    Watercooling is definitely an overkill/not needed with this build.
    Hyper Evo 212 should suffice.

    Er, close, but no. For simplicity it works in a sense like that, but the second card never performs at 100%. Any time you go SLI/Xfire you are only upping performance by around 50-75% depending on the card. And usually its better to get one powerful card than 2 lower end cards, especially given AMD's scaling issues are still prevalent.

    You are pretty much right, but to say that 2 cards = 2x performance is not truly correct. If price is not the issue, its usually best to go for the single card than having 2 due to all of the extra issues that SLI/XF can bring. Including in some cases negative performance.

    Nvidia are definitely striving for the perfect scaling point with the 760. Best SLi scaling I've ever seen with at least 80% increase in performance in most cases.

    Otherwise, no, as the money can better be spent upgrading core components.

    My System:
    Intel i7 4770S
    16 GB (8x2) Corsair Vengeance Pro @2400MHz
    ASUS Maximus VI Formula
    OCZ Vector 256GB SSD & 5x Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD
    Dual GTX 760 SLI
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
    Thermaltake Level 10 GT
    Thermalright Silver-Arrow
    why 4770s not "k"

    Lower power consumption on the S compared to the K, with only a very marginal drop in performance. Not much point in using a K unless you're going to fuck with the unlocked multi's.

    Try switching things around a bit and try to fit a 770 or a 780 in the build. 7970 works too. The X60 series of NVIDIA cards have always been for low-medium range only

    The GTX 760 is an exceptional card, and if you didn't notice this is a medium range build.
