That would be my approach. Since I set your budget back a bit, add the graphics blocks as affordable (although that is a decent price I'd say)

The kit comes with everything needed to cool a CPU including tubing (8') and compression fittings for the tubing which I believe are 7/16 ID - 5/8 OD but you would need to reference that elsewhere to be sure - I know I've seen it before but I can't find those numbers

I would actually skip the CPU at this point and just go straight into water-cooling the GPU's.
Your budget wont let you cool both of them, so what I would do is water-cool the top one and overbuild the loop so including the 2nd one is just going to be a matter of buying and installing a block for it.

The CPU would be an easy upgrade from there.

I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure that would be a more expensive route since I have not been able to source the parts cheaper than in the kits

You would be straining the budget to take my option yes, but at least this way he isn't throwing out his existing H80i.
