Keep in mind that we actually don't know the specs and power requirements of the Gtx 790. It is supposedly a dual gpu card and if Nvidia keeps its TDP below 300w like rumored, then a 1000w power supply would be plenty. It is still best to wait for the Gtx 790 is appear on the market before making a choice. Because the 790 is a dual card gpu, adding another for SLI will mean 4 cards which isn't know for very well scaling. I would much rather have 3 or 2 more power cards than 4. As i said, it is still better to wait for the 790 is come out before making a deicision.

Yes I guess my post was a little confusing what i really plan on doing is Getting 1 790 assuming it will be the best Graphics card on the market (by Nvidia) like the 690 is ( its a little faster than the 780 ti )

And Assuming it will be Compatible with Nvida Gsync Because i plan on getting this Monitor The ROG Swift PG278Q
http://rog.asus.com/296652014/news/rog-announces-the-pg...

So that being said will the card run as x16 on my Asus Maximus 6 Hero motherboard or will it run as x8x8 like SLI would?

Ok so if i only plan on getting 1 790 it will run at x16 on pcie 3.0 correct? im kind of confused by what you said lol

And since its a dual GPU it wont act like SLI and make it x8x8?

Ya internally its still split into x8 and x8, not that it matters. PCIe 3.0 x4 is enough for any graphics out there
