I have read till im blue in the face on this. I will just ask the experts on here. What is the best option pound for pound related to performance. I don't need the most expensive, but money isn't a deciding factor in my choice at this point.

770x2 sli, one single 780gtx, tital, MSI lightening... Which 780 GTX etc. Looks like 650 is the price range on a single 780, 750 Lightening, 1000 titan, 450 770..

So 770 sli around the same as a titan, 780 gtx is not much less performance though.. To much to think about someone jus tell me what too buy, lol.

Titan is a waste of money no matter how you look at it. 770 SLI is certainly faster than a 780, probably about 50% faster, but it leaves you with no upgrade path and is more expensive from the get go. It's really up to what you want.

SLI 770 if you plan on sticking with them til they are worthless, or plan to sell them, 780 if you plan to SLI later.

Which 780 would you recommend? The Lightening at 750 or a evga / MSI gamer edition 780gtx at 650?

I would recommend the two MSI 770 GTXs. You don't the absolute top of the line right when it comes out, when it will become less expensive fast when the next one comes out. The MSI 770s get very, very good cooling compared to any other setup on the 770s. Plus, you have 2 GPUs, which will give you 1GB more of GPU memory total than the 780, and will help spread the workload of 2+ monitors. The 770 is also faster than the 780. In my personal opinion, the two 770s would be the best choice for performance and bang for your buck.

Hope this helps. :)

SLI doesn't double effective VRAM, it remains equal to one card.

Shoot, I forgot to add the detail of running three monitors.

3 monitors? Titan. You need the vram depending on the games you play.
