I was looking at some watercooling kits because I want to try to watercool my Core i7 860 but I didn't want to spend a lot a wanted one that was easy to assemble and everything.

I was thinking this:
GIGABYTE GH-WIU02 3D Galaxy II Liquid Cooling:

Can you tell me if this will keep my temps down and be easy enough for me. Thanks

From my limited (well no) experience with water-cooling, there is no good water cooling kit for a "noob", because installing a water-cooling system is pretty advanced stuff. I myself would try to see what I can do with fans before even considering liquid-cooling.

There are plenty of of air coolers that are cheaper and will work just as well for your uses as a self described noob.

the radiator in that galaxy kit is way too small to do any serious overclocking. same for the h50. i actually owned the corsair h50 and i just switched over to a real water cooling system. If you want the h50 ive got it sitting next to me right now.
