If you stack 4 double wides in next to each other, air cooling will have a hard time breathing. Especially on the 590's. Single 590 works just fine air cooled

Undoubtedly true :) I have rebuttal to this :)

If I had 4xGTX570's I would concur that air cooling would NOT be sufficient :-P

I got the go ahead from the "finance director" here at home so ordered everything from Newegg except for the OS. Ordered Windows 7 from Amazon since I had a $50 gift certificate from my birthday. Hardware should be here on Monday and hopefully Windows will be here on Tuesday. If needed I have a copy of Ubuntu I can slap on there for a day or two until the OS gets here. My first build so hopefully it doesn't turn into a smoke machine.
