it depends on your budget
I have 3 monitors 1080p and the gtx 780 does great for me max everygame on high with 60+ fps ultra around 40 and 50. very playable . but if I was you you I will wait for the gtx 880 coming in sept it will perform as well as the780 ti for cheaper and less power consumption.

So when the 880 comes out will the 780TI be less? or what. I am sorry I am still kinda new to graphics. I have been a Mac user for years (I still am) but am building a PC just for gaming

I currently have a 3 monitor setup (5760x1200) using a single GTX 780 Ti OC'd to 1200Mhz... I Play all my games at medium to ultra settings ( depending on game) MMO's i get about 50+ FPS on highest settings, BF4 gave me ~45-50 FPS on high settings, CS: GO i get ~200-250 fps on max settings (although i limit it to 120 fps). The highest amount of vram i've seen my card use was 2.8 gb... I know some games out now can use 3gb at 1080p (watch dogs) but i think that is because it is poorly optimized. Personally i find 3 gb of ram to be plenty and a single gtx 780 ti provides me with playable frame rates at pretty high settings in most games. If you are worried about future games needing more vram you might want to consider going with the GTX 780 6GB and sliing it later on down the road... If it is not a concern to you I'd just get a gtx 780 Ti and then either sli it later on or sell it and get a GTX 880 or GTX 980 when they come out ( depending on how long you wait for upgrades).

why get a 780 ti than sell it you will loose money and a lot when the 880 come out nobody will want it trust me you better off with a 780 it is cheaper and I am pretty sure in the future if you want to sli it will be just fine. And more people will find it an attractive buy . you'll be to sale it and loose less money than the 700$ 780 ti which get like only 10more fps than the 780 really check out the bench mark it consumes more energy you can get 2 780 sli and your eye won't be able to see the difference trust me. unless you want just want an expensive card for 1month bragging right. when the 880 comes out I guarantee you that the 780 ti will be the same price and out of stock that is my bet. the 880 will be less than the 780 ti. and I am betting it will be easier to sell the gtx 780 without loosing money. it is about 470 500 the 880 will probably be about 600 the 780 ti 650 to 700 so in the month or 5 if you ask for 450 for a practically new 780 people will find it a good deal. for the 780 ti you'll have to go like under the 880 to be able to sell it.
