Hello everyone, I'm going to buy this setup tomorrow, these settings will work for 3d animations or modeling like 3ds max, maya, or other apps? Do I need any additional fans for this setup like a water cooling system?

For those apps, don't get a gaming GPU. Get one of those Quadro or FirePro cards.

Although professional cards do provide greater performance for 3d rendering, they usually have a price tag to match! As long as the software is comparable with the gaming GPU, the GTX 570 should be a well rounded cheaper alternative.

Ok, so I'm guessing I'm pretty much set right? Do I even need a water cooling system or is that optional for this setup? I don't want to be expierancing any cpu overheating or other components. Any more opinions before I make this final purchase?
