1. This is not for the casual user, but intended towards the hardcore gamer.

And that's pretty much it.

What's better liquid cooling or Air cooling for both GPUs and CPUs?

Ummm... WHAT do you plan to do with it? For gaming, unless you have a Quad Fire,etc set up which pretty much need WCing due to space/heat, there really is not need for WCing unless going for a high OC or silence.

In general, for the hardcore gamer, that's want's Silence, Massive OC's, and Low temps at a reasonable price.

And I might be building a Trifire/Quadfire build, and i'm still undicieded whether it's gonna be 955/i7-920/930.

if you're cooling 3 or 4 videocards and the "massively OC'd" CPU, you might end up spending ~$800 just for the watercooling setup. WC is a great way to go, but costs $$ and has maintenance costs too. You have to tear down and clean regularly.
