There is not much performance difference between 3/8" ID and 1/2" ID, it depends on if you like the look of fat tubing or thin. Either way I would go for the thicker wall varieties as they are a lot more kink resistant:

3/8" ID x 5/8" OD
1/2" ID X 3/4" OD

If you use barbs then it is a good idea to get some clamps, either the spring steel ones, the plastic ones, the worm drive ones or even just a couple of zip-ties.

For barbs you want to match the barb to the ID and the clamp to the OD of the tubing.

For compression fittings you need to match both the ID and the OD of the tubing to the fitting.

There is another option whereby you use 7/16" ID tubing with 1/2" barbs. As this gives a really tight fit then you don't need clamps, and you get a really clean look.

The Rasa RX kit you mentioned before you edited the post is a good option as well, it contains everything you need except some biocide (PT Nuke or a silver killcoil) and some distilled water (~$2 / gallon at the grocery store). It is also expandable and comes at a great price.

I second the 7/16 tubing. And please don't put those hose clamps on your loop - they're hideous! If you use 7/16 tubing, hose clamps aren't even necessary - though I would probably still use them anyway for peace of mind. Use something like this instead.

Also take a look at the Koolance CPU-370 block. It's a bit more expensive, but it's supposed to be the latest and greatest and supposedly it has a top-notch mounting system.
