I just got one of the SMods to sticky a guide from xtremesystems based on water cooling. It's at the top of these forums, you should read that 'Introductory Guide to Water Cooling' and you can get a better idea.

yay!

now erase that budget geek from your title

well basically you wanna wait until like july before you ask for what parts you get, since technology moves real fast

and if u could get more money it would be cool to try a prometia, although i don't know how loud they are

You still need to buy the appropriate blocks for that system, and 1/4" tubing is tiny. =/
