comp/brand names for pc parts, help
when building your own computer you are given may brands and parts to pick from but if you never buyed any thing from that comp./brand you ask your self is this comp./brand product good or reliable.
so what im asking to day is which comp./brand for each part is good-high quality and is reliable for a desk top pc.
NOTE:do not focus on price.
Example:cpu: intel or amd (i know all most all of you are going to pick intel)
the parts to pick brands for:
Fans & Heatsinks:for cpu
Fans :for case
liquid cooling:cpu only
liquid cooling:full system
CD / DVD Burners & Media

Motherboards - Asus
Computer Cases - Lian Li

Keyboards - don't care, but I use Microsoft ones (made by NMB for them)
Mice - I only use MS or Logitech
Memory: Mushkin! (yes, with an Exclamation mark)
Monitor: Dell IPS (I own 3xU2410's)

Soundcards - Creative X-Fi (but I hear great things about the Asus Xonar's)
Speakers - Logitech Z-5500's

Corsair and EVGA are often lauded for their exellent customer service (my Power Supply is a Corsair, and my videocard is an nVidia GTX 580 manufactured by EVGA). Kingston and G.Skill are both good RAM manufacturers (I use Corsair, but only because one of their kits went on sale when I was buying RAM; I was all set to go with G.Skill prior to that).
