Default Best water cooling kit for appox. $200

I am looking into water cooling, but I don't have a ton a cash, I my buget is $200(shipping isn't free ya know :P) this looks like a solid kit, but i want another radiator, all the ones i looked at want aluminum fittings.(not to mention they are expensive)

I am also looking at this one: Titan TWC-A04

the problem with these sites is that I am a paranoid kinda guy, i prefer trusted sites(newegg, xoxide, frozencpu).
anyone have any thoughts?

--------------------------------EDIT---------------------------------------
I forgot to mention that my case is this:

I modded it to have a 120mm blowhole on top, and an 80mm fan blowing on the GFX card.

I went to dangerden.com and customized a kit:
Custom Kit:, AMD, DDRBX, Lucite, -, None, 1/2 OD, Xtreme BLACK, Sunon 120mm, -, L35, 7 ft CF60, Round Res, -, 4oz Zerex Coolant, Stainless Steel, 12 Clamps/Y/T
it is priced at 228.95 is that a good deal? does it have good performance too?
