Yes it is and can max out most games at 1080p. 2 GTX 760's can beat a gtx 780.

It's hard to future proof a pc though, who knows what will be out in 2017.

A 2xGTX760 may "beat" a GTX780 in benchmarks that only show the frame rates, but there's more to a good experience than that. Multiple GPU's tend to introduce stutter and other issues that single GPU's might not have. Things have improved, but it's still not ideal. Furthermore, the GTX780 has 3GB which may matter in the future whereas most GTX760's have 2GB (if you have two, it's still only 2GB for the framebuffer as the data is cloned).

You can look up benchmarks easily for a GTX760. Since you have an i5-4670K there will rarely be a CPU bottleneck so you can take any scores as typical for you.

So YES, the GTX760 isn't a bad card but my advice is get the Asus GTX770 instead. It's a little more at $320 but it can also play most games at full quality at 60FPS/1080p.

There is stuttering and all SLI problems and support and such but he just listed beat, which it does. My advice would be get a R9 290 if you save up some more money, It'll max out everything and has 4GB Video memory and a 512-bit memory interface running at 320GB/s, though that isn't all it's reason enough to save up for one.
