hey guys, I'm building my pc with the next specs:
-intel I7 4820k
-16Gb ram crosshair vengeance
-Asus p9x79 LE motherboard
-Azza titan 1000w
-120 Gb samsung 840 EVO ssd
-2 tb hard drive 64M cache
I think I should buy the gtx 780 ti but I'm not entirely shure, also I'm looking forward to upgrade my system and play comming games (that's why intel i7 instead of i5) can somebody help me which card should I choose? thanks :)

The r9 290 crossfire will be faster than the 780 ti but a single 780 ti will be more reliable and you can always sli later. I would recommend the single 780 ti. Or if you can wait a few months you could get the gtx 880. There are rumors that the 780 ti will be faster than the 880 so if you dont feel like waiting and finding out, the 780 ti is your best option now. The 290 is faster than the 770 so if you go duel card route do the 290 crossfire.

never mind checked out that article maybe just buy a little 500$ placeholder save up until the prices drop to reasonable numbers(50% performance increase doesnt equal 2000$ just on cpu,mobo and ram alone.)
