like Aidenswarrior said, whats your budget? Also, list what components you plan to wc and what case you have? Like most things cheapest/best dont go well together in the wcing department. I would spend some time on the forums making constructive posts so you can view the classifieds (not spamming then you'll never see them), it takes 100+ for them to be available to you. That way you can find some great deals on slightly used/leaktested parts.

You know I have toyed with it somewhat myself. www.DangerDen.com has the best price by far on the Black Ice Radiators. And www.performance-pcs.com has the best price on the Eheim 1250's.

5|*42, the 5 gallon bucket acts as a radiator.

That kit is comprised of all quality parts. that site carries all of PolarFlo and danger den with prices slightly lower. The kit comes with everyting you would need. You could buy the one without block and pick your own block or look at the kits bundled with various blocks.

You can get them over at Doctors Foster & Smith.com & they've dropped the price on them as well. You might as well get the 1800 while you're at it since theres a $1.60 difference between the 1300 & 1800.

On large cases (Armor, Stacker) you can place the rad infront with no/very little modding. Also there is the Swiftech RadBox thing where you can mount the rad in the back of the case, check their site for pics.
