So i have a GTX 770 SC w/ ACX 2Gb, and a single 1600x900 monitor. In the future i would like to upgrade to two Monitors (1600x900). I was wondering if my GTX could support it? If so, how would my performance go down in games.

Yes it will be able to support it easily. The performance may drop if you have the game on both monitors. the desktop/ game combo wont be a noticeable drop.

Yeah, it will support both screens and the preformance difference in games will be insignificant like a loss of 5-7 frames at an average.

A single gtx 770 is good for most 1080p games. A 1080p monitor has a resolution of 1920x1080, which is 2,073,600 pixels. So, you'll be good up to that amount of pixels.

Two 1600x900 monitors have 2,880,000 pixels. That is 806,400 more pixels, or 0.39% more. If you get another monitor at the same resolution, you should get another 770. They scale in SLI to give about 75% more performance, so you'd be rock solid with another one.

By coincidence, I'm actually selling a brand new one. It's the Windforce version from Gigabyte. They are $380 new, but I plan to list it on eBay for $350. Let me know by private message if you're interested, and I'll give you first crack at it before I list :-)
