10' should be plenty, with some to spare for mess-ups. You might want to get 15', just in case. That also leaves you some room to play around with the routing later on, if you upgrade or what not.

basically what lando said. 15 might be too much, but definitely know what you're doing before you go cutting tubes. i'd hate to have to order more tubing simply because i had no idea what i was doing when i started cutting...lol I think that 13 feet should be plenty.

I think the cheapest you will find is here: http://www.mcmaster.com/

$1.25/foot is about normal though. Clearflex is ok, but I suggest Primo-Flex, available at Voyeurmods.com. It is more expensive, but it totally rocks. It has the tightest bending radius that I have ever seen. Super flexible, sturdy, you can't go wrong. However, if you need to save some money, HomeDepot has some cheap tubing in stock that goes for $5 for a 10' roll.

For the HomeDepot stuff? Yeah, it's not bad. It doesnt bend the tightest turns, but for $5 a roll you can't beat it. If you can set up your system with minimal bends, then go for it. If not, spend the xtra money and get the good stuff.
