If you are looking for some to handle a future i7 build I think you should consider a 360mm RAD and 1/2" tubing. From what I hear i7 is a heat monster and will not be so easy to cool as your E8400.

cpu block: undecided. (Swiftech Apogee GTZ maybe?)
radiator: Feser 240mm or Swiftech 240mm I'm planning on upgrading to i7 eventually and also cooling my chipset/mosfets.
pump: Swiftech MCP655
tubing: 7/16" ID (5/8" OD) Tygon How many feet you guys suggest? for just cpu
reservoir: Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Rev2
I know I'll need fittings and clamps as well, but I don't know where to get fittings for the tubing size I was planning on using. I'm going to install it in my antec 1200, which I've installed all orange fans and cathodes into. The fans I'd be using on the radiator are the xigmatek 120mm white led fans. I'm pretty sure they push ~61cfm. I plan on using push-pull for the radiator.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
