Here is a decent kit...It's not really what you would think of as a kit...It's all high quality parts and is easy to upgrade....You may want to add a double rad to it later on.........Swiftech H20-120 Premium 120mm Water Cooling Kit


Here is an econo-rig......Snerps Cheap Water Cooling


If you look around you may be able to buy used parts and make a custom..This would be a good double rad for it.....Danger Den :: Radiators :: Black Ice Series :: GTS Stealth Radiator :: Stealth GTS 240 Black Ice

so if i build a custom rig, i could use that danger den radiator - 50$, and i could get the Swiftech Apogee, then i need a pump, resovoir, tubes, and cooling solution

maybe i should just get teh h20-120 and try and upgrade to a dual fan radiator l8r

Here you go.....

Get one of fstfrddys cpu blocks..... Stinger WB

Pump........ Danger Den :: Pumps :: Danger Den DDC-12V

Res or just use a T-Line......Danger Den :: Reservoirs :: Bay Style Reservoirs :: Danger Den Single 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir

Tubing...Use with 1/2" fittings, flows about as well as 1/2
' tubing but is easier to work with....Danger Den :: Tubing :: Tubing and Clamps :: 7/16" ID (5/8" OD) Masterkleer General Purpose Clear PVC Tubing

If you can find a used Swiftech apogee CPU block they are really good...

If You can find all this used it would make a great rig..All you would have to buy new is the tubing...Look around in the for sale forum, you see WC gear fairly often....

You can use 5 or 10% anti-freeze with the rest distilled water for your coolant...

I know you need to make this as economical as you can, that said don't use any of the T-Take stuff, sell it, throw it away just don't use it....

Get all your stuff with 1/2" fittings...You can usually change the babrs in parts to whatever size you need, which in your case will be 1/2"....

That 7/16 x 5/8 Masterkleer tubing will fit on 1/2" barbs..You may have to heat the end of it in a cup of hot water to get it to go on...It's easier to route it around in your case compared to the 1/2 x 3/4" stuff...It flows about as well....

fstfrddy makes a new CPU block he calls the "Standard" it works as well as the more expensive V-6 version, it just has plexi mounts and yoou can't take the block apart on it...

Just go to just web-site and E-Mail him from there or PM him here, you can get a mod to PM him for you...He can give you a price..I would go with the Swifty or Danger Den parts...A lot of the German stuff is 3/8 and usually costs more also...
The Maze 4 or 5 are supposed to be good GPU blocks as is this oneEDIT: Yeah that looks like a good rig.....Swiftech MCW60 Extreme Duty VGA Bare Water Block (3/8" and 1/2" barbs)
