looking to slowly build a new computer, i just uilt one last year so this is I guess more of an upgrade.... I need opinions and help. 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

Case: Xigmatek Elysium (Need)
Mobo: Sabertooth Z77 (Have)
CPU: i5 2500k (Have)
DVD: Have 1 need a second
Ram: Kingston DDR3 8gb (Have 2 want 2 more)
Hdd: Western digital black 2tb and a couple old spare drives for backups (Have)
Fans: I have 8 120mm fans and a HDD fan, need 80mm fan x1
PSU: rosewill lightning 1000w
Black wire sleeving (Need)

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.

Calming coils: ? Do they work
Pump: Koolance PMP-400 x2 w/ Heatsink addon
Tubing: ?
Coolant: ?
Additives: ?
Fittings: ?
