Default Water cooling for about AU$250

When I get paid, I'll be able to afford watercooling for my CPU and GPU. Now, what would be a good solution for about AU$250?
I can afford more than AU$250, but I want to get at least somewhat close to that.

CPU: socket 754 - currently a Sempron 2800+ at 2240MHZ
GPU: 7950 GT (exactly the same mounting as 7900 GT)

my case is a Lian-Li PC-V1000
I have 4 x 5.25" drive bays free (if I take out the floppy drive bezel)

I'll probabbly be getting the parts separately (not a kit)

I'll also probabbly be getting the parts from www.pccasegear.com.au (it's quite close to where I live, so I won't have to pay shipping)

I was thinking something like this:
Thermaltake Aquabay M5 (pump, and reservoir?)

tubing:
http://pccasegear.com.au/category300_1.htm
what and how much would I need?

Thermaltake Aqua Brazing W1 (CPU block)

Zalman ZM-GWB2 (GPU block)
should that fit a 7900/7950 GT?

Thermaltake Aquabay M2 (radiator)

There are several problems with what you have suggested, namely varying fittings sizes between components. I would much reccomend buying parts form this store, they will ship worldwide at cost, and you wont be able to beat their prices. For a kit for you, 250 aud = about 200 usd Heres what i came up with.

Thanks, I'll have a good look at this.
being international, I hope the shipping doesn't cost too much though.

Well, the whole shebang should only weigh about 10 lbs, so if you want, just calculate shipping from 94539

And it should be somewhere in that range. Guys there are really awesome.

their shipping calculator only works in the US. I have just emailed them asking about shipping costs though.

I also posted their phone number, so feel free to call them.

There it is again, like I said before, they will ship out of country even though they dont say it anywhere.

And when you do order, mention me, cuz they personally know me

so all total you'd be paying about 220 usd, all in all, not half bad.

And considering the parts you had selected previously totaled 217 usd i think your getting a lot more bang for your buck.

It does not cost you anything to use it.

Sign up, link it to a bank account and transfer funds to your hearts delight
