This may be a noob question but could I oc the gtx 770 to get more fps then a gtx 780? I really don't want to spend the extra $ and I play on a 1080p montior with Crysis 3 on max. So what gpu should I get? I am also considering a 7970 ghz but I never got a amd gpu so I'm not sure.
ALSO, does the asrock extreme z87 6 come with wi-fi and bluetooh? If not, any good z87 mobo's that do?

I would say that the 780 would be a lot better still, newer architecture along with more RAM, steam processors etc
Although, at 1080p I'm pretty sure a 770 would more than suffice for most games though the 770 would not give you 60fps on max in Crysis 3, the 780 MIGHT but I am really not sure.
Whether or not the 780 is worth the extra dollar is up to you.
The GTX 770 and GTX 780 do not use the same chipset. The GTX 770 is a refined GTX 680 (literally). The GTX 780 uses the Titan chipset which is a totally different GPU. Simply overclocking a GTX 770 (even heavily) will not get you 780 performance.
The question is whether the performance gain, and the resolution you play at, is worth $250 more. Especially at 1080p the GTX 780 probably does not make much sense. Not unless you just have $650 you want to throw away.
EDIT: If Crysis 3 is the most important thing then the GTX 780 is the better option. It is way more than you need for just about any other game though!
Even a 780 cannot max out Crysis @1080p with acceptable frame rates, look at SLI or GTX 690!
Off-Topic: I have a GTX 590 OC'ed with 3GB of VRAM and an i7-3770K in my current build, and I get a stable 36-60 (VSync) FPS in Crysis 3 at the highest settings possible in 1080p, except the antialias is a setting lower than the highest possible setting.
But, on-topic, jerreece is probably your best answer.
