    Better off with the 780ti for 700.
    1. Frame buffer size is larger (3GB VS 2G Running SLI does not make it 4GB. Would still be 2GB.
    2. Would save power running a Single GPU over 2.
    3. You would have a free slot for you to buy another 780ti for SLI!!!

    Personally I will go with 780Ti, and also this link may help you decide:
    AnandTech | Bench - GPU14

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Agree with Cyber. Your short term gain would be higher with he the two 770s, but kiss 4k goodbye, if the game doesn't support SLI then you get nothing, the gain from the chart linked is not really worth it and in a lot of cases surprisingly lower, and when the 780ti goes cheaper when they release the 880ti (or whatever they call it), then you grab a second one and enjoy your extra performance! =D

    Toms hardware has a great step by step TUT, it is not a video but has plenty of pictures and is very detailed. The best part is the TUT is current unlike a lot of info out there. How to Build a PC - A Guide to Parts, Vendors and Installation

    How to basic has a pretty straight forward video as well. The bios part will depend on your board.
