card right now(GTX 260) for another year, then Im done for that build really.

    Edited my reply, I do have a Wireless G, not a N. My house isn't the greatest set up. I would think I would need to add a repeater or something to get it. However, my house is already pre-wired for Cat5(not gigabyte mind you, but 100M.) Guessing, I could get a good set up for N for a few hundred dollars?

    That is sweet. Do you have experience with it? It seems to all be wireless, which I use to use, but since I stream some 720/1020 sources. It always lagged out. I am wondering if this would be the same? However, I really love this wifi go! android app..... ----- Edit, K so bask story as well, this is my 2nd build fo rmyself, about 5th over all. This will be the last machine I will be able to buy for 3 - 5 years minimum. I have 15-1600 to spend on this. I basically want to get the most extreme PC(non-practical I can get.) I had got water cooling for the first, but didn't use it. Sucks I know, but I would love to try it but doesn't seem like I can budget for it. Here is what I am thinking right now... but still those are my goals, streaming and gaming. Know may be against a few rec's, but I am thinking I need the i7.... i7 3770k LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 (CMPSU-850HX) 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC ...

    Can you explain the cloud a bit more? I actually use Tversity to stream, so its not directly connected to any TV. How would I set this up? Also, not new to OC'ing, actually buying a new comp. I have a Zalman atm, and the prior to gen SB chip.

    If I wanted to go the custom water cooling build, such as if I wanted to set it up(up for a big project) what case and components would you recommend then?

    Will have to look up Data Cloud, not sure what this is at all! The HD you linked doesn't seem to come up, so could you give me a second link? My rig is mainly for low end gaming right now, but will be some MMO's on the future. The Media/Movies is just a secondary, so noise isn't as big of a deal since I stream through TVersity over my network to my PS3/Xbox.

    Ok so, my current comp is close to dying. I have a feeling it's because my Ex put a cup of drink on the top exhaust fan, and it seemed to sweat into the CPU. I have little stretches of coke a long the ram, mobo, and fans. My top exhaust fan stopped working. So far I have replaced the GPU and PSU to fix these. My GPU is Geforce GTX 260 currently, while my PSU is a 750 Watt, so debating if I just want to recycle those. Normally I play League of legends, D3, and maybe some CS something like that(no big games, YET, but do play some MMO's like rift and others occasionally, and it studdered.) Here are my components so far: Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W - I picked this processor, as this will be my main streaming PC, meaning it will need to transcode/encode movies almost 24/7, even while I am playing on it. I know the Hyper threading might not help with gaming, but does with this. ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - Ram to help with encoding(?) OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - SSD to help with any OS bottle necks EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 - Hesitant on this GPU, as its 420$, and I dont play to many games, but I want to be sort of ready for the next big MMO. Seagate Barracuda Green ST2000DL003 2TB 5900 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Place for all my torrents ... Thought about getting some water cooling to OC(always wanted it,just never got to get it.) Antec KUHLER H2O 920 Liquid Cooling System Perhaps this kit? I am not sure where I stand as far as cases, I need something good to fit water cooling if I get it. I want to be able to OC a bit, but if I am going to pay 100$ for a air cooler, figure 10$ to get water. Need help on case, and what you guys think. Comes to about 1800$ with monitor, and no case.... Help!!

    Geforce 5900

    think if i swapped harddrives it may work? would that cause video preformance?

    Geforce 5900

    Wow, Fear, use to play EQ, it runs fear just fine, you know lags before the big event, like ive heard from everyone tnhough. Use to run EQ fine with all options on though also. Wow did run fine and never noticed a problem before this HDD issue. Ive reinstalled my display drivers. Dont think this card is THAT weak, it was pretty hot back when i got it. i think the systems about 3 years old, so was the best card out when i got back
