I don't think you need liquid cooling.
You have single video card that can be cooled on air.
And your proccy can hit high GHz on air.

No. You never "need" liquid cooling.
It is a chioce made by people who are big on overclocking, or want a quieter system without all the fan noise.

You can buy a cheap watercooling setup and get as good as air cooling temps. Or you can spend about $350+ for a decent rig to WC your CPU and GPU.

You can do almost as good on air for under $150 with really good fans, coolers and none of the hassle of watercooling.

One of the most current and best written general guides for watercooling.
