Hey, guys! Should I get an i7 4960X and two-way SLI GTX 780Ti, or an i7 4770K and three-way SLI GTX 780Ti?

For hard core gaming go for three way SLI!:D

Get 4930k instead of 4960X and two 780TI for gaming and overclocking it would be overkill and future proof

or how about 4930k + 4 x 780 - because more is never less :D

For the best performance, get: i7 4930K, with a really good cooler, and 3 or 4 EVGA 780 Ti SC.

I think I'll just loose a little my budget and get i7 4960X + 3x GTX 780Ti. What do you think?

A 4960X and 4930K in no way shape or form will improve your gaming experience. Even an i7-4770K won't do much since most games don't take advantage of the extra horse power. After you spend about $2500 on a gaming PC just about everything else is pure overkill.

i7 4930K + 4 780 Ti will deliver more horespower.

@g-unit1111 Really? Then I'll just get the 4770K and 3-way SLI. Thanks!

Yeah if you look at benchmarks there's very minor performance increases once you go up from i5-4670K and the i7-4770K:
