I would like to build a pc to get into water cooling and OCing. I need the it to be cheap because being very new i know im gonna mess up some component. Im not looking for it to be outrageously powerful but i do want to install a cpu block, chipset block and get a gfx card block. i understand the water cooling parts are expensive but try to keep them on the cheaper side. Thank you for any help/advise you can give me...

Watercooling and cheap don't fit in the same sentence except when it reads: 'watercooling is not cheap'.

See my answer about the Corsair H60 in the thread named:

Only CPU, first watercooling.

Saves you much money than building it yourself and very simple and effective even to cooling rather high OC!

You won't be able to really do anything with 300-500 dollars...that's the typical price of a watercooling loop.

cheapest you can fully go with a custom watercooling loop that can overclock would probably be a llano based build.

i would recommend a cpu only loop for the low budget...
