I'd reccomend a Gigabyte X58 Extreme over the eVga or Asus. Its a solid board and apparently the eVga x58 is not that good.

I would suggest running more than one loop, but this will depend on if you can fit all the pumps inside the case aswell as the radiators.

There is a watercooled i7 build log linked in my sig. (BubblelessI7)

yea ill look into the mobos a bit more, im sure everything will fit inside the mozart tx im new to watercooling so im still learning but can i have 2 radiators to one pump or would i be better off just making 2 different setups for cpu/nb and the other for the video cards?

I'd have a seperate loop for the GFX but you could run say...

RAD1...CPU...NB/SB...RAD2...GPU(S)...RES/T-Line...PUMP(D5)...RAD1

If your doing a single loop I would suggest a Liang MCP655/Danger Den D5 Pump.

2 HW Labs Black Ice GTX240,
Swiftech MCP655 12v DC Pump - with Speed Controller(possible 2 not sure yet)
EK Supreme with the socket 1366 mounting plate

all this is a bit overwhelming for me lol im just going to take my time and choose my components wisely

That sounds fairly good. I've heard the EK block can be restrictive but im not too sure, you may wanna check that up.

Depending how many GFX cards need cooling you may wanna upsize your radiators.
