Water-cooling is the easiest of the three, and probably enough for what most anyone would need. It will keep your T-Bird running just a few degrees above ambient temp. There are a lot of places that sell water-cooling kits. There are a lot more, I just can't think of any right now.

If you don't know much about peltiers then I wouldn't even consider using one yet. You can really damage your CPU, and /or your power supply.
If you have the money to spend on it, then vapor phase is probably the best. This can get your processor to about -20C. Even an Athlon.I only know of two companies that make kits. Aztech's Vapochill kit sells for about $650.

Read up on it and decide for yourself what you want to do.
Your senfu address seems to lead to some crappy pokemon websites... :wink:
If you dont't want to invest a fortune, and don't want to spends hours on the net learning how to use peltiers or water cooling systems, you can just get a good heatsink.
I would suggest you Alphas, or the Hedgehog. You'll might want to use a Blue ord for you video card. They are the best , and the most expensive coolers available.
Sorry here's the correct Senfu address: <A HREF="http://www.senfu.com.tw/net.htm" target="_new">http://www.senfu.com.tw/net.htm</A>
Air cooling is easiest and usually good enough, but if your up to it, then I encourage trying water cooling.
