bah i wish i could spend the money i have right now but i cant, especially since it would just be for the GTX. . . maybe at my next major upgrade ill shell out some extra for water cooling, although i dont know when that will be. . . i just got the GTX (managed to snag it at 450, seemed too good to pass up) and my trusty x2 6000+ is serving me well. . . i guess ill save up a mini fortune to upgrade when either intel or amd come out with something that is an absolute must buy, although i hope the GTX wont be too outdated by then . . . unless there are some ultra cheap, easy and effective water cooling solutions out there, and that would be incorporating the price of the water block for the GTX :D

Well, maybe just ask Gav to put the Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultra + kit on sale again.....I snaged the full kit when it was only about $250. Seriously, it is an amazing kit, and very very fun and educational to build it yourself! Plus the satisfaction of a job well done! Or, you could probably get away with the H20-120 Compact kit. Very easy to install, and fool proof. It is about $139 at DirectCanada. Then you can add a MCW60 GPU block, about $40. And a little bit of extra tubing, no more than $10. There you go! Options for christmas list perhaps??

Haha, if the Apex ULTRA+ goes up on sale it would be impossible to pass up. There is a reason why I'm waiting for the next NCIX forum sale before I pick up my watercooling parts! And I dunno...would the H20-120 cool well enough for a CPU AND a GPU? Dunno about using a one fan setup for that

The H20-120 Compact should be fine for a AMD DualCore and a 8800GTX. It's the quads I would be worried about.
