Well WC consists of a rad,block, Pump, Res or T line. $250 is great for a good setup.

I would suggest a Black ICE GTX360
DT fusion
1/2 OD tubing
A micro res
And a D5 vario Pump.

When water coolin you want to hotwire your PSU by hotwireing the green and black wires to test for leaks. Your wc setup should be setup like so

RES>PUMP>BLOCK>RAD>RES

Budget shall allow you to have some decent wc gear.

+1 on Sublime's suggestions.

Personally I believe this is a better order:

RES>PUMP>RAD>BLOCK>RES

This ensures the absolute coolest possible water is hitting the block...no chance of heat from the pump entering the flow before going to the block

Ours are pretty much the exact same thing except I went with a t line to save money and also went with a mcr320 to save money. If you don't mind spending some extra money, go with a res and GTX 360. For your dual core, you won't see a whole lot of difference though.

Humm I like cookies...when they're personalized PePsi~!!! Nice Photos so with $250 you will be alright...you can go about your build several ways you can buy all the parts you need from pc suppliers or you can also find a few in your garage that you may not be using at the moment.

The most important thing is to ask questions of everyone herein and research as much as possible.

I mentioned the garage as you may have a car/bike radiator that you can use, or 3/8, 1/2, etc. tubing that you can use for the water lines.

As providing you with links to parts from a pc supplier i'll leave that for someone else...i'm just not in the linking mode at the moment...lol.
