My System Specs

Red face New to Water Cooling

Hi folks. I haven't decided when to do it yet, but since purchasing a pair of 5970s it seems that it may be time to consider it. I'm a tradesman so putting it together so be easy enough. What I'd like to know is what I should be cooling. Should cooling the cards be enough, as everything else ran in the mid 30s under air. Should I use 2 separate systems, or maybe 1 pump and reservoir? I don't mind spending a bit more for an upper end system. My current system is about to go to core i7, the case is a Cooler Master Cosmos S 1000. My psu is a Corsair 1000 HX. With 2 5970s,4 HDDs, should I consider another psu of some sort for the water cooling unit(s)?

I would think the system would have to be external. I've seen some pretty cool looking systems but have no idea on them. Please help a beginner,

Thanks.
