Eh...some people like watercooling because it looks cool. I wouldn't mind having a cheap ass set so long I had some cool glowing tubes.

I'd rather just buy the tubes and shove LED lights in them.

Or buy UV reactive tubes and put some cold cathodes in my case.

Plus, it would be a cool way to run the wires.

I think so. SSD is the future man. Chances of it failing are much less than that of a raptor.

The screen size doesn't matter. What matters is the resolution. There isn't going to be a difference with a 24" screen running at 1900x1080 and a 36" screen running at the same resolution.
