  1. Best answer
    1. Yes, my brother have dual channel motherboard which has 2 ddr2 slots and 2 ddr 3 slots.
    2. You can't get but you can make it. Custom built water cooling systems are expensive (about 200 dollars), a little bit hard to make but very effective. But make sure that you really need that.
    3. No you don't. Water cooling is just 2 fans and some water circulation, which aren't very power demanding.
  2. 1. Yes most modern motherboards support DDR3 out of the box.
    2. Yes but you will be paying big money for a full custom liquid loop. Those systems aren't cheap.
    3. What wattage PSU you buy depends on how many GPUs you plan to run. A single GPU will be around 500 - 550W. A second GPU will be around 750 - 850W. Three or more will require around 1K+.
