I will list the parts I have and what I want to get and if you can suggest any good options I want reliability without breaking the bank and will be doing this slowly. MY color scheme is white/blue

CPU: i5 2500k (Have)
DVD: Have 1 need a second
Ram: Kingston DDR3 8gb (Have 2 want 2 more)

So that is what I have/no what I want. I am only going to have 1 psu in that tower as 2 will be over kill for me. I would like to water cool and have never done it before. What I need is listed below and want suggestions/alternatives reasons why or why not would help me understand.
DVD bay cooler: Evercool Cross Flow system fan (or something better)
Graphics card: Radeon HD 5670 (need an upgrade not crazy but decent)
Watercooling: Feel free to add anything I forgot to list or anything you would recommend removing.

Pump: Koolance PMP-400 x2 w/ Heatsink addon
Radiators: ? was thinking one on the bottom and top need to no what will fit with my pSU being bottom mounted
