Not even a might on that, getting 3 blocks alone is half the budget. Still have to add in 2 rads, pump, and fittings.

Well, it depends if he wants to OC or not, two $50 GPU only blocks, a Rasa, a 360 rad, tubes, and a res/pump combo.... yea that's gonna be over $300.

Sorry bro,

You will be fine with the GPUs air cooled though, mine are, but you NEED that airflow.

that really depends on which cards you have and how far apart they are based on your board layout.

Updating your system information in your User CP would help us answer that better.

You'll probably be ok. Your cards will run pretty hot, but it won't be so bad that they stop working.

Stock cooling is designed to take the temps, if not and the cards break, you should RMA, since they're operating within design/mfg specification... Though I know they do get hot, but that's what fan profiles are for, as the temps get hotter, the fans wind up to keep it below max temp. If your case is stifling, then you may have problems with 2 cards, especially since I don't think the Nvidia cards exhaust out the back of the case. At least with the AMD/ATIs, they intake from the inside of the case and exhaust out the back, though when being pushed, they sound like jet engines.
