Water loop help

Im looking into building a watercooled loop and I really am just not sure where to begin with picking out all the parts like the reservoir, pumps, radiators etc. I'm hooping someone can point me in the right direction. My current setup is


-CM storm stryker
-i7 3770k
-GTX 680 FTW SLI
-Corsair HX750 PS
-ASrock Z77 exreme4 MB
-2 SSD crucial


I would like to stay under 300 or so if possible.

Are you just going to cool the CPU? ot the GPU as well? If both, you'll be pushing that budget as the block for the GPU will probably be $100 if not a bit more. I don't know all that much about doing a full custom loop, but having looked up prices of parts, $300 is a bit low to do both

Ya I am planning on doing two gpu's and two radiators most likely. if it's more that's fine I just really want to do more research on what all I would need to do it with my case, etc.

Yeah you're probably looking at $200 alone just for the water blocks for the GPUs. I'd say check here for parts http://www.frozencpu.com/

I usually see them recommended as the place to get parts. But yeah expect close to $300 for the two GPU blocks and the CPU block total, then a good rad, a good res, the piping, the fittings, some good fans. You're probably going to run about $500 minimum honestly. a Full custom loop isn't cheap, but it looks cool as hell and provides awesome cooling.

Might help with parts and estimations
