Liquid cooling and up to 500W, 3 additional 8 pin PCIe power required...

Sure not for all.

From what I've read it will be a limited edition, probably like the Asus Mars II was, Asus was allowed to make only 1000 of those by Nvidia, Nvidia threatened Asus with a loss of gpus if Asus made more than 1000 cards, Asus made a better GTX 590 card, there's one on ebay I think for $2099.00. So that water cooled card could be expensive. Good luck.

Possibly better off waiting for the GTX 780/790
