I would need it for my 2 7970s and my 3570k. I don't even know where to start on this, but I would like some help in picking parts out. Is that a doable price or do I need to go higher?

Poke around on the water cooling forums on OCN and read all the stickies.

For starters, you need these parts for a loop:
GPU/CPU Blocks

$500-600 will get you a very nice custom loop.

That's a HUGE budget just to cool those parts up...

Is the price that way because it cools both CPU and GPU or...?

How much of performance increase can one expect with that kind of cooling solution? What about bang-for-buck?

There are lots of considerations you have to make such as:

how many rads, what type of rads (high fin vs low fin density, etc.), depending on whether you want high RPM or low RPM fans.

What your case can accomodate
