760 SLI w/ FX-6300?

I bought the GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard for the purpose of SLI gaming. I plan to buy a single 760 and in a year or so another to SLI. But I'm being told 2 760's and SLI isn't worth it? I'd like to be able to get maximum performance and max out next-gen games at 1080p... But the reason I considered SLI over a single card was because I don't want to have to make a new build anytime in the next 5-6 years. Is the FX-6300 w/ 760 SLI really not worth the price? I mean cause if I have to make a new build I'd keep them both so that in 5 years or so I can add them into a new rig without having to buy new GPUs

Also I currently have a used PNY GeForce 210 1GB DDR3, would it be better to go for a single 760? Or to just buy another 210 and SLI those? Idk if 210's SLI even match close to a single 760

nevermind the 210 SLI that's a dumb question, of course they don't match a single 760

The 210 can SLI ? LOL!!!!!! No thats not possible. Even if yes , it will take atleast 20 such to match a GTX 760.
Also the 2 760's are worth it. And why a different build for new GPU ? I say rather sell the older GPU ( GTX 760 ) and buy something from the GTX 8xx series when there are out. Also , I would recommend a FX 8320/8350 as its 2 cores and faster clock will be really better for avoiding bottlenecks. And get a better mobo , the one you choose isn't good. Or your much better off buying a better GPU like the GTX 770 HoF , in the first place.
P.S , if you could provide more details , by answering the questions in this questionnaire sorta thing , it would help me and others to solve your queries.

In my experience, SLI is always "worth the price" .... as long as each card is above the $140 price point (650 Ti Boost and up).... yes they produce alil more heat and use a lil more power but the fps to cost ratio is way way lower than a single card of comparable performance

http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/4632/6/geforce-gtx-700-...

$650 GTX780 gets 95 fps in BF3 to the $520 twin 760's 114 fps .... 20% more performance for 80% of the cost .... Return on Investment = 150%
$650 GTX780 gets 91 fps in Crysis 2 to the $520 twin 760's 96 fps .... 5% more performance for 80% of the cost .... Return on Investment = 132%
$650 GTX780 gets 104 fps in Dirt 3 to the $520 twin 760's 106 fps .... 2% more performance for 80% of the cost .... Return on Investment = 127%
$650 GTX780 gets 56 fps in FC3 to the $520 twin 760's 56 fps .... 18% more performance for 80% of the cost .... Return on Investment = 147%
$650 GTX780 gets 46 fps in Metro 2033 to the $520 twin 760's 56 fps .... 22% more performance for 80% of the cost .... Return on Investment = 152%

Only issue i have had to deal with since 5xx series was BF3 beta didn't have an SLI profile for about 2 weeks

What about the Galaxy GTX 780 HoF ? It beats the Titan with quite ease and has the same 780 tag + premium OC features + amazing cooler.

If you want your PC to last that long, I suggest you grab two HD 7950's instead, along with a more powerfull processor.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

These HD 7950's are significantly cheaper than the GTX 760's.
Pair them with a FX 8320 and you're done.

Or, you could also get the cheapest SLI Compatable LGA1155 motherboard and pair it up with a Xeon E3 1230 V2.

I already have the GA-990FXA-UD3 and the Fx-6300 cause I heard the 6300 is superior in gaming performance. I'm considering buying a single 7950 until I can afford another and to overclock the 6300.

I don't know how people on youtube are doing it... they're SLI/Crossfire with the 6300 no bottleneck, if i have to overclock I will. What kind of cooling do you suggest?
