it won't bottleneck any of them. go for whichever you can afford, might want to wait for a custom cooler 290x. the 760 is not in the same league.

you've opened up a can of worms... be prepared for a fanboy battle.

yes, in any cpu intensive games the i5 will wipe the floor with the A10-7850k. the faster the gpu(s) and the more the difference will show. - in the case of those 2 780ti-s it will very visible/measurable. but for example with a 750ti (or radeon 260x) you won't be able to tell them apart.

The 760 MARS is in the same league, and at 1080p outperforms a single 780ti is many cases.

so an i5 4430 can handle 2 780tis, but an overclocked 7850k at 4.5-5 ghz will. makes no sence to me. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-4430-vs-AMD-A10-7...


CPU boss is a crap site, the i5 is much faster.

jays2cents was able to play bf4 at ultra with a 7850k and a 780 at 60-130 fps
