hey guys
So I know this isnt the most high end but im trying to do this on a tight budget, im going to be getting a 290 and eventually upgrade my prcocessor and mobo to haswell-e but this will work on my 2500k for now. Im also going to be going with the corsair 760t case with this setup.

Try performance-pcs.com I recommend them over frozenCPU.com they are cheaper and a lot more friendly at customer service.
The XSPC kit is good, and i would recommend the D5 Vario/Dual 5.25" Bay Pump/Res Combo Kit, over the 750, the pump is better.

Here is a picture of my current setup with the XSPC kit with EK GPU Blocks and another Radiator

That's a case of spend the money now or later. Personally I'd wait and save up enough to get the d5 model from the start.

So the 750 is no good then? I read several reviews that said it could handle a cpu+gpu setup?
