Default questions about fractal r3 modding for rad

i have bought the fractal r3 case and was wondering if i could mount a 4x120mm rad on the top. and what would be a suitable kit to go with the rad (CPU block, res, pump,etc)

im thinking of buying
CPU block option 1
Heatkiller CPU Rev 3.0 - Socket 1366 with Nickel and Chrome Plated Top

pump option 1
Swiftech MCP655 / D5 Vario 12v DC Pump - with Speed Controller

Fan option 1
Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120 mm Silent Case Fan - 57 CFM, 1850 RPM
Fan option 2
Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000 - 120x38mm Fan

Rad option 1
EK Waterblocks EK-CoolStream RAD-XT 480
Rad option 2
Swiftech MCR420-QP Quiet Power 4X120mm - Matte Black
Rad option 3
Feser X-Changer QUAD 480 Extreme Performance Radiator

this is what im aiming at something like this

and so far i have
case-fractal r3
mobo-GA-x58a-ud3r
gpu-ati 5770 xfx
psu-shaw viper 1200w
CPU-haven't yet bought(i7 950)


and im also wondering if the i7 950 is a good buy. mostly just a gaming rig and some 3d animations. also which graphics card should i upgrade to for maximum performance.

i think that rad is good for someone on a budget and it is overkill for a single i7 cpu loop. if im wrong correct me.
