In the next year I am planning on upgrading my gpu, but I don't know if I should get another gtx 760 or just buy a completely different 770. My motherboard that I have doesn't support SLI so I would have to buy a new motherboard, a higher wattage power supply, and another 760. Or, I could get a 770 and a slightly higher wattage power supply and save some money... which should I do?

You should go for the 770 if you are gaming at 1080p. You won't notice much of a difference if you game in 1080p between 760 SLI vs 770. Plus, you can SLI the 770 later if you need to to bring performance close to that of a GTX 780, which the 760 SLI would perform less.

I'm really wanting to know if the price of the extra parts would be worth buying another 760 though, because in benchmarks I have seen it go higher than titans.

760 SLI is faster then a 780 and therefore much faster then a 770.

You are right, the 760 is faster in games then a titan. If you already have one, its a logical thing to get another 760, as opposed to a 770.
a 760 to 770 is a very negligible improvement, for the price.

The SLI 760 benchmarks do not really show any change from the 770 unless you are gaming at like 4k resolutions. You can also SLI the 770 in the future to bypass the 780 Ti in benchmarks if you want to and it would just be smarter. You can go either way, but the 770 would be better in the end. You could sell your 760 for around $200-220 and use that towards a new PSU and a 770, spending maybe $120, versus a new motherboard, PSU, and another 760, which would cost around $350. You can later SLI the 770 to get great results.

The general rule for this kinda thing is to get the most powerful single GPU you can get your hands on right now and SLI it down the road, so I'd say go for the 770. Also, if you are waiting a few months before buying anything, I'd wait for the 800 series to roll out later this year and maybe you might want one of those. Also, when the new series comes out, the 700 series will have a price drop.

The 800 series actually did cross my mind and i'm not doing this until later so maybe I can get to 860's in sli instead

if you are not doing this until later then you should wait and get a single strong 800 series card. or if you do a system upgrade, you could get 2 and do sli.

You should wait for the 800 series as all the others have been saying. You will need to upgrade your motherboard sooner or later, and if the 800 series proves to be much better than the 700 series and worth it in terms of $$$, go for it. It will also cause the 760, 770, 780, and 780 Ti's price to go down, so you can then grab two 770s for much cheaper. If the 800 series cards prove to be that great, then maybe get two 860s or 870s and run them in SLI. This would easily probably beat the 780 Ti. We just need to wait for the benchmarks.

The 760's in sli just about matched the 780 Ti and beat the titan so I assume the 860 in sli would do the same or better.
