the reason I ask is that if I get a gtx 690 could my current rig hold it. and I have been really wanting to try dual cards not with a gtx 690 that's over kill but f I where to do dual cards would I need the water cooling and if so what else would I have to change to my computer.

Your PSU can't handle dual GPUs high-end.

Anything above GTX 660 would be a nice addition of performance I'd say, going below wouldn't really make a major difference.

Watercooling wouldn't be needed if you were to get dual GPUs. Watercooling is only for those WHO demand the very best, it's the luxury of gaming.

So if i was to put dual gtx 680 and an upraded psu i would be ok. granted I would have to change my Mother board its only rated for crossfire x but I like Nvidia better not one for change.
