Way over budget!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

First time system builder though I've been lurking here for quite some time. Decided to water clock this baby and have been looking out for parts. Haven t decided on a mobo and VGU (either 2900xt or 8800gts 640) yet but do have a e4300 already. Unfortunately, Canadian prices + shipping/taxes really stretches my budget. My system so far:
Core2Duo- e4300
G skills 4gb ddr2 800 ram

Heres what I have in mind so far. All prices from ncix.com

1) Teflon tape
2) Swiftech MCR320 - $63 or HW Labs Black Ice GT Stealth 360 Triple 120MM- $70
3) D-TEK Fuzion CPU + GPU - $107 or Swiftech Apogee GT - $50 + Danger Den MAZE4 GPU Waterblock- $36
4) Danger Den DDC-2 - $85
5) Clearflex 60 Tubing 1/2IN 10 feet - $20
6) Swiftech Hydrx Water Additive Coolant 2 oz- $4
5) Thermaltake A2368 120MM Fan 2000RPM 21DBA 78CFM 4-PIN Molex- 8x3= $24 (PM NCIX with Direct Canada)
6) Danger Den Adjustable White Hose Clamps- 1.50x8= $12
7) Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Clear HI-FLOW Water Cooling Reservoir 1/2IN Barb Fittings - $20

Am I missing something? (Y fittings would be one I guess). The total comes up over $300 for this alone (not counting stuff I'm missing). I was hoping to maintain a budget of $200-250. Any way to bring the total down without affecting performance too much?

Thank you

EDIT ** Replaced Yate Loons for Thermaltake fans
** Added Swiftech reservoir

Total with suggested changes comes upto 370 (even with free shipping) Thats over a 100 bucks over my budget

For reference: DD 4200 Kit comes for $325 and Zalman Reserator 2 External Fanless Water Cooling Kit for roughly 380

I'd go with the 360 GTS and the Fuzion...Put some decent 120x38mm fans on the rad 70+ cfm...And you need a res or a T-Line...I run my loop res-pump-rad-cpu-any other blocks...That way the CPU gets the coolest water possible....

Thanks guys, I actually wouldnt mind a bit of a downgrade just to keep the prices to "cheap student" levels 2nd hand would be fine too.
