I keep my warranty, I get more performance over a 355 pump, and I also get speed control.
As for a reservoir, I just like the 35x reservoir. It's only $30, and saves me from buying two more fittings because it mounts right on top of the pump. Unless your thinking of me to get a Swiftech Microres2... no thanks

You can get a DDC-1 pump from Bmaverick here on OCN for $35 and add a XSPC DDC top/res for $33. That graph showing more pumping power for the 35X is good, but you're not running anything that really needs it and a 10-12watt DDC pump will work fine. You only be adding more draw and not really gain more flow IMO.
