like the title say looking to get 120 fps on up coming titles... like witcher 3 with the phsy X turned all the way up..
My RIG
formula a-z mother board
fx-8350
120g SSD, 250G SSD, 1T HDD
16g RAM at 1800 G-skill... can get up to 2133 but CPU cant handle it
just got the GTX 780 asus directcu ii overclock
have a simple H60 cooler for cpu
an a 750w PSU

Now with all that i can only get 60 or so maybe 70 FPS on the batman origin with everything up.
i would like to know would it be better to get a second GPU an SLI or get a high end GPU for a dedicated Phys X.. an i know everyone says that the 780 has more than enough but, no it doesn't i own one even if it has 2000 plus cuda cores. lol.

O an can a gtx 780 ti sli with a gtx 780? possible?

A 780 ti will sli with another 780 ti.
However you can use a 780ti and a 780 as a dedicated physx card-for what that's worth.

get a monitor that does more than 60Hrz refresh rate, then you can actually see those extra frames, lol.

Why would you use a $500 video card as a dedicated physX card...

There's no way currently with a single GPU setup to get 120 FPS average with everything turned up. At 1080p with everythin turned up and SLI 780s, I still wouldn't average 120 FPS (on BF4, might be different for single player games). So most likely you're looking at getting SLI 780 Tis or Titan Blacks to achieve what you're looking for. "A 750W PSU" doesn't help either, model would definitely help as 750W might be pushing it with SLI 780/Tis. If you're using an off-brand or low quality PSU, you can throw SLI out of the window and just suck it up playing at High to get what frames you're looking for.

what i really want is to game in 3D with 60 fps in both eye's.... but that can more or less hold off for now.
so prob cant afford to get two 780 TI's.. will have to settle with SLI 780's
an as far as PSU's its a corsair i think TX know it has the gold standard on it

Yeah that is a nice monitor :-) You might be able to run them on your current PSU, but I would recommend at the very least Gold Certified 800W, going with 850W to be certain. 750 is just a shade under what I would get, but you do have a good PSU. A single 780 requires 42A on the 12V rail, SLI Nvidia recommends 62A, which is exactly what that PSU (if it is the tx model) supplies, and that is cutting it too close for me. I would step up to the HX850 model to be sure :-/

Another BIG factor not to over look for 120 FPS average is the CPU. Every game will be different, but you'll find that your 8350 is going to bottleneck you in many games, well before 120 FPS. Getting a i7 with a great HSF or water cooling with serious OCing has to be part of the equation.

You will also have to turn down a few settings in many games, which really is not a big deal, as many games look pretty much as good on high as ultra.

One more note: You can use 85hz, 100hz and 120hz if you are using Lightboost, and anything from 30-144hz without Lightboost with custom profiles. If you can only maintain 85 FPS, you can use that refresh rate instead. For myself, 85hz is the point where I feel things are good enough.
