BFG & EVGA Launched Water Cooled GTX 280 Cards EVGA GTX 280
 
Graphics card manufacturers BFG Technologies and EVGA have both released GTX 280 cards with pre-installed waterblocks. EVGA's GTX 280 features their EVGA Hydro Copper 16 Waterbock which promises 'extra high-flow' internals, flexible barb design which allows for 4 different fitting configurations, and a heat-piped back plate.
 
BFG Technologies continues its partnership with Danger Den to bring you the GTX 280 H2OC™ 1GB graphics card.
 
The BFG GeForce graphics card with ThermoIntelligence water cooling solution offers exceptional thermal performance in a single slot design. Co-developed by BFG and Danger Den™, the ThermoIntelligence® custom copper water block is totally silent and allows the GTX 280 GPU to be factory overclocked to the highest stable level—delivering up to a 52°C lower GPU operating temperature than reference cooling solutions.

“BFG has a long and successful track record of providing high quality water cooled solutions for enthusiast level graphics cards”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “Leveraging Danger Den’s proficiency in block design and manufacturing with BFG’s award-winning overclocking expertise, we’ve put together a GTX 280 solution that provides incredible performance in a silent, single-slot solution.”

The pre-attached ThermoIntelligence copper water block replaces the standard double slot GTX 280 cooling solution for those who currently own or are purchasing a PC water cooling system. Micro fittings are also included to support 2-way or 3-way NVIDIA SLI configurations.

I'm presuming Intel? Look for a Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R. I have one here and it's a great little overclocking motherboard.

hi mate, dont be tempted by the gigabyte q35 chipped mobo, i got one and it was an awful disapointment, no overclocking options at all!

I reccommend looking into asus matx boards too, as they tend to overclock well.

This : http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=754629

is widely considered to be the best Matx board out.

If you can get your hands on one! qUite Expensive too.

I reckon you could get away with http://www.komplett.co.uk/k/ki.aspx?sku=335584 if you were on a budget, as those boards are sid to clock well too.

For AMD the Gigabyte GA 780G is a good board, got one myself for under my TV, got HDMI and fairly decent onboard graphics, plus AMD PUs are cheap as chips these days, stick an old X2 and yer sorted!
