I’m thinking about buying a new graphics card and I wonder if I should get a water cooled or air cooled

What watercooling do you mean?

Open loop or aio?

 

Also which card do you want to get?

So open loop then.

That's a fine card, also a good option if you like to have warranty even with a custom loop.

Keep in mind you need to buy all other components (if you don't have them already): radiator, pump, reservoir,...

I don’t care much for the cards with the blocks on them already as it just makes resale a bit difficult later. But it is a great convince to throw the card in a loop. 
But they are rarely offered on a board I’d actually want to pay that price for.

So, air is a better cooling solution 

What does better mean to you?
