How much does an entry level watercooling system cost? I'm not looking into overclock a whole lot, its just that with the way my desk it, where its at, the ventilation in the room, and the 8800GTX, it runs pretty hot, and I want to be able to SLI another 8800 in there sometime in the future.

You can get some cheap shit for 150-200. But if you want a good system you're looking at 400-500 depending on what blocks you need/want and what not.

Things you need for water cooling a pc..

- water pump ($80 for a decent one)
- radiator ($20 to $150 depending on size and quality)
- silent fans for radiator ($10 each usually)
- cpu water block ($50+)
- gpu water block ($70 to $150)
- chipset water blocks ($30+)
- water temp probe & flow meter ($20 to $40)
- tubing ($20 or so depending on quality)
- fittings ($20 or so depending on how many and what kind you need)

Some of the blocks are optional.. you can do whatever. But the more wattage you're covering, the more radiator BTU dissipation you'll need.

No pics, it's nothing to look at.

Athlon 64X2 6000 3.0gb
4gb RAM
GeForce 880GTS
15kRPM 37gb SCSI HD
Vista Ultimate X64 edition

I'm not really into any new PC games, I think the Battlefield series is still the best multiplayer FPS and it's all I really play.

Ever since I got my PS3, I haven't using my PC for games much anyways. I pretty much just web browse, and come to think of it, I use my Think Pad on WiFi a lot more for that, as I enjoy kicking back on the balcony and enjoying a nice breeze whilst browsing.

I have a new iMAC...not much to see. Duo Core intel 2.6Ghz with 2Gig of RAM. It's modest, but it does the job.

check out petras techshop and danger den... petra's has some "package" with swiftech products which i recommend, just remember if you get water cooling you still need airflow otherwise the motherboard and its components like ram will heat up quickly...

i used to work att he only store in canada that did hardcore PC stuff it was sweet, never did delve into the WC stuff though. I went from modding PCs to modding cars. now i've got a modest laptop i use most of the time. it's like 4 years old now. built a new desktop like 15 months ago again enough to do what i need. petey gave me a 1 TB drive so i picked up a linksys NAS box for it. next PC item i buy is going to be an Asus EEE PC for the car so i have something small to run Vagcom on.
