http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hRqmNG I have a few questions. The biggest one on my mind is should I go with a 780ti or go for some crossfire 290x's in the future. Whatever you think the advice would be appreciated.

the 780 ti is still better than the crossfire of 290x. Just get the one card and later sli the 780ti.

Yeah that's what I have been thinking. However I also heard that sli 780ti's are a bit of an overkill but I am not sure if that is really true.

It depends, what resolution will you play at.

Probably just 1920 x 1080.

That's waaaaaay overkill. These cards are meant for higher resolutions. A single 780 non ti or r9 290 will close to max out all games, except for crysis that's another story.

So with this monitor and a 780ti what resolution could I use on a game like battlefield on high settings?

Another thing that I was just thinking about. Does this case have good enough cooling to not have to buy some extra fans? There only a couple bucks each so it wouldn't matter that much.

You only need the included fans in that case, sometimes adding more fans on a case can choke the parts of air.

Yeah that's what I heard. Thanks for the reply!
