I am currently trying to decide on getting the SLI or single card, and i'm not exactly sure which to do (i'm sorta new to this). I will be playing on a 1920x1080 60hz monitor. Since both options will cost me the same, this is becoming a very difficult decision.

Here is my full pc specs:
Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower Case
Corsair RM 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
LG UH12NS30 Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer
MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming Intel Z87 LGA 1150 Motherboard

Please help ASAP.

On a single 1080p, the sli is overkill and it makes your pc more complicated than it needs to be. Go with the 780.

Both are a waste at 1080p, a single 760 would do you fine.

Between the two options though, a 780 is a better pick. Its a little slower and more expensive, but SLI solutions with two midrange cards are better kept for when you don't have the funds to go for a higher tier card, so instead invest in e.g. a 760 now and buy the next one for SLI in 6 months time. You'll have less heat, less noise, less power consumption, no SLI troubles (though few and far between anyway) and you'll have an easier time selling them on.

Ok guys... Thank you very much for your help. I do think I will go with the 780 as i can always easily upgrade at a later time.
