Im thinking you mean CS4 as in adobe CS4? as in you dont have to render ... anything in CS4 on a cude video card, if perhaps it was a full 3d rendering in something like 3dsmax, c4d, or autocad, where openGL rendering really counts then ya the GTX 275 would be worth it. Or if you plan on playing alot of newer video games right away, otherwise its not going to make your CS4 experience all that much faster then the quad core already will.

If your looking at coolit, with a quad the freezone elite is probubly the only one you want to look at, the pure is pretty lacking in cooling power. You dont need watercooling unless you plan to do some heavy overclocking though ;)

Now cooling both CPU and GPU is going to be pricey, GPU waterblocks run around $150 CND, cpu waterblocks around $60-$70 or so, plus your rad will be atleast $50 for a dual which is going to be BARE minimum for this build, you also need tubing that matches all your fittings, barbs and fittings for every connection more then likely, a decent pump runs around $75, you can get fans pretty cheap if you grab some yate loons though. Personally I dont see much reason for watercooling this rig unless you plan to overclock your videocard and CPU heavily, otherwise its going to do perfectly fine on air, ive seen 9550s OCed to 4ghz on air plenty...

:help:Okay having a delima with myself about watercooling

Just pricing out the setup, has scared me a little, didint relize how much it was going to cost, i had a budget in mind (so did the ball and chain) and well this has surpassed her budget.

here is the list as it sits now

1x EK-ANTI-CyclonEK-ANTI-Cyclon
1x TFC Xchanger - High Performance Triple Radiator 360
1x EK-D5 X-TOP - Acetal G1/4 Rev.2EK-D5 X-TOP - Acetal G1/4 Rev.2
1x Swiftech MCP 655-01 Water Pump with speed controller
1x EK-Multioption RES 150EK-Multioption RES 150
3x GELID Wing 12 1500 RPM UV Green 120MM 64.3CFM
2x K - Coolant Fill Port / Drain ValveK - Coolant Fill Port / Drain Valve

1x Feser One - Cooling Fluid - UV ACID GREEN
1x EK-Supreme-PlexiEK-Supreme-Plexi
1x EK Supreme Backplate CPU LGA755

now i feel bad as well, cause i had some really great help with this list, he spent a couple hours with me explaining everything and making sure i got what i was looking for in my mind.

I just don't know what to do

Okay got all the computer parts (except the watercooling, still waiting) But I FORGOT SOMETHING grrrrrr

I though i had a 1000w power supply here, but looks like i might have sold it awhile ago, damn...

I have a HX520w is that going to be enough, or do i need to run out a grab a 750/850? (dont really want to if i don't HAVE to)
