unless your not gonna overclock to insane levels, you dont need the water cooling. they can be a pain in the ass and need constant attention.

Just use a CM Hyper 212+ to cool your CPU and use the money saved to invest into a better graphics card with more VRAM like a gtx 660ti or 7950...

stick with a 212+/EVO as long as yoir case can fit it, if not grab a gensis sII524 or a closed loop all in one
the 570 performs between the 7850 and 7870
