If you are craving the performance increase then go for it, but in my honest opinion stick it out with the one unless you painfully need more fps. Double cards on air do get hot, and noisy. I think i am an avid supporter of no more than two monitors (only for windows productivity) and a nice powerful single slot GPU, unless you are SLI under water.
All in all SLI i recommend if you NEED the performance increase. Triple monitors i do not.
You are right, a heavy liquid cooler is much better than 3 more monitors, but still wanted to feel, but nevermind.
Noise was never my concern, I might sound crazy but I love the 7000rpm sound of my stock AMD fan.

I am going for Piledriver, I have faith in AMD, they pulled a rabbit out of their hats by their Phenom IIs.

I recently took my M5A99X so am not going to shift to intel instantly, if Piledriver fails everyone, then I might think of migrating to the successor of ivy bridge, and intel is really fast in releasing processors so it wouldn't be a problem. The main concern I have is getting absolutely identical 560Tis since they would look real good.
