Do you need professional graphics cards or will consumer grade cards work fine? also do you need any 3d power or just need the 8 screen estate? if you want it to be silent with water cooling you might need to spend more then $800 but you might be able to get by without the cooling.

No 3d required,.....any graphics card work wont be playing any video games on it anyhow....just need to be silent.....

i am open for suggestions how much more it will cost to bring in liquid cooling....

thanks for the reply though.....

Never seen an 8 monitor card.. the highest ive seen was an ATI 5870 with 6 mini displayports. It looks like its been discontinued. For 8 monitors youd probably want to get a crossfire/sli solution anyway, especially at that resolution.

For watercooling the cpu, you could get a closed loop like the corsair h50 or whatever. For a cpu/gpu or cpu/gpu/gpu loop its going to cost you, and youll probably want a large case specially meant for watercooling.

They also sell some PC sound insulation material thats worth a look into. its pretty cheap.
