Are you kidding thats only if you're water cooling like a Celeron or somethin man, Try these

Zalman Reserator Plus 1

Zalman Reserator 2

Their both amazing. Just choose the one you like.

ooh one more thing, you'll need an additional GPU waterblock cause you have 2 G-Cards.

Heres a good one:

GPU Waterblock

by the way, can you tell us in the end how much this all costs so we could all weep cause we could never afford it?

if your going to go watercooling, you should go with the watercooling 8800GTX, it doesnt help if you cant use the watercooling to cool down the two most important parts.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814143085

one of the most expensive video cards you can find. ;-)

I would agree with the card above. If you are going to go with water cooling make sure you get a good case for it. I have a Silverstone TJ-09 and I can't fit any of my rad's inside without doing some serious modifications. Also, check out www.frozencpu.com for watercooling parts.

Just to give you an idea
I had water cooling on my server before I got my new rig (specs are in sig, the only difference is I was running 7800GTX's in SLI).
CPU Overclocked @ 2.2: 35C idle 42C load
GPU1: 45 idle 50 load
GPU2: 47 idle 54 load
Water components:
MCP655 Pump
Swiftech Apogee Extreme CPU block
Swiftech MCW60 x2
2x 120 Radiators
dual floppy drive Resevoir

Thats just to give you a compairson if you decide to go with watercooling. If you need any help, I loved installing mine. I can't wait till I get my case built so I can put back in my water cooling. only this time I'm adding a dual 120 radiator to the loop and i only have one gpu to cool.

I would also stay away from peltiers, they do give you lower temps. but sometime you can get condensation build up. and thats not good around electricity.

Umm, you did order an OS.....right? :blink:

If you can cancel the killer network card do so, it's all marketing hype with nothing to prove itself. It's been proven that this card will actually have less FPS comapred to other leading, yet cheaper network cards, when it has it's gains they are so small that they aren't really worth noting. Overall cancel the network card if you can, since its cost doesn't show performance, if you can't or choice not to, doesn't seem like anyone will be out anything with a build that massive.
Also you could have done much better in the memory departement, memory can run at 1250 at stock clocks last I saw, finding a motherboard that'll handle this is another issues in itself, but the domitor 1066 would have been a much better choice.
-32-bit windows will only support 3.5GB of ram, you may want to look into 64-bit, however there is much less support for the 64-bit operating system.
-Something else this build lacks is surround sound and/or headset, the G7 gaming mouse and the G15 gaming keyboard.
-By the way there is very little support for that physics card, only 2 games have done the needed coding for it to date.
-Last but not least, it's going to be VERY tight fitting all that in there, I don't believe there'll be enough room for the physics, 2x 8800, your network card and sound card, remember the 8800 has a dual slot cooler and one of those will probably have to go because of lack of room. I'm curious is this will fit, please let me know if it will.
-Nice to see you choose blu-ray, to bad to see you choose a monitor without HDCP support. I'm sorry to say that you'll be unable to view Blu-ray content due to copyright issues. That monitor is awful, no HDCP support, low contrast ratio, remember your graphics will only look as good as the monitor can portray them (low contrast ratio). If you want a gaming computer, you have to have the 27" dell monitor or else two monitors side by side. Not to mention that monitor has no speakers, how are you going to hear audio?
Overall, not a bad build, just a few things that need adjustments I think (cough OS cough) hope he enjoys it :whistling:
James


P.S Remember to take pictures, I want to see this build, I'm sure many others here do as well.
