a descent gpu water block will cost u 50-100 bucks, this is one is essentially a water cooled ramsink as well... thats probably worth at least $120-150

not to say that isnt rediculous... but its about the market avg.

Oh, so that is a pretty good deal then.

But ****, still. Besides the Fire gl cards made for video editing and whatnot, that has to be the most expensive video card I've seen.

I've always wondered, how much maintenance would water cooling require?

Mine, 0. But I should really change the water and tubes. And while I'm at it a custom kit, but meh. I slight inconvenience that makes the PC really cool looking.

In the UK that is $1150.

I recently cleaned out my water cooling system and there was a lot of crap in a few tubes right at the end, not to mention the waterblock. It doesn't really require that much work and as previously said makes your pc look awsome!
