Budget?, how computer literate are you when it comes to hardware?

What case do you have?

to be brutally honest... you would be better off upgrading your video card before going watercooling.

agreed, he could get a lot better temps with a 8800gts g92, and it'd perform a lot better!

But remember keep in mind, you need to be decent with PC's because you can't afford screw-up's or you could fry up everything and break your good PC

check your case, some are built to compliment well with Water Cooling, but if not, consider getting a new one, or modding your case to support it well (a good one is the 3d Aurora )
