Default Watercooling

Hey i am investing in watercooling soon. Id love to keep my cpu (2800+ Barton) nice and cool and maybe my new graphics (9800pro). Should i go for a kit? And what kit? Also if i bought seperatly is it cheaper and better? Where can i get some UV dye? Not got that much money to spend, am hoping less that a 100 but i guess i can stretch. Im not overclocking by the way, im just a noise freak

Add air conditioning to the room where the computer will be, make sure there open access to the computer not in a closet or drawer and everything will be fine.

Don't invest in water cooling, unless:

You are gonna go for a land speed record by over-clocking your CPU and Graphics card. It just isn't worth it.

OR

You just wanna do it to look cool...then just do it.

decided to get a Thermaltake Aquarius II Water Cooling Kit. I can get it for about 70. What you think?
