Fair enough - PS SLI/Xfire + whole system takes give or take 550w at peak.

Yup -that would be good

Look up benches of the cards I listed as see how it absolutely destroys the 780/290.
There's absolutely no question of that setup beating single cards. But the VRAM limit is the problem and/or power (although that shouldn't be a problem for most with over 500w PSUs) and/or space (as mentioned above).
I have a VRAM limit and that quite literally is my only bottleneck - I couldn't careless though, as I don't play with deferred AA - I spent a good 15mins with a friend analysing the differences between 1440p vs 1080p vs MSAA on @ 4x vs OFF.
Ended up being:
@ 1440p (what bluedevil and myself have) - there's such minute difference that you have to glue your eyes to the screen to see the pixels being poorly represented near edges.
@ 1080P it was more more noticeable, but not something I would be "worried" about.

Back to BF4 I did the unthinkable ... I started using DMRs again. LoL. Looking for a new challenge to keep me interested because Ghost Recon Phantoms and Insurgency are taking all my attention.
Indeed - agreed, but hey people prefer single cards - and I totally get it and would prefer a single card myself.
But when you're on 1440p - wanting to play at high FPS, you're going to need that RAW performance - something a single card can't do (at the same price of course) - take a 780ti - and the 780ti destroys it.
