Default Water?

K well heres the big thing. I dont have much money to play w/ so heres the deal. I want to get watercooling but not so sure which route to go. Would it be cheaper to build my own or just buy this http://www.frozencpu.com/ex-wat-50.html
If its cheaper to build my own then give me a list of parts (not links to parts but just general names IE Radiator, pump, CPU core etc)
Thanx.

the bigwater isn't that great. it's probabbly best if you DIY
you need:
reservoir
pump
radiator
waterblocks (CPU and/or video card)
tubing
thermal conductive fluid

asetek make some pretty good waterblocks, a reservoir you may even be able to make yourself

Er, make my own reservoir? Nah, im confident in myself w/ that stuff but if i screw it up that means water in my system. I saw Asetek on Frozencpu and didnt really know the name so i just went w/ what i know. Not to mention i have UV cathodes so the tubing would look cool. Would it be cheaper to get DangerDen parts though?
