I'm wondering if anybody who knows computers well enough may be able to help?

I have a budget of approximately £1,750.00

The purpose of the build is to run Battlefield 4 on Ultra settings

I have chosen this after many hours of research and tweaking, but I have I dilemma......

the rig consists of;

Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 High Air Flow ATX cube case
(in future I want to water cool APU, GPU's ect)

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 AM3+

AMD FX 8350 4Ghz 8MB Chache

Corsiar Vengance Pro 2x 4gb 1866mhz Ram
(eventually add another 2x 4gb =16gb total)

Corsair Hydro Series H100i CPU Cooler

Corsair RM 850w Fully Modular PSU

Kingston 120gb SSD

Samsung DVD re-writer

Windows 8.1

Keyboard, Mouse Ect.

AND HERE IS WHERE I NEED HELP (what would you do and why?)

option 1.....

2x GTX 780 EVGA version super clocked SLI and cheaper monitor

or

option 2.....

1x GTX 780 EVGA version and a 4K Monitor

for all you Intel lovers I appreciate the Intel 4770K is an awesome CPU however I only want to play games like Battlefield 4, no rendering, no fancy stuff and AMD is perfect for this.

Hard call, I don't have room for a big 4K monitor so don't know how it looks or compares with my titchy 22" 1080 display. ;) 
If it was for me, I'd go for a GTX780Ti rather than an SLI setup and pair it with a 120Hz 1080 display.
Of the two listed, I'd go for option two, though.

Thanks, 4K Monitors you can get in 28 inch

the reason I picked 2x 780's and not the ti is because the benchmarks of 2x 780's smash the TITAN out the park

Can't fit a 28" monitor onto my tiny computer desk, even a 24" display is really too large, but I'd LOVE to get my hands on a compact 120Hz display.
Don't like SLI or Crossfire, but a single 780Ti usually beats a Titan in games.
Keep your eyes peeled, I'm sure you'll get PLENTY of other replies. ;)

780 Ti is 780x2.

It's two 780 GPUs on one card. That's why it smokes the standard Titan.

Okay wow, that sounds amazing, I have been looking at just the 780's SLI, you've opened my eyes.

Which variation of the Ti would you go for?

Cjkupers is Incorrect, the GTX780Ti is a single GPU card, the Titan Z is dual GPU.
There is some differences between the Ti and non Ti versions, but most would agree the improvements in performance between them are not worth the expense, you'd be better off getting an overclocked non Ti version, or getting a stock clocked card and OC it yourself.
Don't try to OC on the stock single fan cooler, it's good at stock speeds but can cause the card to throttle when overclocked because it can't handle the extra heat created by pushing the card.
