My only concern is the graphic. I haven't looked into the graphic card world for a few months and I know alot happened in those months.
I believe that card does not support 3 monitors, is that correct? It needs a second one and Crossfire to enter the realm of 3 monitor gaming?
Also, I strongly believe the water-cooling is not necessary at this point, but that's a decision that's entirely up to Gates...
The 920 is absolute garbage (plus there have been a few leaking ones that have destroyed systems, check OCN) i had one before i built my own loop put the extra money into a 7950 and build your own loop eventually it is a much better route
