I'd would up the wattage on your psu to 800 at the least just to be safe.

Also, with this build (if you are really going to go through with it) i'd get a corsair water cooler. you want to go with the best for this kind of build. Since this build is not at all budget minded, go with an h110i gtx. I have one and it works like a charm.

I edited it to the cpu cooler you suggested
But With water cooling what water should I use just standard distilla water with no minerals and such in it or do the minerals and stuff not matter

Yeah i was fed up with having to play on a potato that took 4 minutes just to exit TF2 and could not run any major games. -_- Save money form your birthday and Christmas and put it into a savings account and don't touch it. and getting a part time job will really speed things up. I Wanted to build a gaming pc for 3 years before i actually had the funds to do it. What was even harder for me was paying 150$ every month form last summer for a trip to hawaii until now, while also buying parts for my current gaming rig. Depending on what job you get be prepared to work hard. Lastly i must confess that yeah my parents did help out a little with my build, but i bought 80% of the parts with my own money.

Also, about your part list, you don't have to go 1070 sli. a single 1070 is actually overkill for 1080p gaming in most cases.

And for the water question, don't worry about minerals and stuff, corsair puts "special" stuff into their coolers to prevent any stuff growing.

I have a savings account with around 600 in it rn so that helps alot plus the 700 from the b-day and xmas combined so thats 1300 so removing sli really helps droping the price to 1700 or so meaning i would possibly be able to get it by xmas with the little bit of summer left Sadly Im still to young to get a job im only 12 my only option is to work with my dad at $5 an hour ;-;

Yeah dude sucks you can't get a job for about another 4 years. But that money form your dad is tax free though. Just keep focused on the PC and don't cave. reward yourself every now and then but no big shopping trips. and if you work weekends for 8 hours or so or for a few hours after school, you should have enough money to get the PC. Also, don't try and build it yourself unless you truly think you can get it up and running when you get all of your parts. Take it to a PC shop where they can build it for you for a fee.

Actually the watercoolers you select in PcPartPicker are known as "all-in-one" units. It's a prefilled loop, and is not meant to be disassembled. All you do is mount the CPU block on top of the CPU, then mount the radiator to your case.

Benefits of watercooling:
- Cooler Temperatures for the component being cooled.
- More effective at getting heat out of the case itself.

Cons:
- Chance of leaking.
- Pump whirring noise. Included fans are usually quite loud. Most watercoolers are actually louder than air coolers.

I would not recommend getting a watercooler that's any smaller than 240mm, though. 120/140mm watercoolers are quite expensive for the performance they give. A simple Hyper 212 or Cryorig M9i can match the performance of such watercoolers at half the price.

------------------------------------------

That computer you've picked out is quite pricy, especially considering your age! If you're able to save up a full $2k for a build like this, then props to you. I personally can't stand to wait that long. You could still get amazing gaming performance at a much lower budget. Some examples would be to drop from an i7 to an i5. Grab a single GTX 1070 instead of two. A single 1070 is plenty for 1080p gaming. You can then dial back your power supply since you only have one graphics card. Drop a 16GB kit of RAM. Oh yeah, also don't forget to add a SSD that's at least 240GBs. Fast storage = fast boots & responsive computer.

I have wanted a good pc for so long and like I said Im being a spoiled brat and not sharing xD
Anyways with $1300 by christmas that only leaves me $400 short for this build

EDIT* Turns out changing from water to air cooling bumps this to around 1500 leaving me only 200 short so getting this pc is very possilble!
