In that case, you might be better off getting an ssd.

I like how you edited to get rid of the slightly better temperature part. Haha, water cooling is really only expensive at first, after ya get your radiator and fans, you only need to upgrade some blocks, and most water blocks will only need new backplates. Water cooling is enthusiast cooling in my opinion.

Lol Well I would have all three as well if I had the same GPUs you do. SLI GTX 580s are fraking expensive. Otherwise I would have all three, and if I got a 6970 I wouldn't get another card just three monitors an SSD and WC. But I went all high end when I made my computer. Best monitor I could find, best gpu, etc. So I am paying for it now when I have to fork out more to upgrade. lol



Think I am just going to keep this monitor.


So I have a question. Get another GTX 580 or an SSD and WC? Which brings all the problems of WC and SSD that I have mentioned before in longer then they should be rants.



Thanks all for reading this rep to everyone!

But at that point I didn't know I would be going multi monitor or would have gone ATI and a cheaper monitor. lol

Heres another route you can take, water cool your current 580 and don't buy another. Under water your current 580 will completely annihilate any game, and if you go water now you'll e ready for Kepler when it comes out. This is the route I took when the 580's came out and I debated selling my 480.

So few routes what do you guys think.

1)
-WC CPU (RASA 360 probably)
-SSD
-Keep Monitor

2)
-Same as 1 except send back monitor.

3)
-Keep Monitor
-GTX 580
-Ultra Kaze 3000RPM
-Fan Controller

4) Any variation you think. Just trying to explore all opinions and options and as my anxiety is starting to kick in I need not think more about it. Sorry but that is why I post so many threads about decisions, getting others inputs lessens my load of worry about it which makes me rather stressed and panicky.

If you can then I would do:
Keep Monitor
SSD
GTX 580

You're satisfied with the temps on your current build so lets get you some extra screen space and video card for gaming performance. The SSD can help your increase your boot up performance and satisfy your need for speed.
