My System Specs

Default Help me spec out some WC Parts

So, parts wise, I have my build more or less where I want it. However, I have a hankering to tinker some more. Which means putting everything under water. For the first time!

Specs for the system I want to WC are as follows:

AMD PhenomII 1055T
Powercolour 7950 PCS+
Coolermaster 690II Advanced

I'm interested in doing a 'budget' WC project at first. So basically, trying to get everything in at the lowest cost possible. Right now, I'm not really interested in 'bling' parts. So, no outrageously expensive but supercool gold plated parts. This is a budget, first time Watercooled build so that I can get my feet wet doing it (no pun intended). The super bling WC build will come later!

In my loop, I would like to include the CPU and the GPU.

I should have room for a 2x120 Rad in a PUSH configuration (pushing Up OUT of the case) at the TOP of the case, and a 2x120 Rad in either Push, Pull or Push/Pull configuration at the BOTTOM of the case.

OR, if I want to keep everything nice and clean, I could use 1x 2x120 Rad at the Top of the case and 1x 1x120 Rad pushing out the BACK of the case.

So, recommend me some nice, budget watercooling parts. Go!
