it depends on what your goals of going water are? quite, performance or just better cooling. you could just cool your cpu that's what i tend too do because i change my gpu too often
simple rad ,block and pump and your rocking personal i like the swiftech 350/355 650/655 pumps there great and run 24/7 for years.

when it comes to blocks there a big choice if you change your parts a lot then get a universal block mount like the new hf or several ek blacks are good this way. jm2cents

im planning for this rig to last 2 years or so, im planning on oc'ing the gpu and cpu and want price/performance idea but am still willing to dish out extra it makes a good difference

well then your looking at some pretty penny the only thing i would go outta of my way to make sure it is a better brand would be the pump and block in my experience you can get really pricey rads. that being said i don't bother because were are talking about a very little difference here. jmo

this is DazMode, Watercooling enthusiasts store pretty much in house water cooling dude great stuff at good prices you can't go wrong

if you just need help picking parts OK but the rest is really up to you ( blocks,rads,pumps ) the rest is what you like fittings and the what not

well those are all great parts . the only thing i might change is the block ( not because it's not good the block you picked is great ) it's just it's mounting is limited to just amd
I might go with something that is universal

EK-Supreme HF Performance- Full Nickel - Universal CPU Block EK-Supreme HF Performance- Full Nickel - Universal CPU Block [EK-Supreme HF - Full Copper Nick] - $87.99 : DazMode, Watercooling enthusiasts store

DAZMODE Limited Edition EK Supreme (Classic) Full Nickel Block Limited Edition EK Supreme water block [EK-Supreme-Full Nickel] - $74.99 : DazMode, Watercooling enthusiasts store

it just gives you more upgrade room if you think you might need it. jmo as always. glad to help if i can

In first post you saying GTX480, but GPU link point to GTX275?

I recommend faster pump...4.0 or 655 with X-top.
