Could an AX 760 handle 2 way gtx 780 sli? I would be using a 4670k and do slight overclocking. I would like to OC the cards too. If this wouldn't work would a AX 860?

It should be able to, yes. With slight OCing, the 4670k will draw about 100W. Each 780 draws 250W. That, in total, is 600W. Those components are generally what the largest amount of the power draw consists of. An AX760 would work, but if you wanted to moderate-high OCs on the cards as well as the processor (which I would recommend), then you should get the AX860 in order to play it safe. It all depends on how much OCing you want to do.

I would go with the AX 860. SLI 780 without any sort of overclocking is already near the 750w mark.

That's true, hence why I recommended the AX860 if any OCing is to be done. :)
