Solid. i wouldn't change a thing. except maybe adding some aftermarket CPU cooling if you don't have it.

This is for what use? 2 ro 3 gigs of vram is enough for 1 monitor

Was thinking of doing this, but haven't researched the topic as of yet, what would you suggest? Not sure if I want to overclock the CPU yet or not.

Its going to be for gaming/productivity/multi-tasking/minor video editing. Yes, 2 or 3 gigs would have been plenty but I wanted to "future proof" her a bit, and options to add additional monitors in the future.

Rather you get a GTX 770 with the inital 3Gs of VRAM, thats enough future proof

Is the GTX 770's performance worth the extra $ though? I plan to SLI another GTX 760 in the future, so with that being said, wouldn't you think performance and $ wise that the GTX 760 would be a smarter buy?

760's in SLI will outperform a single 780.
