I was just hanging out with a friend who recently built a gaming rig. It was good, but witcher 2 and arma 3 had like 30 fps at times. I'm looking for a rig that can handle witcher 2, crysis 2, and arma 3 on max settings while seeing 60+fps and really little dropping below that. I'm a bit of a noob, so looking for advice on whether this rig can do what I want, or whether I need to upgrade/change parts to get the best bang for my buck.

I was worried, because friend has very similar build, to the one I'm buying except with a GTX 760, and different SSD and CPU cooler

My build:

Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
G.Skill Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card
Rosewill THOR V2-W ATX Full Tower Case
Corsair Enthusiast 850W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
Asus VG248QE 144Hz 24.0" Monitor 1920x1080p

You don't need a 780ti unless you are gaming at 2k or multi monitors.

For Arma 3 you will need a heavily OCd CPU, its very CPU bound. You can easily overclock your system. However getting a better cooler like the Noctua NH-D14 would be a good bet.

As for the rest, your GTX780 should be more than sufficient for 60FPS +...

YOu can consider adding another GTX780.

I was originally planning on getting a 770 but after reading about the lower framerates I decided to go with the 780 for the better performance and quieter sound. More I read though, I worry I'm just getting frivolous and spending 200 where I dont need to. 780 only gets like 10 frames higher than 760 on ultra in some cases. Should I try to SLI two 760s?

On triple monitor the 2GB of VRAM will limit you. I think stick to the GTX780 / R9 290 or 290x class of cards.
