Would it matter if I water cool it, or does it not really make sense? Honestly I just thought if liquid was better than air then I will cool everything liquid.

A plus sized power suppy bumps the total PC build to $3,637.51

If you can spend alittle more
Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card (Black/Silver) (Eng) - Retail
That is a bit more expensive and I am not sure I see sufficant reason for the external box. It also doesnt have a 1/4 inch input jack for my guitar. Thanks for the recomendation though.

One thing not to skimp on is the psu. Why would you be complaining about that anyways? Look at your build.

Oooooo why not get an Antec P190 case (superb case) and scrap the power supplies installed with two Corsairs 620 Watts.
