Already made a first mistake (I think) , I built my first system which is:
Amd 64 fx-62, Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe mother......
and I wanted to water cool it so I went got a '' Thermaltake Bigwater 735''
which i understand it is not even close to a good system.....
My temp sucks 40c idle, 55+c load...
What should I do next:
1--Take whole thing apart and buy a better one( if so which one)?
2-- Or is there parts I can add to this system that would help (bigger radiator, pump etc.....)?

Iam looking for the most cost effective.....
thanks.

If I was going to bother with WC, I'd go with Swiftec or Danger Den and get a rad at least as large as two 12cm fans just for the CPU. Actually, make that three. And I'd fit the rad qith quiet fans like SilenX or Scythe. Cost effective? Read the stickies here and on XS and build your own.

Those temps are not that bad. It isn't going to run any faster if you lower the temps. Spend the money on faster components. What would you gain if you lower your temps by 15c?
