I am in need of a CPU that will really help me in the future.
i am planning to buy a i5-3570k but if i save money and get a cheaper(one that will handle 2 760´s in SLI) i can maybe add some more stuff? what you guys think and recommend!

P.S im planning to but a A10 - 6800k insted but would that support SLI?

The 3570K is better suited for the task of handling two 760(s) in SLI. There is also a 4670K (Slightly better than the 3570K) but overclocks a bit worse) combo with a Z87 Extreme 6 that seems really appealing. The 6800K was meant to be more or less used standalone, or with a 6670 accompanying it in "Hybrid Crossfire X" (Does not work good). There is also the AMD FX 8350, which also features quite good performance. Both the 4670K or 3570K will suit your gaming needs perfectly.

get the FX-8320 8 cores processor , very similar performance to the 3570k in gaming and better than it
for video editing , for 150 ~ 160 $ and if you are looking for cheaper , then go for the fx-6300 it's perfect too

There is this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... + http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 8350 can handle GTX 760 SLI easily and is quite a good video editing processor. It is slightly worse overall in gaming to the 4670K\3570K but is superior in video editing.

The FX6300 will support SLI. I would overclock the FX6300 to around 4.2GHz to get the most out of the 760 SLI\770 SLI. A single card should do fine@Stock.
