single or dual core GPU

Hello all. I am building this as a liquid cooled rig. I never done one and my last computer had some fairly large GPUs in it and other high end parts and I overheated one so I figured that would be a way to go with this one. So that being said here is a list of main parts:

  4. I guess what i am wondering is the Mars better since it has 2 cores GTX 760 4 gig mem and is cheaper than the GTX 780 Ti single with 3 gig mem

    I dont recommend you to get a dual gpu.Just get the EVGA GTX 780 and if you can save up a little get the GTX 780 ti.Dual gpu cards have scalling issues.The GTX 780 will max out all games and the 780 ti will max out all games but a better fps mostly 5-12 fps more than the 780.get the 780 you will be very happy with it :) if you can spend 50$ more(assuming you have a budget of 650$ because you considered the 760 mars) you can get the 780 ti which is currently the best single gpu.
  6. mars 512bit interface
    giving more bandwidth which is better for gaming ;)
  7. Would that still be true with multiple screens or a large HD TVs?

    If you are talking about my answer,yes it will also be true on EVERY MONITOR or dual monitor setup or wide screen hd tv
  9. ok thanks for the info it is greatly appreciated.
  10. the asus rog card would be the better choice, person experience with asus having a silent duel cooling solution with lowered temp's and with asus's customer service I would recommend asus,
