What are you wanting to do? Do you have this already? Purchasing it? We need more input.

If it is gaming my suggestion is to dump the 610 as that is the bottleneck on the system for gaming performance. I am confused as you have 2 video cards listed - the 610 and a generic. With that said you may need to get a different power supply to support the load.

What I don't understand is why get a liquid cooling system and a 610 with a 300 Watt PSU? A CPU setup for performance with everything else around it being mediocre, hard drive excluded.
