Inexprerianced gamer looking for mind melt

Hello, im new to your forums, im quite computer savvy but im totally new to the o/c scene

I've been very interested in o/c and i was wondering if you guys could lend me a hand in deciding what watercooling parts i should get.

I've just bought a beast of a pc and i want it to be watercooled but every where i look my inexperiance puts me down again.

Also an idea of what sort of overclocking i can achive with my system would be great. I really dont wanna spend more that AUS $1,500.

Ill take foto's and upload them if you can help me work out a solution.

(p.s I would like a case with a side panel)

Well here's the specs:

------------------------------------------------

CASE: Antec P182 (believe its too small for the parts, its up and running atm and does insane in games but i wont have a problem with buying a new case)

PSU: Thermaltake 1200W Modular

MOBO: ASUS Maximus Formula

RAM: 4x1GB Corsair C4DHX DDR2

CPU: INTEL QX9650 EXTREME QUAD

GFX: 2 x 3870X2's IN CROSSFIRE (RUNS EXTREMELY HOT)

SOUND: CREATIVE XFI FATALITY

HDD'S: SATA1 10000RPM WD RAPTOR 74GB

SATA2 7200RPM WD 250GB 16MB CACHE

SATA2 7200RPM SEAGATE 500GB 32MB CACHE

SATA2 7200RPM SEAGATE 500GB 32MB CACHE

DISC DRIVES: LG RW MULTI

LG ROM

FAN CONTROLLERS: ZALMAN ZM-MFC2

STORAGE: TT IBOX

------------------------------------------------

Any Idea's?

*EDIT*

Forgot to mension what it is i want to w/c

CPU, and gfx cards, the mobo has a built in W/C block for the n/b and s/b so i dont need a block for that

is it really important to cool these parts well when i o/c?

or would a lead off valve from before the cpu do the trick?

e.g

pump ----------------cpu-------------.....

|------chipset-----|

i have my own thermal paste i can use, looks like i can just crew it off clean it and apply my own
