Hi guys, thanks for the quick reply. My budget is around 800. And I have a cooler master haf x case. Also, what block do I need to cool the gpu? And what fittings and tubing do I need? I have a sli setup as well. How do I connect everything in the correct order as far as tubing is concerned with all the components?

Asus cards likely aren't going to be reference PCB, so stick to universals.

I wouldn't go with a Rasa/Raystorm kit with a CPU+2 GPU loop unless it was one of the pump upgrade kits. It's not that the X20 750 pump can't do it...it's a question of 'how long' can it push through more restrictive loops. Remember, it was designed mostly for CPU-only loop duty.

Ok, I had found a gpu water block on frozen CPU that was made for the card that I have which is the Asus gtx 680 direct cu 2 OC Edition. Could I do that upgrade pump kit and the two water blocks for the gpus? If so what fittings and tubing do I need? Also how do I connect the two gpu water blocks? For sli?

I would send an email to Frozen CPU's support staff, and tell them in detail your setup, and they can come up with an advice of parts you can get from them, all of which should be compatible with each other. Since you are a potential customer, they would be glad to help.
