i would take Seladon's list and replace the 760 with 280x and whole price would be 1000$.
It is said that AMD will gain (at most) 45% extra performance (nvidia will get a few % too, but not as much).
Still this config will rock for 1-2 years with or without OC

Yes, you could SLI two GTX 760s on that PSU. Getting a 280x as Fremenash proposed would be a decent choice, though I really doubt that 45% will be the real number, they announced it would be UP TO 40%. Plus to crossfire that, you'd need more wattage on the PSU.

Well a 280x will only get an extra 13FPS which aint 45% lol for the cost of a 280X i don't think its worth it, plus the heat they put out.
