Hello,

Theoretically 2 660 Ti's in SLI are more powerfull than a 780, BUT you are better off just going with the GTX 780.

Why?

1. SLI doesn not scale 100%
2.Not all games support it (or it is buggy when SLI is enabled)
3. going with 2 lower end cards limits your ugrade options.

and hey, The GTX 780 is a very powerfull card and you wont get any of the aformentioned prblems with a single gpu.

P.S in my experience, asus mobo's are very reliable and high quality

yup, that why i use asus mobo.. but i read a few minor problem with AI suite II as troublemaker almost asus P8Z77-V Deluxe user at amazon & newegg, also i read an article at Maximum PC Okt 2013 page 30 about testing 2 Gtx 660TI in SLI provide slightly better gaming experience than a single Gtx780, take 7 out of 9 benchmark test.. btw, i will consider your suggestion & thank you

Best solution

I haven't had any of the problems with SLi'd 660Ti's that PandaButtonFTW says you will have so I would ignore his post personally, AI suite II is a PITA though and best avoided.
