Hi I spent all night trying to figure out what cards to buy and going to loose more time trying to pick through all the details. Like bus speeds, GB, and if I should put my money to one card or two. Typically I play on just my 1080p monitor, but I don't update my PC very often right now I'm using a 9800 and a phenom black dual core. I am currently dropping over 1k in z77 intel board with i5 ivy and 750 cosair psu, water cooling h100 for cpu, new case. Two SSD 250g... (I can raid 0 that right?, I am usually a decade behind always) ANYWAY now that I looking at what video card I'm like meh I want something that will last a decade!

GTX780 or GTX 760 x 2 in SLI and lets call half a decade.

I guess I should add that I was wanting to keep the price down to 500.. unless it could be justified to get a way pricier setup because it will last way longer

for instance I can get two EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SIGNATURE2 LE 3072MB GDDR5 DVI mHDMI DP Graphics Card 03G-P4-2665-KR cards but the bus is only 192... is the only problem I might see in the near future ? I'm sure the 3gb is plenty right?

2x GTX760 sounds like a plan to me and X8 is not a problem as you can see here http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Intel/Ivy_Bridge_PCI...

Thanks I think I will go with one 760 and then upgrade later when the price drops a bit more... seems like a good choice
