Default Best Cooling for under 200

Could anyone suggest a good cooling system for under this 200? (case and cooling sytem must come out to under 200 combined) Thanks for the help! Also, if anyone can suggest a good Athalon 64 heatsink fan that would be great. Thanks!

For cheap water cooling, I heard the kingwin aw1 was good and easy to install.
here: http://www.case-mod.com/store/produc...roducts_id=857
only $90

EDIT: There should be plenty of room for a case (pricewise)

This plain black case:

$20 shipped

-or-

Antec Super Lanboy
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=125653
$70 plus shipping

you can find many good cases and some will need a power supply
here (400 watt):
http://store.yahoo.com/outletpc/c0827.html
$13 plus shipping

Ok thanks, one last question. How would the water cooling system and the super lanboy stack up against this. http://www.sundialmicro.com/cgi-bin/.../ssttj06b.html Cooling performance wise. By the way, my computer will generate a bit of heat. (AMD 64 3400+ and 6800GT video card)

Well some people air cool the 64 3400+, i dob't know about the 6800GT.. But reviews have shown that that water cooling has lowered the temp a few celsius more than air. I do not know how that ase would be against the lanboy + liquid cooling, but air cooling can be very powerful if you know how to use it. Stuff like blowing out on the top (heat rises) and sucking in on the bottom matters a lot.

A case that has a jet type thing to is these:

I would go with the with the lanboy and the liquid. Before you make any choices, I would try to get some advice from other people.

Ok thanks, I will probably take your advice and go with the lanboy+liquid. 2 questions, however. Both are rather silly but bear with me please .
1) If I do choose Liquid cooling, will any of the intake fans still be used?
2) Can the liquid cooling system be installed AFTER all the components for the pc are in, or does it have to be installed before any of the parts are in the case.
Thanks for the help
