Default AlphaCool Ready2Go Stacker HELP/ADVICE

This is my first post and opportunity to get into water cooling.

My 1st Question: Is a LARGE Passive Radiator better than a smaller Active/Fan Radiator?

Please keep in mind I would to cool an AMD 4800+X2 & (2) 7800 GTX 512MB in SLI mode.

I know that I will have to add 2 more waterblocks for the gfx cards... with this information in mind - please take a look at the following 3 Stacker Ready2Go setups from AlphaCool.

Active > Passive; 99% of the time, the slighest bit of airflow over a radiator will make a large difference.
