Marker. Air tank. Paint. Hopper. Mask.

Yup. That's it. If a tank says "Low Pressure" or LPA, don't get it. The X7 can't run on them. Other than that, you're good to go.

No like I know all of that, I want to know what I need to get the most out of the system. Like what are they differences between 3000/4500 psi and the different size ci tanks, if a tank comes with out a regulator, do I need one? Is there a different remote line for HPA than co2?

4500 psi carries more air than 3000 psi. The higher the CI the more air it will hold. You will need a regulator on your tank for it to work. If it doesn't have one you can't screw it into your marker. You can use the same remote.

Ight this was helpful. One more dumb question, so both the psi and ci determine how much air it can hold. What is the most common config between the both?

There is no common configuration. Most people carry a tank between the 45ci and 92ci sizes, but others have been known to exist. Most will suggest 4500psi, since more and more fields are going to that, and it increases your shots by 50% at no additional size, and almost negligible weight.

Since I'm guessing you're running remote the tank size won't really matter much. A lot of people that run only remote get a 92 ci tank or bigger. It's all personal preference.

4500 psi tanks hold 50% more air than 3000 psi tanks with pretty much no difference in weight. So if you can afford one I suggest you get a 4500 psi tank.

For 3000psi tanks multiply the CI by 10 to get your average shot count. For 4500psi tanks multiply the CI by 15. From that, you can base the size of tank you need on how much you shoot. For those who don't shoot tons of paint you can get a tank size that will last you all day. Alternatively you can get a tank size that lasts you a game or two. It's all about how much you want to carry and how often you want to be refilling.

If your sure about getting a HPA system definitely make sure the tank you buy is a carbon fiber tank. While in my opinion carbon fiber tanks are still heavy, it won't be anywhere near as heavy as a steel/aluminum tank. It's worth the jump in price for carbon fiber.
