it is very obvious that the 780 will perform better then the 770 and the 770 better than the 760
but my question here is that will a gtx 760 do for a 1080p single monitor?
will i get significant boosts in performance by using a better gpu?
is it worth the money or is it simply overkill?

You just have to look at benchmarks. If you want to shoot for 60 fps with all games, even the 780 will dip below the 60 mark with full AA and on "Ultra" settings in the most demanding games.

This review shows you what you can expect out of 760, 770, and 780 at 1080p for many games:

I think the 770 is worth it over the 760 if you can do it, but I don't know if the 780 is worth it. For longevity, yes, but the actual improvement in performance I don't think is worth the additional $150 or so.

Basically the 760 will play smoothly at medium/high settings, the 770 will play at high settings with some AA, and the 780 will play at the ultra preset with some AA, all at 1080p with smooth gameplay.

so what can be considered a good fps for a benq 76hz monitor with 1920*1080 resoultion at ultra settings?

I consider 60fps on ultra settings to be my personal preference as a minimum for 1080p.

When considering framerates, you also have to take the CPU into consideration. What kind of CPU do you have?

if it means getting a 770 over a 760, get the FX 8320.

That's not a bad spot to be in. Personally, I'd go for the Intel solution at this point in time because the Intel architecture seems to offer consistently better gaming performance, though AMD is making some strides now that more games are being built to use the power of many CPU cores.

That's an old monitor, but for the price, it's actually a pretty good option.

alright what would you call new monitor and how much extra will i have to spend on a new one?
from what ive learnt is that there are 3 main things to look for in a monitor:
1. Resolution
2. Refresh rate
3. Response time

so the one ive chosen has 1920*1080 res, 76hz refresh rate and 2ms g2g response time

what would you suggest to enhance my gaming experience with my current build?

cpu- amd fx 8320 or intel i5 4670k
mobo- msi 990 fx or msi z 87 depending on what cpu i choose
gpu- nvidia msi gtx 770 twin frozer

i guess a 1080p monitor will do for this
what do you suggest?

The other thing to consider, obviously, is how good the color is, but that's not enough of a factor to change your choice.

(Also, resolution should really be DPI, because 1080p on a 22 inch screen looks great, but on a 27 inch screen looks horrible.)

very good point, but at the same time, im perfectly happy with 1366 x 768 on my 32" monitor (call me crazy lol) but its quality enough for me

Haha, yes, I'm absolutely calling you crazy. xP

If you're at any distance remotely coming close to a 'standard' distance for a computer monitor, I would consider that to be bloody horrible - the pixels would be completely distinct and noticeably distracting.

yeah I can see the pixels up close, but the EDID is totally botched on my HDTV (32" E series VIZIO) so the 720p on VGA looks 10x better than 1080 on the HDMI. When I really need graphics, I switch to the 23" Acer 1680 x 1050
