Water Cooling: Worth it?

Well, Everything for my new computer has came in, besides my case. All the specs are in my sign. I've been tossing the idea of watercooling around quite a bit. The case that I plan on getting is a Thermaltake Swing case. So basically, my main question is should I go ahead and drop the cash and get it watercooled or just stick with fans? If I should go watercooling, some links to some fairly cheap/efficent kits would be nice.

Thanks in advance,
-Matt

Depends, if you want OC, then go for it, if not, get a zalman and call it a day.

Yeah, water cooling is not really necessary unless you are a hardcore gamer who overclocks. If not, then air cooling will be more than adequate. Just make sure you have at least one intake and one exhaust fan and a good heatsink/fan on your processor (Zalman like g35 said) and you should be good to go.

If you do go watercooling, don't go Thermaltake, they don't perform as good as they look.
