You'll need a 120x3 rad at a minimum for good cooling. Two 120x2 rads in series would be better.
D5 vario or DDC3.2 pump with the XSPC restop.
Swiftech micro res if you go with the D5 pump.
CPU waterblock. I don't use AMD so you'll have to figure that out.
Hose, clamps, some barbs
The Best hose right now is Primochill LRT tubing. Very nice stuff.

Get reading, you'll learn a lot with the stuff Shadow linked to.

Just FYI @ OP...you aren't really trying to cool your motherboard with WC...you will still need fans like usual, but cooling your northbridge, southbridge, MOSFETs or RAM isn't needed at all.

Nope, times have changed again. I'd still buy Tygon, but when the PC LRT is more flexible, comes in pretty colors, why buy Tygon?

And if the OP plans to Xfire in the future, best to make two seperate loops. You go big, you pay big.
