I don't think you will be happy with the temps. Snag a 77' Pontiac Bonneville without A/C heatercore form an auto parts store for around $20.

Definitely not, those are hot cards. If you want to cool them you are looking at a dual 120m radiator (or heatercore, but I like the rads better).

If you want to cool your processor and both cards, a dual radiator would still be fine, you would just probably need some decent fans, and make sure that its all external.

Internal is fine as long as you have decent airflow. Every system I've built has been internal. External systems make it a pain to move.

In tha wurkx-> In case PA120.3 triple rad, DD5 pump, CPU, NB and single GPU-> using Zalman Reserator resevour.

Im upgrading my Zalman Reserator w/ a new pump and some new blocks. Getting Maze4 cpu block.......still pondering upgrading to pelt system or not.
This will all be in case,minus the Reserator of course, which will be the main tank. Drip stop connectors make it easy to un-hook. I have a Aspire X-gamer, full tower.....It will not be hard, and should still be quite easy to move.....@~110lbs. LOL

Sounds like you've got some money into that system. You could have gone phase for that!

Was thinking...phase. Cant swallow the 600$ though. Maybe phase on the next rig....water is gonna be good enough for this one. I just need a new cpu block mainly. Zalman blocks are damn near impossible to take apart, once its dirty inside...its always dirty inside. Now its affecting my temps....so I figured if I gotta rip it open, might as well do some more work. The specs on the 120.3 say that its good for removing upto 450W of heat...that should be enough until I put the NB in the loop as well. Im running at 435mhz fsb so the NB warms up quite a bit.
