First what case do you have that will dictate how many rads and how big the rads can be, also what cpu are you using and what graphics cards are you using. but for now a good place to buy watercooling parts in the US is performance PCS.

The starting point is definitely going to google, searching for "Basic guide to pc watercooling", and having a skim read or a quick watch of some youtube videos. Until you get to the point where your question looks more like "Do these components seem like a good choice for a loop to cool Component X and Component Y in Case Z"
You can't expect someone to hold your hand through the entire process right from square 1...

Read the stickies at the top of the forum.
Figure out what you want to cool.
Determine how much heat in Watts you will need to remove.
Decide what level of fan and pump noise is tolerable for you.
After the above is complete figure out what combination of RADs, fans, pumps, blocks & REZ, will get you the results you want/need.
Pick a case that it will all fit in, and start buying stuff.
For your first build keep it simple.

After you have read the stickies on water cooling. You will have a great base of knowledge to make educated choices and ask questions.
