Well Gigabyte’s GTX 980 WaterForce 3-Way SLI Kit has hit NewEgg and listed on NewEgg, for the price of $2999.99. Sorry if you just spilled your drive on you keyboard.

So what does that kind of money buy you? The GTX 980 WaterForce 3-Way SLI Kit is a set of three GTX 980 graphics cards that comes with an external liquid cooling box. The idea is that you place this box on top of your tower PC and route the water tubes for the graphics cards into your PC through the top optical drive bay with an adapter. Inside the external water box are three 120 mm radiators with fans, each of which cools a single graphics card.

Once installed,  you now have three liquid cooled graphics cards, meaning they won’t suffer from suffocation like air-cooled graphics cards may in multi-GPU setups, and the heat is dissipated outside of the PC enclosure, meaning that it won’t affect the other components in your PC. Besides pricy, this is  rather bulky solution.

The GTX 980 graphics cards in the kit are clocked at 1228 MHz base, with a GPU Boost 2.0 frequency of 1329 MHz. The 4 GB of memory on each card runs at the reference frequency of 7.0 GHz. To power them, Gigabyte recommends that you have at least a 1200 W PSU.

IF you get this setup for Xmas, we here at ToT are sure you will have the best frame rates of any gamer in your hood, heck even your state.
