Which one do you want? lol. I found it very hard to use those 2 questions in one sentence.

What is a huge cost to you? 50 bucks or 300 bucks?

also you will need to evaluate your case structure, will you have the room for the kit, closed circuit style or resevour.

I am using the kit from Swiftech, I think i got it for about $180.00 US dollars.

Are you overclocking? or doing this for noise reasons? answering that will open different doors for the kit your looking for.

Let me know what your intentions are and I can help.

You can save money by using a heatercore ($17-$30) instead of a BlackIce. Also, PVC (like ClearFlex 60) tubing is just as good as Tygon, but much less expensive.

The best way to save money is to do things right the first time. Spend time researching and don't buy crappy components.

Before you get your feet wet with watercooling, I highly recommend you do some reading until you get a little bit more knowledge on it. :)

via aqua 1300
tc-4(wenever its available)
t- fitting instead of res
4-5 feet of targon
