    8800GTX SLI is not much better than Quad SLI 7950GX2. The important difference is that 8800GTX has DirectX 10 hardware support, which will mean improved performance and visuals in DirectX 10-based games. However, there aren't any DirectX 10-based games out or coming out anytime in the immediate future. I'd wait until some come out and then upgrade as prices come to a more reasonable level.

    I saw your pics and I am amazed at all the options you can tweak compared to my NF570 board!!! Your proc seem pretty warm though, what kind of cooler do you have? I have a CM-blue-ice North bridge cooler along with my arctic cooler freezer7 pro and my temps are way lower, even at +.3 GHZ OC the proc is at 30-31C and my mobo is at 32-33C (not under load).
    Mobo...............Asus P5N-SLI (NF570)

    CPU................Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 2MB L2
    HDD................Hitachi 160 GB IDE

    PSU................BFG 650W (on sale for 80$, 80$off!!)

    Overclocked somewhat w/Arctic cooler freezer 7 pro

    18" viewable KDS CRT monitor (I'll upgrade when it dies)
    about 8 80MM fans and I sleeved most of the cables
    It would be quiet but I have 1 noisy Vantek that blows like a turbine. A crappy generic case which with cammo paint and holes all over.

    I know nothing about water cooling, but I do know that you probably wanna get one w/ a GPU cooler also, I heard that its not worth it to get the CPU cooler alone. I think that Gigabyte cooler looks fine though, I recommend corsairs nautilus or something like it for neatness, or you could DIY which is cheaper and sometimes a lot better than kits. I think you might not have good ventilation in the case or your voltages are wrong. You can tweak voltages manually or make sure that you have a few fans, the door of my comp has5 on it and when I get a new one I will get more.
