Default Water Cooling (NOOB!)

I'm looking around at water cooling solutions for the rig in my sig....and I don't see much
in the way of complete kits (note: I'm buying a GTX480 that I want water cooled as well...I understand that would probably have to be a seperate block purchased as most kits wouldn't have it yet)...

Anyone have a good 'kit' (COMPLETE) to buy? I am getting confused looking at all the blocks, bushings, gaskets, back plates..resevoirs, pumps....fans...

*gah!*..

Don't buy a kit just read up and build your own. It's really not that hard - all you need are some blocks, a pump, a res, a radiator, some fittings and of course some tubing.

Just post your budget and I'm sure some of us here would be able to help you out.

If you have a fishtank in your house DO NOT tank the pump out of it and try to use it. It will make the tank stink and kill the fish. Luckily the grand kids are not going to be here this weekend so I can go find some of the same looking ones...

+1 on the building your own...

For pumps, water blocks, radiators, and hoses - I would go with danger den.

For reservoirs, thats more personal taste and where you could mount it.
