mostly high end gaming and the usual daily stuff i'd use my laptop for, i mostly want something that can play new generation games on high settings since this laptop can't handle it anymore what kind of cooler would you suggest that would fit better, i've read that the better ones are corsair made

Personally I'm going with the Corsair H100 watercooler for mine

I don't know anything about water coolers, do you need to switch out the water all the time and such, and how does it go into the tower?

Superevil, That water cooler idea is interesting. How much better is it than conventional air. And are there any other advantages other than more cooling.

@Pikan90,

You don't need a sound card. MB has excellent Sound.

To be honest I don't know too much about the H100, I got it for free from Intel and have yet to install it.
