Uh, 36 feet of tubing is kind of overkill? I find that 6 foot lengths result in less "wastage" when cutting to size.

The Rad gasket isn't necessary but is nice for making a good seal between the rad and case or fans and rad. It can also serve as a template for cutting.

36 feet is a lifetime supply.......

Stop looking at computer sites. Acrylic tubing (cast and extruded) is available form online plastic retailers.

Make sure the bending rubber in the tool kit is for the size tubing you're buying.

You need fans. And they will have a great effect on how much heat will actually be removed from the system vs how much noise the WCing system will make. See This For Some Information

A 4 x 120 rad is kind of overkill, unless you plan on using quiet, low pressure fans.

I don't know how experienced you are, but you may want to consider:
Learn to crawl before you walk, and learn to walk before you run.
Build the new computer.
When it's up and running to your satisfaction, then add the WCing using soft tubing.
When that's all OK switch over to hard line tubing.
