Question Water Cooling?

I have been thinking about buying a new heat sink for my CPU and i was thinking, how much would it be to set up water cooling? And is water cooling worth it? I don't know what all you need to set it up so...can someone figure up a setup for me that has everything i need? I have A C2D on an LGA775 Mobo

Is this a good starter water cooling system, or do i need something else?

I think i might end up getting the tuniq tower 120.

or do u know if the tuniq tower is worth the $10-$15 over the zalman 9700?

Tuniq Tower is the god of HSF. It is like zeus... not some other wimpy god.

I mean sure it takes up a lot of real estate, but it keeps your CPU nice and coooool. If you want Pics/help just holla at me.
