Ok, would you recommend a water cooled case? Also would I need any extra cooling for your setup with the sli?

no. that motherboard is not sli. If you want SLI, you need this motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131517
It is the only one that fits two of those vid cards because of the huge hsf. And like aspire said, sli does not make a big difference and it is actually slower in some benchmarks.

No water cooling, it is very expensive and you only need it if you are going to do very heavy overclocking. the video cards come with a very good cooler, i dont think you need anything extra.

so wait why are you trusting 003 more than me?
it may be more prone but hard drives are rated to like 10 years
it may mean itll fail in 9
also while they may be noisier their not that noisy
for those gfx cards why dont you take my advice and just wc them all
the top card will overheat if their stacked like that
its called no air circulation

Ok, so your saying SLI is a waste of money? For playing games like Far Cry, Call of Duty and what not?

not a waste of money but it is not neccesary
your basically paying 300 more bucks for 5 fps imho not worth it
also water cooling is not that expensive did you not see the link i gave you
