So my motherboard doesn't support sli which will be better, changing my mobo and get 2 gtx 760 sli or keep the mobo and get a single gtx 780, my motherboard is Intel dh61ww
Also how much psu I need for 760 sli?

Thank you

Single Powerful Card is Better & more stable than SLI or Crossfire . but if you have Stable Driver & good condition SLI can run much better for you . but not always .

SLi system will need much higher PSU . will produce higher Heat . wont always give you what you want . because not all games support sli or run fine with sli or Crossfire system . SLI system might not be stable & cpu bottleneck can hold it back unless its good quadcore ivy bridge cpu . but if the condition is right it can ROCK .

GTX 780 is WOW for gaming . it will just rock

;D Thx tonyVarin . nice article . SLI is more suitable for WOW monitors & is tempting option if you have the budget & the right condition . other wise GTX 780 by it self is too powerful .

by the way if you dont have a veryHigh resolution & XXL monitor :D  then SLI is just a waste of money & power & you might face a little bit of a bottleneck .

my GTX 760 chews Metro LL on everything maxedout but ( SSAA on 2x ) . so imagine what GTX 780 can do :)  .

Best solution

I think 2 way SLI are pretty optimized these days and are well supported by most games.
The GTX 760 SLI benchmarks proves that at least... even beating 780s and the Tiitan.
And I've never really seen many bad results w/2 way SLI as compared to 3 or 4 way .
4 way SLI for example are way less optimized, that a 2 way can outperform it.

I watched few videos and did some research and these are the infos I've gathered.

I think 760 SLI is pretty worth it, considering the fact that it would only cost around $500 and it delivers enough performance well worthy of its price.
Here's a benchmark video from Newegg (@ 9:08):

: You can clearly see it beats the 780 by quite a lot.
So it's either you go 760 2 way . Or IF you have the money, get 770 or 780 and SLI that instead. But that would go way over $1300 +
You decide if it's worth the price. But it's only worth it to get a higher model if you'll SLI it as well.

Oh and speaking of 760 , I recommend the MSI Twin Frozr model.
It has great cooling and factory OCed.
Plus, it has great overclocking capabilities.
Benchmark from 2 websites proved it was almost on par with the 770 and even beat the 770 on one benchmark.
