you've seen the light...thats good.

Waterblock: GeminiCool waterblocks are top performers. www.geminicool.com

Radiator: Heatercore from any auto parts store. you can buy then to specific sizes that fit your case. you can find them at eBay too.

Pump: MagDrive pumps are cool. Eheims are the most popular cause they're like cars (they can be repaired). You can get pumps at local aquarium shops or pet stores.

Hoses, hose clamps, hose barbs, JB Weld: home depot or any hardware store near you.

Reservoir: this is optional...it depends on your pump. if you want a reservoir you can use any plastic case with a lid.

you can get 120mm Fans and you can make a shroud for it out of cardboard. fairly simple.
