I recommend you go single gpu setup and get a 780

What will you be cooling the cpu with etc

or the ram check to see if it the newer updated sticks or the older 1.65v sticks. intel cpu memory controller looks for 1.5v ram. some of the older 1600 ram is 1.65v. on newegg and parts picker the 1866 gskill arires and lp cosair running the same price as ram you picked out.

Buy a cooler, if you plan to OC

Ed do you have a reason to go with 1 780 over 2 760 in sli? I thought you get better performance with 2 cards in SLI?

For gaming and very little (if any) editing, I'd go i5 and get a powerful single GPU instead. Not sure how soon you plan on purchasing, but with the GPU market as volatile as it is right now, I'd hold off a month or two for a nice non-reference 290X or 780/780TI.

Best solution

Preference, performance the sli 760's will beat a 780, but that will not be the case in every game , as the would have to be optimised for sli. However the 780 will constantly pump out high fps no matter what game you throw at it.

One year down the line it allows you to sli (if needed) ... rather than replace both 760's

OP. Why not move down to i5 and also lower your RAM to 8 GB if your main goal is to game? Then get a single powerful GPU with the extra money?

do I gain nothing from an i7? I think I will go to 8GB of ram with higher speed like 2133 thanks for that also thanks ed I will be going with single 780 for the moment.

You won't see much difference from i7 when gaming.
i7 has hyper threading which is mostly for intense editing, etc.

You wont see a massive improvement in games maybe 1-5 fps increase, its more for games such as BF4 that uses that cpu.

An i5 would suffice if you need to save money, i7 for long term.

Dont for to select an answer.
