If you've got that much to spend I'd suggest buying a 9800GX2 and a better processor.

I just reviewed the Thermaltake Bigwater 760i Water Cooling Kit. It's pretty easy to build. It costs about $120. I'm also now reviewing the Zalman Reserator XT which is about $500 so that would probably be out of the question ;)
