My current 3570k can handle 5.0ghz under this loop, but I don't know how far I will HAVE to push the 3770k to make sure my CPU isn't the bottleneck.
edit - I also currently have 16gb of memeory in my system, was thinking of maybe doubling up and trying to ramdisk. Think it will have boost my performance a lot for my games, and should I just give my current 1600s to my little bro and just do 32gb of 2133s?
Look at some of the reviews if you want exact numbers on specific games. Check out the numbers here for Crysis 3 (2560x1600 is pretty close to 2560x1440 performance). http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_780_SLI/10.html
... 40fps with GTX780 SLi... and a questionably playable FPS in the low 20's with just a single 780. You would be definitely forced to turn down settings.
That's not to say you won't be able to get good FPS in lots of games... just the demanding ones that I'm sure you're thinking of spending this money for may be disappointing if you expect 90+fps for your 120hz display. With SLi 780's you'd be above 60 in your "average" looking new game.
As for the RAM disk, that typically only improves game load time, and not actual performance. In the rare case a game streams data from the HD, like Diablo 3, a SSD is enough to never from it.Edited by Crazy9000 - 6/6/13 at 8:21pm
