i have a choice about buying an geforce 760 2Ways-SLI, Or an 780 graphic-card. Which one would give me most power over my computer. Most for gaming but love to learn more about editing and stuff, thats why i have created this build:

AMD FX 8-Core 8350
ASUS Sabertooth R2.0
850W GX CoolerMaster
256GB Raid0SSD
1TB HDD (Maybe Raid0, just to increase the performance)
1TB HDD
16GB 1600 Consair RAM
Antec h20 Cpu Water cooling

Two 760's would be about 35% faster, but you have more heat, more noise. Plus, with the 780, if say in a year you want more performance, add another, with 760's you couldn't really do that since 3 way SLI doesn't scale all that well and 4 way is utterly worthless.

If you are into overclocking, the 760 already has a pretty high factory overclock, so you can't get much more out of it. 780's overclock very well, its pretty easy to get another 20% performance out of them.

What you go with depends on your usage and how long you plan to use it for. But whatever you go with you'll need to overclock that processor, its alot of GPU power for a CPU to deal with.

What do you mean abut it's alot of GPU power for my CPU to deal with? It's the best AMD prossecor on the market, I can't get Intel, (Long Story) But what do you mean about that?:/

780 and 760 SLI are pretty damn fast, if you pair it with a processor at stock clocks it will bottleneck severely in CPU intensive games (especially in games that have poor multi core support, since you are on AMD), the processor will run up to 100% usage leaving little room for the GPU to work, so it gets low usage. At that point frame rates won't be appreciably better that a cheaper GPU solution.

I have thinked about buying the 780, then when it's not good enogh i can use SLI, on the GTX 780.

Asus DirectCUII, EVGA ACX or Gigabyte Windforce are the best that aren't stupidly expensive.
