The difference that you will see with SLI depends on games. Some run it better than others. For some games it does a big difference, for others it is worse than having only one card. But for most you'll see an interesting FPS boost.
Air cooling is good for entry-level, and mid-range overclocking.
With liquid cooling you can get one step higher.
With water cooling, everything will depend on your budget. Can range from $150 to... some crazy astronomic prices.

Ya see cause I can't decide if I should go gtx 780 hydro and just liquid cool or do the normal
Gtx780 I just want lower temps like 65 70 or lower but dont know if air could get me there with overclocking to

It all depends on what kind of overclock you want to reach.

Idk not like full out max but middle level I guess little higher maybe I jut want to maintain 90-100 fps lol in bf3-4 type games if I can

Some good air cooling should be enough for you.

Ok cool do you have and good recommendation on fans,cases. I wana buy the obsidian 900d prob overkill but that case so big could last for ever and allows for expansion

Noctua makes awesome fans. And I think that the 900D would be a good investment.
