Yeah you can do that.. get waterblock that fits that socket..  if you do watercooling.. you are going to want a fairly large case.. I think having the cooling unit inside looks better than having one outside..

im going to HAVE to upgrade sooner or later to save money down the line, so maybe for my b-day or some holiday ill ask or buy it myself a new case and a cheap cooling unit, can you go cheap or are they worthless if you pay like 80 bucks for one?

yeah and it is also steel.. which is cheap to make.. and does an ok job as a heat sink.. but copper.. that is where it is at!  the heat transfer is better in copper so you can move more heat away.. that being said.. you need to make sure that you pick up some good thermal compound... I would personally recommend Arctic Alumina by arctic silver.. http://www.arcticsilver.com/arctic_alumina.htm  It is made so that there is no chance of it becoming conductive!  Arctic silver 5 is there other product but since this is you first time, i am guess here i could be wrong, there is a slight possibility that Arctic Silver can become conductive and cause problems.
