    Well I'm a n00b at cooling. But is watercooling worth it for your video card. I'm really interested becuase I feel like spending money lol. Anyways what do I need for this? People say from what I heard that buying a whole watercooled setup doesn't inprove much but its better to by it piece by piece. Can you guys tell me some good parts I can get and brands or something. I don't really care much about the processor because the fan on that is really quiet. Its my x1800 is so loud..

    I would get a single 120mm radiator and a semi-high flow pump, about 5ft of tubing (for just a video card, i'd do 3/8th", if you plan to add your cpu in, go with 1/2"), zip ties, reservoir, and a fair waterblock.. You should be fine with that.. should run you about $220~ if you get an expensive wb. $180~ on the lower side of the price scale..

    dont do the thermaltake thing, i dont think that will handle the heat from the x1xxx series very well.. you'd be better off going with a seperate system.

    **Heres a part list, $192~ @ xoxide.com.
