Should I get a liquid cooled 980ti?

I'm looking to get a sub-2150 4k gaming pc. I looked on ComputerShopper, and they said that the liquid-cooled 980ti made a difference in 4k gaming. I'll want to buy a second 980ti eventually, and that might be tricky with the liquid-cooled one. Is it worth the $100 difference to get a liquid-cooled 980ti for 4k gaming?

A custom water loop would be better for SLI GPU in 4k, but more expensive. If you have the room in the case you could do the AIO ones but make sure you have room for both radiators.

Depends on how hot you run your cards with your overclock and how tight your case is.

Looking at your parts, you may be ok with adding more air flow but for SLI overclocking, watercooling probably runs the card smoother.
