That list looks pretty nice. I say that If you have the money for it and want to spend it on a rig that will last you quite awhile, do it!

It would be enough, but if your spending this much money already i'd just go all out and WC everything. Makes more sense to do it that way.

air cooling = win. water cooling seems like it would just be too much work. If your not going to try to overclock this beast to the limit I don't see a need for water cooling... unless your just want it to be a really quiet PC and look cool.
