If you are concerned about the heatsink fitting in your case it fits into an antec 900 which has 1/2 inch less width than your case.

That will make a big difference. Put the top fan ("blowhole") and rear fan as exhaust, and the front/side fan(s) as intake and you should be good to go.

Acrylic doesn't allow heat to transfer through the case as well as metal does. Your fans will be the only way for the heat to be removed.

Water Cooling 101 An In-Depth Guide to Taking the Plunge.

Water cooling is great if you are looking for some serious overclocks. If you run at stock speeds do not waste your money.

ram
Newegg.com - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

motherboard
Newegg.com - ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
or
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

While there are higher end boards these are great for the price.
