Unless you are going to cool your GFX I would just get a TEC for the cpu. Cheaper and easier to install.

Ultimately the 8800GTX will be cooled. I'm just not ready to spend $140 extra yet. When the price comes down I'll either buy Koolance's block or DD's. I won't sacrifice performance for ease of installation either

I've been hearing those TECs aren't that great. I just read a review of CoolIT's Freezone TEC module, and it didn't do any better, than the best air cooler. They put it against the Enzotech Ultra-X. So a very good water cooling kit, FTW.
