I would suggest going for a LGA 2011 build since the LGA 1155 doesn't have enough PCI lanes to run 3+ GPU's effectively.

A GTX 770 draws around 195w from the wall, so i'd suggest you buying a 1200w 80+ PSU or more.

Your graphics card link is for a 3-slot gtx 680, not a gtx 770.

With three of those or 4 dual-slot gtx 770s, you won't have room for a sound card.

Also, is this going to be a Folding rig or something? For a gaming rig, it's generally not worthwhile to use more than 2 gpus because performance doesn't scale well past 2.

A folding rig is a computer built for the primary purpose of running Folding@home.
There are a number of other GPGPU projects that can benefit from more than 2 video cards, but Folding is one of the better known ones on hardware sites (even if it isn't listed in that wikipedia article)

With 3 dual-slot video cards, you'd have at least one slot left for a sound card (possibly two if you have a case with eight expansion slots and space out the video cards). With 4 dual-slot video cards, you'd need at least 8 case expansion slots, and with 3 triple-slot video cards, you'd need at least 9 case expansion slots, and in neither case would you have room for a sound card. In several of those cases, one or more of the video cards would limit the airflow available to other video cards.

If your site offers pci-express extension cables, you could custom-build a frame for mounting the video cards and still be able to install a sound card, but not many people really need a discrete sound card - onboard sound is often good enough.

1 last question on your motto i guess its called? whats the difference between the Seagate 4tb and Samsung 840 Pro 256GB? can you like put both in a motherboard or something?

It's called a signature, though some here put some kind of motto there, so I can understand your confusion. The Samsung 840 Pro is a Solid State Drive (SSD), which has much better performance than a mechanical hard drive, especially when it comes to access times, but is also more expensive per gigabyte. It's fairly common around here to pair a small (or perhaps 256GB should be considered medium-sized) high-performance SSD with a high-capacity mechanical drive (which is what my Seagate 4TB is). The OS and sometimes a few games go on the SSD, while things that need more space (like home videos to be edited) and/or don't need much performance (like email client and browser) can go on the HDD.

Yes, you can connect both to the same motherboard.
