I'm building my first PC within the next week and need advice on parts. What should I change if needed? The PC will be used mainly for gaming, web browsing, and very little for homework.

i5 4670k
mobo: msi z87-g45 gaming
gpu:gtx 770
ram: 8gb
HDD: 1TB
SSD: 120gb
Power supply: SeaSonic 650w

I hope you ment I5 4670K. The I5 400 series are all mobile parts. Anyway, what 2 monitor set up are we talking about? Dual HD, Dual Full HD, dual 1650x1020s, dual 1920x1200? Anyway a GTX 770 won't be able to drive dual Full HD on Ultra in every title. But if it is medium, I think you are set for 2 or so years.

For multiple monitors , i would suggest 3/4 gbs of gpu memory. (770 has 2GB and 4GB versions)

You should then consider something like a 7970 6gb edition or sli of 770 2gb...

Or a single 780. Better option than two 770s. I always recommend single GPU config always to avoid hassle.

Your cpu is not resposible(mainly) for the image you will see at your monitors, your gpu is. Updating to i7 will not work...
