Hello,
I am building new gaming PC and I am planning to put 2 GTX 780 Ti in SLI.

I did found these two video cards:
MSI GeForce GTX 780Ti Gaming Edition 3072MB £569.99
Inno3D GeForce GTX 780Ti iChill OC 3072MB £599.99

Please help me to chose one. Price and size don't matter only performance and temperature

If you're SLIing, you must chose a card with the reference cooler, since it will optimize the airflow on the case: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-03gp42...
But why are you getting two? The GTX 780 Ti is a powerhouse, and I don't think you're going to need two. If you want future-proofing, forget it. Ask people who bought 2 or 3 GTX 580 because they wanted them to last 5 years.
Therefore, my advice will be getting a single MSI GTX 780 Ti. The best GTX 780 Ti out there and probably the cheapest one. I don't know if you have already seen it, but it is just £540 on the site you mentioned.

iChill is 3 slots? May cause problems in some motherboards... I will go for the MSI. I have the Gibabyte 780ti Windforce and performs well.
But in Sli you will need a powerfull PSU (850 and above)

just get a single evga classified kingpin 780ti, water block it, then hit it with the 1.5v mod and skynet custom bios and overclock the core to about 1.6ghz. at those speeds the kingpin is only 20-25% slower than two reference clocked 780's in sli. then down the road if you need more speed, double up.

It is what I am planning to build.

Reason for GTX 780 Ti SLI is because I am planning to use 2 2560x1600 monitors. I have done research, to get stable 60+ FPS with ultra settings and this resolution I will need 2 graphic cards.

I have XL-ATX mobo, so 2 3 slot graphic cards will fit fine.

About overclocking, I am planning just to use boost provided by the card it self

Best solution

Then the best option is to buy a couple of reference cooled cards. Choose EVGA because they have the best customer support.
