(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-12-15 00:24 EST-0500) I have some spare cash left from which I can either buy a Kingston V300 120GB SSD or upgrade to a GTX770. What do you think I should do? BTW: I will be playing at 1080p, will be running dual monitors but will game on only one.

According to benchmarks the 770 will be able to max games at 1080p ultra smoothly. What games will you be playing? Reply to Carson Walker volksman December 14, 2013 9:33:44 PM I just had this issue, going from an AMD product and was upgrading. In my mind the 760 was a GREAT value, but in real world, every day performance, the SSD is a better upgrade over a normal HD than the 770 is over the 760.

Reply to huilun02 Raheel Hasan December 14, 2013 9:56:16 PM SSD will not effect game performance, it will only improve loading time. So 770 is better choice Reply to Raheel Hasan gameboy1998 December 14, 2013 10:50:53 PM I already have an OS (Windows 8 64Bit). Will my PSU and Motherboard allow to SLI two 780s in the future? The thing about SSD is I can later get them for 60$ or so but cannot upgrade from from a 760 to a 770 with 60$. Reply to gameboy1998 huilun02 December 14, 2013 11:00:08 PM Your 800w PSU is able to run two GTX 780. If you can't upgrade the graphics card then go for an SSD if you want one. Reply to huilun02 gameboy1998 December 14, 2013 11:13:31 PM I changed the PSU to Corair 750W TXV2 based on reviews and reading threads on TH. WIll it still be able to handle dual 770s Reply to gameboy1998 Best solution huilun02 December 14, 2013 11:22:53 PM Yes.
