I too plan on watercooling soon, but because of the cost of the parts I've chosen, it'll be a little while. I'm looking at about $560 +/-.
2 Swiftech QP 480mm rads, 8 NZXT 120mm fans, Swiftech Apogee Drive II, and some sort of full-cover block for a reference 6950 (preferably a Swiftech Komodo if I find one at a decent price), and some sort of reservoir, though I haven't decided on which. Heck I should contact Swiftech and see if they want to sponsor my rig lol. I also plan on adding one of those northbridge waterblocks I linked to earlier in the thread. Overkill I know, but it's mostly for aesthetics.
Don't buy Swiftech Rads, get some Black Ice rads. They are better and look damn sexy. Not sure if they are cheaper, too lazy to check
. Get the FrozenQ res! Damn sexy. Yea, I'm getting slightly more expensive things to get performance and aesthetics. My overall WC build will come to a total of $650. Just for the WC stuff. Also, I have to get 2 660Ti blocks because I'm ordering 2 660Ti's for only $350. I love my dad's friends at Microcenter and putting it under his corp helps a lot too.
