With a high resolution monitor and maximum graphics on the latest games it can be necessary in order to keep frame rates above 60fps. Is it worth it? well that's for you to decide.

If you're building a 3k rig than I'd say it is but it would be stupid on a 1,5k rig or even a 2k rig. Normally 25 to 40% of the total budget for a rig should be spent on GPUs but that's my opinion. On a lower budget, you wan't to stay closer to the 25% and move toward the 40% as your budget grows.

Would it be worth it on a 3k build that's liquid cooled in ur opinion

On a 3k build I would personally buy dual HD 6970 which would cost about 650-700$. If it wouldn't be watercooled, 580s all the way. Now what you need to ask yourself is if you need a 3k build. You could make a very nice watercooled build for 2k with a very good single card like a GTX 580 and that would max any game on any single monitor resolution except for badly optimized ones.

Sorry I meant the 570... Is 2 580 overkill and overpriced if I could just overlook the 570 or would the extra $300 be worth it
