Default moving to Water cooling + new build

Hey guys,

Looking at either heavily upgrading my setup or just starting from scratch. I'm looking at possibly buying the thermaltake chaser mk1 as my case - Thermaltakeusa**Chassis**Chaser MK-I**Chaser MK-1 : Chaser MK-1 VN300M1W2N

My monitor is a 32" toshiba 1080p TV and I will be possibly running a GTX 580 on it.

Where the questions come in is whether or not I should build my rig from scratch or not. I am currently researching water cooling options and will probably need some help in deciding the best components to get, so any feedback would be great.

The deciding factor will be whether or not my q6600 processor will bottleneck the 580gtx on a 1080p monitor. Also I only have 6 gigs of DDr2 memory. So things I need to look into is processors, motherboards, DDr3 and especially water cooling. I'm starting my research tonight so feel free to point me in the direction of components you think stand out!

When this is done I will include pics and benchmarks
