First I recomend not going with the 9800gtx its outdated and price to performance is bad. Second if your SLIing larger cards I would recomend a corsair tx750. Third for the water cooling I would make a seperate post in the cooling forum here as they will be better able to assist you in designing a loop. At your budget consider a GTS 250
