Opinions please...

Alright I'm building a "somewhat" new system, and I could use some input.

First off. I'll be using my x800pro. Becuase of two reasons, I dont have a huge budget, and I havent fully used this cards potential. I.E. I had to flash back to my Pro bios from the XT due to some overheating issues when a clip busted on my Silencer. I have an unused 3200+ (venice) just itching to get out and be Oc'd.

I have about $1000 to spend. I also wanted to go watercooling for both my VGA and CPU...so I found this .....

First off, I love Danger Den, but this is a good price and pre-fabbed (I'm rather lazy lately) So I'm looking for a pre-fabbed WC unit(including everything) as a big thing on my list. I was looking at DFI for a mobo, an NF3 chipset, not to sure though. Ram I'm going PDP, thats simple. But I need a 17in LCD, speakers (5.1) and a sound card as well. I'm picking up a Thermaltake 560 watt Pure Power supply for this thing, so basically the below items are what I would like to know about....

WC unit, Mobo, Speakers, Monitor and Sound card are what I need the most info on... any help is appreciated, thanks.

try an x-connect 500W their selling them for about $30 or get the new x-finity(more expensive but better). The x-finity has dual 12v rails.
