So yeah, I'am gonna buy a gaming computer. But I'am to lazy to build one. So yeah, I will start to say that I will play on a Asus 24" 1920x1080p 144hz monitor. So two gtx 770's cost 988 dollars, while one gtx 780 costs 964 dollars. I don't know if I'am gonna sli my gtx 780 in about one year or so. So the systems I can choose between is:

CM storm stryker
Corsair TX 850W PSU
Intel Core i5-4670K
MSI Z87-G45 Gaming, Socket-1150
Cooler Master Seidon 120M
Crucial DDR3 BallistiX Sport 16GB KIT
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB PhysX CUDA
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB PhysX CUDA
Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB
WD Desktop Blue 1TB SATA

For the gtx 770 sli system it will cost 2618 dollars while the 780 system costs 2461 dollars.
And this is Norwegian prices! xD

And btw, is it something I have to change on my system to make it more future proof?

Definitely 770 SLI. The 780 is only 15% better than the 770, so 770 SLI will flatten a single 780 any day.

Read the thread again. Updating abit. Will it be worth to get 770 sli or gtx 780 and sli later. The gtx 780 system costs 2461 dollars and the gtx 770 sli costs 2618...

The 770 SLI will flatten anything at 1080p. You won't get 144fps in Crysis 3, of course, but I don't recommend spending the extra on the 780 SLI. It's really not worth it for the extra $400-500.

Okay. How "future proof" will that system be? Can I still play games at medium at maybe 5-6 years? or will I have to upgrade something? Does this system look nice or should I change anything?

There's absolutely no way of being able to tell. There could be a huge breakthrough in technology that renders all gear redundant (of course, highly unlikely). In 5 years with the 770 in SLI, I would guess you would still be able to play games at medium settings.

I know it's hard to tell. I will anyway be able to smash the most of the flash games today. Kidding bro. I mean fps games ;)

i would go with the 770 sli since it will easily be better.
