You don't have any HDD? You don't need 2x 256 SSDs. That's just over kill at this point for a gaming rig. You probably don't need anything over 120 to be honest. Take that extra money and spend it on on a nice monitor or something.

Thanks for the advice, have 3 NEC 30" monitors already, i will be needing the space for my hometheater setup and some minor video editing. im still looking for some good quality, high volume HDDs.

Cool, thanks. I think im almost ready to order these parts, do you think RAM cooling in this setup is beneficial. and what hoses/fitting, radiators, fans, and water pump and if i missed somthing do you think i need to complete my setup?

Does Anyone have a good idea of what fans, hoses, fiting, radiators, and water pump i need that would complete my parts list?

The Gentle Typhoon AP 15 fans are some of the best, but a little pricey.

Primochill tubing is popular and for good reason.

Fittings are going to be more of a personal choice thing, but Monsoon compression fittings have been talked up a lot lately it seems. I just have Bitspower barbs and have zero complaints.

Radiators I'm not much of an expert on. I'd say get a 360 radiator and a 240 radiator. It'd be enough to cool all your parts, and wouldn't require any sort of case modding. As for what kind of radiators? I'm sure someone else could jump in with a recommendation. I've got a Swiftech MCR 220 radiator that has been pretty good, and two Black Ice 120 radiators that have treated me well.

For a pump, the Swiftech MCP 655 is the bees knees. It isn't pretty, but works well with many bay reservoirs, or can be placed in an inconspicous location. It moves a ton of water, and is very quiet once the system is bled, even on the highest setting.

There are a few here that have already done similar builds. They can probably give you a better idea of all the fittings and stuff. Take a look here
