I5-3570k & 670T Watercooled? What is Needed?

Alright guys though I've PMed Many on my watercooling questions, but now It's time to get the Public's thoughts. :) 

Okay, I have just recently been doing extensive research on Watercooling loops and still learning the ropes on how to do so... I've Read through YOUR STICKY OKAY!?!?, But Reading more Stickies n' Such seem to make me more confused.(Because I'm noob) I can still use context clues and get the general idea though. :lol: 

I'm Looking to cool an i5-3570k and a 670-TOP at somewhere near superb Temperatures. My Budget is $500 On just the Water cooling. :D  I've selected parts that are for surely needed. ( VGA Block & CPU Block ) Though still need some advice on the Res, Pump, Tubing, and Fitting portion of things. So if you could help that would be great!

Now I need radiators obviously, but I do not really know which one i needed. I've been give many answers from 360 Rad to 360+240 Rad. So here's my Assumption on radiators and how much i need. |
V

i5-3570k & 670-TOP. An i5-3570k Runs at 77TDP. GTX 670 Runs at 170TDP. 77 + 170 = 247. Therefore 247W is being pulled from them at 100% load. SOooooo... 240 RAD Would possibly be a minimum and 360 Rad would be sufficient if you were not overclocking.

i5-3570k & Dual 670-TOP's An i5-3570k Runs at 77TDP. Dual GTX 670 Run at 340TDP. 340 + 77 = 417. Therefore 417W is being pulled from them at 100% Load. 360 rad wouldn't be very good if you were to overclock. 360RAD + 240RAD = 600RAD ( In my eyes ) so therefore 600W can be dissipated. which is possibly good for overclocking?

That is my assumption on how much radiator i need ^

Here's the parts I've Started out with:
CPU Block: XSPC Raystorm
VGA Block: 670T Block May change GPU's because EK nickel blocks have had some problems Or Find another block.

Might Get These RADS:
RAD: AX360
RAD: EX240
But lack the knowledge to know if this is what i need. So i need your guy's help on what Radiators i should get and what size.

I will be Placing all of my components in a Switch 810. My Budget is $500 for the Watercooling alone. Would prefer something under $500.

All I need help with now is the Res,Pump, tubing,Fittings, and the rads. :) 

- Thanks In Advance. :D

You already have the 670T..........

I know you don't like reading stickies but 'what size radiator should I get' is covered in detail.

Are you going to be running a single 670, or 2? It kind of makes a big difference when you are trying to determine loop components, especially radiator displacement.

Yes, I've read the section of that plenty, I'm just trying to get confirmation that the rad will be efficient for the loop.

Yes, I will be running one 670.

Ok, I was just confused with this section of your post:

I wasn't sure which config you were going with. A single 360 rad of just about any make will be fine, even with some moderate overclocking. If you are planning to run stock with no plans to overclock, you could get by with a good, thick 240 rad and some good fans.
