1440p is something ive looked into but not needed asap and also you need alot of gpu power to run that res i think so a single gpu and parts upgrade for me before that

I have a 285 system and it can throw around games really nice at 1080. Smooth play back and a nice feature set for some future use.
how does the r9 285 handle 64 player bf4? that will probably be the most demanding game i play, although not to say that it will always be as there are a few more intense games i havent even played that seem quiet popular i.e crisis 3
