I won't get a single card, I need the best bang for buck and I will be extremely poor after this!!! Also, should I get 2GB or 4GB cards, I'm not sure if 2x2GB cards would give me 4GB of ram or not?

this doesn't make much sense to me because a $420 r9-290 will give better gaming performance than two 270x's in cfx and a $500 gtx780 will also give better gaming performance than two 760s in sli.

The 760 SLI equates to a 780ti, in the UK the prices are also different. For instance, a GTX 760 is £160, GTX 780 is £350 and a GTX 780 Ti is £550.

How much is the 270x? Personally I'm an ATI/AMD guy myself so I would recommend doing Crossfire with the 270x due to the crazy UK prices. However, SLI seems to operate better due to superior drivers so if the 760 is comparable in price to the 270x I would do that.

sli or crossfire wont give you any more ram is you have 2gbs on each card you have only 2

so i would go for a stronger single card like gtx 780 or r9 290 or 290x

If you think this helped you please pick it as the answer xD

running 760 sli myself, can max everything, however I run in 2560x1440 on the 2GB asus models, I have to tweak some settings for some games, so if I was you I'd get the 4gb gaming versions to be more future proof ;)

interesting above benchmark. I've seen plenty of unigine heaven/valley scores and fire strike scores where a single 780ti can come very close to matching 770s in sli, so I'm very reluctant to believe that 760s in sli will beat a single 780ti, unless your talking over clocked 1.3ghz 760sli vs reference 900mhz 780ti. clock for clock the 780ti will beat 760s easily, especially at 1440p and above, and does this with much less power draw and heat.
