Building gaming pc need help/advice

Hi all, i posted on here recently about some parts that i had picked for a new/first build. since then i have done some more research and could do with some advice.
For instance i have read that any more than 8gb of ram is pretty much wasted and the new upcoming games wont be so VRAM dependent but tbh i have no idea myself how good this information is...
These are my revised parts that i have picked and the case is already bought http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2zYJ2
i have no idea what sort of power i will need to run this either...

My budget i want to keep as low as possible but i could go up to £1300-£1400 but i would like best bang for buck type stuff :)

any discussions/solutions on a better route for my gaming pc would be great thanks.

    sli 760 isnt faster than a single 780, but you got microstutter (yes, multi-gpus are still not as smooth as a single one), more heat, more power usage and you cant really add a 3rd one late since the scaling is really bad.

    For 400 pounds, you can have a custom 780 or a custom 290.
  5. ah ok :) so which 780 would you recommend? and what power would i need to run my build with 1 780?
