The radiator, fans, reservoir and pump you can always reuse on new parts. Obviously you would have to buy new waterblocks for the cpu and graphic cards whenever you upgrade. But that's typically about $150, depending from what provider you get from. I always go with DD. No leaks. Great blocks. ($50 usually for the cpu and $100 for the graphics card). Definitely worth it if you live in a hot climate.
who do people have so much difficulty grasping the fact that a certain percentage of gtx280 are broken and that no amount of cooling will fix them!
