    You don't need 4gb of RAM if you don't want to use Nvidia surrond.
    1 780, 780 ti or R9 290x are better and require less power then 2 GPU's in SLI.

    You can get an i7-4770k+ a decent motherboard for the same money you will be paying for the FX-9370+the Asus mobo.

    Yea I was going to (in future) buy a three good screens and use a setup like that.
    Actually the all of the above cannot beat the sli 760
