Is the 8800gts 320mb the only available option? A 8800gt will perform better than this, and if you can spend more, a 8800gts g92 will perform much better.

No to all those.

Your going to need atleast a 360 radiator to cool both the CPU & GPU in the same loop. That GPU block contains aluminum, you don't want to mix copper and aluminum it eads to corrosion. Plus you'll probably want a couple extrea feet then the provided.

I recommend staying away from fluidxp. Very viscous and leaves gunk in the blocks. You're also gonna need at least a 2x120mm radiator, I recommend a 3x120mm rad. A quad on a 120mm will perform worse than a TRUE. Also, you're gonna need more tubing than that. I recommend tygon 1/2" tubing.

I already owned the 8800GTS. and a 700Watt PSU

Btw thanks for those recommended parts...I also DO NOT WANT TO SAW MY P182. So a single Fan Radiator is more suitable...unless theres something else I can do?

A 120mm radiator will NOT cool even one of your components, let alone the gpu and cpu. You will overheat. Simple as that. What I recommend is getting the swiftech 3x120mm radiator

and mounting it on the back of the case using the swiftech radbox. That way you shouldn't have to do any cutting.

Oh my god thanks. Never heard of these..my first build using water cooling.

Is the radbox another case or can I use my P182?

Not to be redundant, but get a G92 8800 (8800GTS 512Mb, 8800GT, or maybe a 9600GT), unless you already own that 320MB...
