As mentioned earlier, a 1440p monitor would be a great move,
even if it meant getting rid of one graphics card.

Don't have much exp. with watercooling, but IF you're considering
buying 2x 780 ti's you're gonna need another rad. Defo a 360mm.
The Fractal Design R2 is great for WC setups and can fit 240+360
with a bit of modding. The XL version is a full tower = more room+less hassle

Wouldn't bother with the Poseidons IMO.

Awesome looking board, but it's overpriced and the crosschill waterblock
is made of anodized aluminium which is a big no no.

I think I have decided on sli 780's. The $400 for the ti model just isnt worth it. This is what I have come up with. I changed the board from earlier suggestion because of its reputation. If you guys have more input on why it would be good to go with another board please let me know. Also, I just through in the asus 780's. If there is a better model, please let me know.
