Number of radiators in a 2 SLI GPU + CPU liop

Im building a water cooled rig soon, and i have a question.

ATM I have:
-Switch 810 case
-ASUS formula vi mobo
-2-way SLI 770's
-i5-4670k
-Swiftech H320
-Extra tubing/ water cooling parts
-All other compinents dont matter ATM

I know I will be needing another rad, im planning on getting a single 120 one soon, but will i be needing yet another rad since ill be doing SLI, most likely light OCing.

I was thinking to have it setup like this.
H320/res/pump combo --->CPU ---> single 120 rad ---> 770 #1 --->***---> 770 #2 --->H320, etc.

***-heres my question. Do i need another rad here (spot marked by ***) in between the two 770's? If so, would another single 120 be good? And do you guys know good places to mounts my rads on the switch 810 case?

    I would do a 240 rad instead of that 120 rad i think and call it a day. Should be fine with some good fans meant for radiators.

    So a 360 and a 240 would be good? Does the prder of the components and rads affect temps? I.e setting up all you rads before the cpu as opposed to one before one after, etc...
