if you getting the card/waterblock combo ,all you need is good quad RAD ,pump,res,fittings,fans,and tubing.
I don't thing 200$ is enough but close
P.S. don't know much about the waterblock the card comes with,you can learn all the basics from the sticky on top of this forum

Are you only watercooling the cards?

Pump + rads will run you close to at least $200.

If so, then yes. You might consider a reservoir to make it easier to fill the loop, but not totally necessary as a T-line can easily fulfill this need.

MCP355 $65 http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swiftechmcp355.html

DDC top/res $40 http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/bibpddcmiwat.html

XSPC RX360 $86 http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsrx3xrare2.html

Yate Loons (med) $18 (3x$6) http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/yalo12d1cafa1.html

$209 before shipping. You will also need to consider fittings...either 1/2"ID or 3/8"ID and tubing will need to be considered.

I just like to make a note..if you go the DDC + TOP route ,get Koolance PMP-400+COV-RP400 (or the mini rubix mention)
the warranty on swiftech pump will be waived as soon you open the pump

^Good point. Yes, adding an aftermarket top would normally void the warranty unless you get a pump/top combo that was pre-installed.

Aren't there others like this as well?

Koolance looks like the real deal as far the pumps go
