The NCIX kit is a better value, but I would go for a 2X120mm radiator- either a HW labs black ice extreme or a thermochill pa120.2

this is an awesome kit that comes with a pa120.2, but it costs 299

Definitely go for the kit Babr suggested, and simply add a GPU block. It is a very, very good kit.

Then forget about cooling the GPU.

yeah- I'd say the same. Either just use a single rad for your CPU, or wait until you can afford a double rad along with decent blocks and pump rather than having to upgrade components when you decide you want good performance for cooling both the GPU and CPU.

Default be smart

jasonmoreau i wouldn't buy a kit there is always something just not up to par in most kits. Build ur own it would not cost very much more and you get everything you want . Do the reviews and don't buy cheap tubing, tygon is the best and one of the best pumps is swiftech 655 come to think of it swiftech makes just about the best in all water cooling products just be careful certain blocks are made for single and dual core chips yes it does make a difference. Also go with the half inch setup. The 655 puts out 1200 liters per/hr and there are 2 versions one does not allow you to set the pump speed the other does. Again swiftech makes the best, oh stay away from the clear tops as they will break sooner or later, go with full copper blocks not good to mix aluminum and copper. Note to newbies always check many reviews don't just jump word of experience! good luck
