At 1080p and for the vast majority of titles, the single 770 will hold its own just fine vs. the 780.
SLI 770 is def. faster.
for how long the single 770 will hold ?

For single 1080p? Honnestly?
I think the 770 2GB will hold enough till a decent 8xx/9xx or w/e GPU to offer superior performance to a single 780 at a far more affordable price.
Yes, there are games that as a homage to their legacy as "very demanding", "benchmark of quality" etc (yes, I mean Crysis) or newer titles like Metro etc won't be "maxed out"...those cannot be "maxed out" even on Titans and do crazy minimum fps in some occasions...so?

IMHO the "ultra quality/maxed out" etc trend is a benchmarking thing - insure the most demanding scenario.
Has little to do with actual perceived quality, and having maxed out quality settings with a notch or so lower AA can be indistiguishable as far as visuals go, but the game becomes vastly more responsive. Having to have everything maxed out is stubborness and epeen more than real need - but that's me.

The only reason to go more than a 770 is probably the need for high constant fps for 120Hz/144Hz gaming etc, in which case most people would opt for SLI over a 780/Titan (or SLI 780s or Titans for the "stubborn" rich ones).

to be honest I would get a single GTX 780....

I have SLI GTX 770's and a single GTX 780, the GTX 780 is @ 1080p..
go with the single stronger card now and then SLI that later.
do not start out with SLI 770's..

Dude, I would go crossfire 7970 ghz edition. Same performance but a lot cheaper. You can get those card for $350 or less on ebay.
