Upgrade that PSU. Go for the AX 760 from corsair its quality stuff. Also you have an i7 on there, which is way overpriced if this is going to be a gaming rig. Go down to an i5 and add in a solid state drive with the money you saved. The GPU is the best you can get so that looks good to me 8)

Comparing a GTX780Ti to GTX760 SLI doesn't make a lot of sense - approx $670-700 vs $500.
Comparing a GTX780Ti to GTX770 SLI however, makes a lot more sense - approx $670-700 vs $660

The GTX780Ti sits approximately between both of those SLI setups, though this will vary significantly from game to game and display resolutions. In outright FPS, GTX770 SLI is likely to be better value than a GTX780Ti, though I'm not sure the relatively small performance gains outweight the negatives - power usage, heat, scaling issues, SLI profile issues.
If it was me, I'd get the GTX780Ti, though only if I was playing at a high enough resolution to warrant it. At 1080P, it's massive overkill, and most people are still using this resolution.
