So that rad is good?

There really are no BAD rads out there (Other than the aluminium ones), That rad there is a bit below average, however, and it does perform worse than the MCR series from Swiftech. What speed will you be running your fans? If you're running higher speed fans you can go with higher FPI which perform better in a smaller package. If you're looking for cheap, then with fans above 2000rpm, the Koolance radiators perform very well with their very high FPI. Otherwise there are a lot of low speed radiators that perform great too.

I forgot to mention in my first post, the rule is one 120mm per component PLUS an extra 120mm (I don't know how I missed that)!

Yep the fans are above 2000rpm not sure on the exact number. These are the ones I am using:
http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=70461&vpn=CO-9050008-WW&manufacture=Corsair&promoid=1360

This rad decent?

http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=72237&vpn=MCR220-XP&manufacture=Swiftech&promoid=1198

If I do end up getting a 3rd rad (probably wont) how is this one:
http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=20088&vpn=MCR120-QP-K&manufacture=Swiftech&promoid=1198

compared to this:

I agree, you are pushing the limits of your rad, with a 1" thick core it won't matter how much fan you throw at it.

By comparison, I am running a quad rad with a 2" core and 4x SP-120 Quiet Edition, at 4.5Ghz plus 2x gtx480s in the loop I never see 60C

Unfortunately your options are limited on NCIX. The rad I would have suggested for that kind of fan is not there (in 2x120mm). But, really, the best rad on that site in 2x120 is the XSPC RX240, you'd need an extra 120mm as well. If you're willing to go to http://www.dazmode.com/store/category/radiators_gen1/ I would recommend something like the XSPC EX series or the Koolance high-density series. These rads, because of their high fin density, are both cheap and, with your fans, will easily match the performance of many of the best radiators out there.

That would be the recommended rad space for your layout, yes. But note that is a crossflow radiator with ports at either end, there are also other models with different ports. Just pick which will be best for your layout!

Looks good. Just out of curiosity though, do you have a lead on some 5970 waterblocks? Because I imagine they could be quite hard to find these days, given that the 5970 is a fairly old card.

I found two 5970's with EK blocks on ebay for 240, they did not sell so I am trying to work something out with the seller for one card w/ block + 2nd block. If I can find the link again I did find a place that had bitpower blocks for $99.
