No, Xigmatek Elysium, it's bigger than the 800D, as it can handle a 420+360mm rad without modding and it's $215.

If you still haven't found a monitor, I would take a look at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001431

It's the Samsung P2770FH. I have one and I LOVE it. It's great size (27"), affordable, and it looks AMAZING once you get it calibrated properly. I got it from Costco for $299.99 about a year ago (I think it's $279.99 now) and haven't had a second-thought about it once.

I'm no watercooling expert but for just a CPU loop it might cost around 200$. More if you want to cool your GPUs.

That's one of those things where you can spend as much as you want really, meaning the price ranges are pretty varied. There are plenty of people on this forum who wc, and would love to help you out. Check the wc section out.
