I want to run Triple Monitors, but I do not know which will preform better in the long run. I intend to game on 3 monitors on high settings, recording with FRAPS, video editing and capturing off of my console as well.

Sli 4gb 770's is my recommendation. 4gb because of the high res and future proofing.

If I do go with 2 SLI 770s, I'm worried about the power consumption. I'm using a Corsair AX860i right now, but I don't know if I'd need to upgrade to the 1200i to compensate for the added power usage.

Don`t worry, the recommended PSU for SLIing 770s is 750 watts, you will be fine with the AX860i. 4GB will also be perfect for multiple monitors. My only suggestion would be if you can wait for the coming price drop due to AMD Rx 2xx series all coming out in a couple of weeks.

I do plan on using 3 1920x1980 monitors to game on. So I do feel that the extra boost is needed for both now and some slight future proofing.

I realized and corrected myself, I did not read your initial post before answering, something I should have done.

I appreciate your reply none the less. So even with 2, 4GB cards, the AX860i is enough? Or at that point is the 1200i a better choice?

850 is just fine for overclocked CPU and twin overclocked 770s..... which will be faster and cheaper than Titan.....

Thermal and Power Specs:
98 C - Maximum GPU Temperature (in C)
230 W - Graphics Card Power (W)
600 W - Minimum Recommended System Power (W)
One 8-pin and one 6-pin - Supplementary Power Connectors


So 600 for system w/ 1st card + 230 for 2nd = a very conservative 830 watts

as for 2 GB vs 4GB .... these tests should make the answer pretty clear.

The recommendation from Nvidia is to have a PSU strong enough to output 750 watts. The AX860 is a 860w, 80+ Platinum PSU, the 860i is more then enough.

Two GTX 780's are now the price of a single Titan and with good drivers, in some cases, the 780 has outperformed the Titan without overclocking. I would buy 2 780's.
