Default water cooling set up, need some advise

this is the setup am looking into getting. Am open to any constructive criticism:

Swiftech Apogee™ GTZ CPU Waterblock - Socket LGA 775
Feser One Non Conductive Cooling Fluid - 1000 ml - UV Blue (F1-0001)
XSPC Dual Bay Reservoir Pump Combo
Tygon 1/4" ID (3/8" OD) Tubing (6 feet)
Black Ice GTX Xtreme 240 Radiator - Black
AeroCool 120mm Turbine 2000 Fan - BLACK (2x)
Logisys 4" Cold Cathode Kit (Dual Ready) - UV
Thermaltake Flow TX Plus Flow Meter w/ Temperature Indicator (CL-W0138)

Right now am looking at around $400 with shipping and minor things that i may need to pick up. Am going with frozencpu.com for all the parts. If anyone has any thoughts on that please feel free share. Thanks for all the advise and help.

instead of that pump and res combo i would get this,

Newegg.com - Swiftech MCP355 12 VDC Pump - Water Cooling

and the res top for it,

Petra's Tech Shop

and if you wanted to save a few bucks then you could get this rad instead,

Newegg.com - Swiftech MCR220-QP Liquid Cooler Radiator - Water Cooling

edit: and you need to get some 3/8 in ID tubing, you have 1/4 in ID tubing which will not work.

Swiftech res is good. Probably best bang for your buck. XSPC rx240 is another good res but cost alittle more. I would also recommend the DDC pump Philbar chose w/ an XSPC res top.

^i think you mean rad, not res.

and as philbar said, go with some thicker tubing. i use 1/2" ID 3/4" OD.

+1 to the ddc355 and xspc res top
