That is really up to you, the two fans that are included should be "sufficient" however adding more will lower you temps possibly up to a few degrees but it will be louder in return, its a reasonably large enough case that a 760/8350 shouldnt be too much heat for two fans

Hi SenSher0
your Cooler Master K281 case supports 3 fans
It comes with 1x Front: 120mm red LED fan & 1x Rear: 120mm black fan x 1
and has the option for another 120mm side fan

If you are happy with the airflow produced by the two installed fans then don't replace them , if
not you could go with higher CFM fans to push more air throughout your case.
I would add a third optional intake fan on your side panel to help provide airflow for your 760 and also this
will give you positive airflow and help reduce dust intake into your case
If you wish to replace the fans i can recommend some high airflow fans

So I can only add one fan side
will it be a fan that takes hot air
or give the cool air to the video cards ?
And what about the sound with a 3 fans ?

blow cool air in, and that really depends on the fans themselves/if they are being controlled etc.

seeing that the third fan is optional , you can choose a quiet fan if that is what you want , i would make the side fan an intake fan to draw cool air in from outside the case especially if the single front fans airflow is partially blocked by the HDD cages

the fans available there are no better than your case fans already installed ,
keep the two you have in your case and buy a third for your side panel
