You have to decide what you want to cool by water cooling. I know it looks cool and all that but it is a lot of work and planning to get everything just right and working properly. I would suggest to start out small and work your way up to get experience with it and even to see if you want to continue with it.
With water cooling you have to buy all the parts seperatly because the complete kits don't always match up with the components that you have. Your first build should have the Corsair H-100 cpu cooler and that will get your feet wet.

CORSAIR H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
$119.99

Water cooling is also expensive. I would read the links below to get familiar with the facts about water cooling
