There are quite a few options but the best of the best would be bitspower in terms of fittings, some good brands which are a bit more friendly to the old wallet would be Primochill, Monsoon, XSPC, and EKWB.

Well, go with PETG tubing not acrylic as for fittings it depends on your preference, you'll need a heat gun and a flexible insert to keep the tubing from collapsing. As for high cost, that's unavoidable hobbies can be expensive. You're probably looking at a few 100USD

I just built my first water cooling loop in my computer.

 

I used Bitspower PETG, Hardware Labs radiators, EKWB pump, reservoir, blocks and fittings, but also threw in some 90 degree Bitspower fittings, too. IMO the Bitspower fittings are a little bit better than the EKWB---they seemed to fit a bit tighter, but I've had no leaks from any of my tubing and I'd DEFINITELY recommend anything I used to the next person. This forum was TONS of help when it came to selecting quality components.

EK fittings fit more snugly on their own hard tubing. OP make sure you get the hard tubing and fittings from the same manufacturer for best the best fit. Pun intended :)
