I changed the power supply to a better one:)

How much of a beast do you want it to be? What games will you play?
It's not a bad graphics card but something more powerful would be better

good overall but if you want to play games on ultra 1080 you should consider getting a gtx 770

I'm trying to keep it as cheap as possible at around 1300........ I want it mainly for video editing. And music production. I was going to get a Ps4 aswell but then thought might as well just go to game on pc if I'm spending this much on it. That new power supply is only a bronze I wanted gold as need to save electric.

If editing 4k vids you may want a larger SSD depending on the size of the files and number you will be working on at any one time. You will want your work in progress files on your SSD and then move to HDD when complete.

Okay this power supply is very very good.

You might not have have heard of the brand because they rarely sell under their own name(produce for other companies) but they make some of the best power supplies available.

The Gigabyte has better cooling but they are usually very long cards and some people buy them and then realize they don't fit in the case:lol: 

How much are those cards?
I would choose something different than either of those

Partpicker shows what components are compatible but not always the cards vs case compatibility

I will check for you:) 

These cards are very good as well. The cooling is quiet and superb:D

The one i recommended is £243.31 .
My last graphics card was a Msi Twin Frozr and it was very well built with an excellent cooler.
I regret not having bought Msi Twin Frozr cards for my new ones

At the end of the day the GTX760's are all Nvidia chips with just different boards and cooling solutions so it's up to you.

I have two HIS Radeon R9 270X IceQ X2 Boost 2048MB cards running in crossfire configuration.
I get awesome performance from them and play Battlefield 4 in 1920x1080 with ultra settings and 2 x MSAA.
The only downside is that i can just faintly hear them if i am trying to sleep with my computer on.

Well whatever card you choose is up to you:) 
The Gigabyte cards are very good. I only meant the Twin Frozr cards were very quiet.
They don't do that case in white:( 
I can only think of one good looking white case at the moment as i always think a case with a good cooling set up is very important especially for overclocking. Let me know what you think of this:D

instead of spending out on this

would it be better to have two of these set up like yours ?

will be cheaper too

I would stick with the GTX760 if i were you. Not all games support Sli or Crossfire.
The only reason i bought 2 graphics cards this time was because i had never tried a dual card set up before and wanted to see how it would perform.
I also specifically bought 2 AMD 270x's so i would have AMD's Mantle supported cards for Battlefield 4.
Mantle will not be supported on Nvidia cards at least for the foreseeable future.

would that card be just as gd as your gpu set up then ? because i want to play call of duty ghost on the best settings available for as long as possible on line no problems
also want to record my game too so would need the power to do that

The Noctua is a lot better. They make awesome cooling solutions.
As for you graphics set up it is good but not as good as my 2 AMD 270x's.
