Default SLI Water Cooling.

What parts or prefab kit would one recommend for a SLI water cooling setup? Looking at spending no more than $250-$300

Hmmmm. CPU too? The Swiftech H20-220 Apex ultra + kit. It can be had for about $275 when on sale, and with that add a second GPU block, about $40 Extra.

Will those GPU waterblocks work with the 9600 GT? I was thinking about maybe doing a two rad setup. One Dual fan for the GPUs and a single for the CPU. I have a Coolermaster CM690 and was thinking about putting the dual rad up top where the two top 120mm exhaust fans are and the single on the back where the 120mm exhaust fan is.

Fitting a rad up there will be tight.... not much room.

Yes, I am pretty sure they work with the 9600GT, as it is essentially the same as a 8800GT, which uses the same mounting as the 7900 etc... all compatible.
