Higher end Build


Aug 8, 2012
OK so i have built this pc with the following parts and plan on buying the two 3d monitors later but was wondering two things

This was my first build and would be my first ever water cooling attempt thanks!

----Is my gpu able to handle 3 1080p screens two of which are 3d but ill be using mostly one 3d screen for gaming, meaning the other two screens would be on the desktop.

----Should i water cool this rig if so what would be the advantages of it then it current air cooled rig
