I'm about to build a PC for gaming with triple monitors.

I'm hoping to get 60+ fps at max settings on the latest games (it's racing sims that float my boat the most).

What will give the best results? Two GTX 780s at 3gb, or two GTX 770s at 4gb?

two 780s can handle 4k gaming, they will smash through racing sims and provide maxed out graphical performance in just about any game made on 3 1080p monitors. the two 770s though will also have no problem handling racing games like grid, dirt, f1, etc across three monitors, but they will start to slow up running games like crysis 3 or other aaa graphically stunning newer games.

for comparison, a single 780ti with a decent overclock will match the performance of two reference clocked 770s.

The two 780 will give you better result,but the real question imo is, that is the difference so big that its worth to buy two 780's instead of the 770's.

Out of interest, what racing sims are good on the PC?

There's project CARS which is coming out late 2014 which looks incredibly good; there's also Assetto Corsa which is in purchasable beta at the moment. Assetto looks very good too. There's also iRacing which is an online only, and rather expensive, simulator, and rFactor2. My motivation for the powerful PC is Project CARS and Assetto Corsa.
There are others too.

Cool Thanks. I find it very frustrating that the Xbox gets Forza (which is brilliant IMO), but PC driving games never seem as good.

its quite an expensive setup, roughly $800-1000 for all the control peripherals..... but even if your not into racing games, you have got to admit that this is a pretty insanely fun looking setup
