Given the cpu in your sig. then water-cooling the cpu would be a good idea and might pull your NB temps down at the same time (although 500FSB is high).

Its gets tricky with the 4870-they need really good cooling on the memory and VRM's something only a FC block will do well as far as Ive read (unless you mod the stock cooler).

With the NB, CPU, and FC block you'll need something like an MCR320 with high-flow fans if your on a budget. I have an extra MCP655 if you need one for around 50 shipped. Add in the tubing, barbs, solution I'd say ~300 all in will do it. You'll not regret spending the money. Theres some WC stuff for sale here too- you might be able to save some money that way.
