@accalia I'm not one of my alts, if that's what you're implying
Yes, I am single. Why did you ask, and which eye would you prefer to be blacked for asking?

RE: Building a new gaming pc
@Polygeekery IMHO you don't need it. I can barely hear my PC when running games.
You are playing games that make noise. I am loading down 8 cores in a quiet room. I need it.
now now..... do we have to have the wants versus needs talk again?
though for serious, an aio is a good move as a bridge between a custom water loop. most of the performance, about 70% less hassle.
important thing to know about the AIOs though is most aren't designed to be refilled and will lose their water slowly over time (evaporation bitches. also i'm talking on the order of years and years of time) so it's a good idea to arrange the AIO so that it's horizontal and above the CPU or that the return from the rad is the low point on the rad. that way when you lose enough that vapor bubbles become a thing you don't suck them into your pump and cause cavatation damage. You don't want cavatation damage.
that's probably being more paranoid than necessary as you're more likely to decomission the system before it's an issue but..... it doesn't hurt to be extra safe.
RE: Building a new gaming pc
Anyway, I want to buy a new PC, and I haven't been looking into the hardware market for some time. Any recommendations for what to pick up? Is the new AMD chip any good or should I stick with Intel? AMD or nVidia for the GPU? That kind of stuff.
unless you have special needs i recommend looking up what your budget is on logical increments and buying what it recommends for your price range.
Looking to get a new monitor too. Should I get a single big 4K thing, or multiple smaller monitors? I feel up to three smaller 24" monitors would be better for multitasking, keeping code, documentation, mails and such in different screens over keeping it all tiled in one huge screen, but I've never had a huge, ultra high-def monitor before.
I prefer 2 1440p monitors myself. i have them in 16:9 and 21:9 aspect ratios and loving it
Also, does anybody have experience with water cooling? Worth it to try it out? I'll be assembling it all, not having it made to order or anything like that.
it'll add a lot to your price tag, but it gives you much better thermal dissipation than air so it lets you run quieter or push the overclocking envelope harder. I don't recommend it for any but the most enthusiast of enthusiast builds or for someone who wants the quietest possible PC. but if you want it, can afford it, and are willing to put up with the hassle of building it yourself, then go for it dood, go for it.
