Thats taking the die-size into consideration and so forth....... Ive always wanted to try an Nvidia card but always ended up buying Radeon for some reason. Nothing wrong to support both camps beacuse without these guys going to war like this our market would be.............. Boring lol.
If you looking to do 2 7990s, I would go with a i7-3770K simply to give it more power but for just 2 780s a i5-3570K at 4.5GHz should be fine.

The 7990s don't scale as well when you put 2 of them together but with the new beta drivers all the frame-stutter issues have gotten to Nvidia levels. The 7990 also runs a bit on the hot side simply because it is a dual-GPU card but is able to match the Titan in raw power when overclocked. Nvidia cards are currently the powerhouse cards with the 780 but if you intend to do more than 3 screens AMD would be your only option for gaming. Unless you are running multiple monitors running at 1080p+ or a single 2560x1440/1600 monitor, you probably won't need more than 2 7970s or 1 7990 to max out most games for a good while.

Op is using two monitors now that's why I thought of 3 7979's. He needs quite a bit of vram. 2 780's would be the simplest route to go though.

Since only a few games can do dual screen gaming, 2 7970s should hold him over for a while. If he threw another 1920x1080 and wanted to do Surround or Eyefinity, I would then agree that 3 7970s or 2 780s should max out almost all games with 60+ fps.

Op's resolution at the moment is 3840x1080. Would a single gtx 780 be enough?

I doubt that a single GTX 780 would be enough to push max settings on 5760x1080 but at 3840x1080, if your game supports it, the OP should be able to run it at max settings and 60+ fps with a single GTX 780 or a single 7970 GHz. If this is just for flight sims, I could see a single GTX 780 or single 7970 GHz being able to push decent frame rates at 5760x1080 resolution but that is dependent on the flight sim being used as most are more CPU-heavy than GPU-heavy.

Think a gtx 780 would be the best option for the op. OP a single gtx 780 should cut it for now but later you could always sli two 780's.

True but cost-wise, the 7970 would be the better choice. While a GTX 780 would be powerful for general gaming on a single screen, I would rather go with the 7970 simply for the fact that it is more bang for your buck but maybe waiting until the R9-200 series comes out to replace the 7000 series would be better for the OP.
