GTX 780 or SLI 760s

The price drop for the asus gtx 780 makes me inclined to jump on it. I then looked at the 760 and was wondering what people feel about using SLI.

I've never used multiple cards before. Upon research is seems effective but the power usage seems like it'd need a significant boost in the power supply box.

Which route would you go?

Uses: Gaming, video editing, meshing, and the new cry engine

780 because you can always add a 2nd but won't have to for a while

If you have a 760 already, then go sli - you will do nothing wrong here /well, you may and will have some torn frames and a bit of stuttering, but it is all acceptable/.

If you don't have a 760, then go for the 780 or 780ti instead of sli. single cards have fewer troubles /and don't require lots of watts and a good case/ than running a multicard rig...

single 780 = less problem.

And for what I know, sli is still not supported in 3D modeling and other video/3d programs (not 100% sure) , but its always better have one powerful gtx 780 card bec it still can keep up even with sli 760 and future games.

I has no issues with sli..I guess people still saying this due to the past of how sli was..As of now the scaling is great and ive yet to seen any bad micro-stuttering if any
