Mixing electrical/electronic hardware with fluid just seems like an accident waiting to happen.

Is it necessary? Is it to impress your buddies?
Wasted money?

why not just get a case with good airflows, some fans, and cold cathode lights. much cheaper, and works. and an aftermarket heatsink/fan would do nice, especially that Zalman one.

Because he said hes going to overclock. Water cooling offers far more potential than air cooling when it comes to OC'n.

A good WC setup for both GPU and CPU is gonna cost you ~$250, so that only leaves you with $750 for the rest of the PC. I'd say save up a bit more, so you at least have $1000 just for the PC itself.
