Okay, here we go.

I recommend the single 980ti, for a few reasons, and thats the support for Crossfire.

What games do you play? There are many games out there that simply dont like to playball with Crossfire, and it really is a hit and a miss even if they do support it fully. My GPU's would be killed by GTAv and Battlefield, simply because they would go over 60% usage, thats not a bottleneck issue, thats a game optomization issue. I had alot of driver trouble too, including the cards 'falling out' of place due to the weight of watercooling (Which you should consider if you go dual GPU)

The single 980ti is infitly more futureproof too, as you can simply pop another one in down the road, and SLi is better than CFx when it comes to scaling etc.

My single Ti gets 100% usage in games, its using it fully, and they overclock VERY well too

Im at 1920*1080@70Hz but hope to upgrade to an ultra wide 2560*1080p monitor soon

The 980ti, bar the Titan, is the only card to be properly "1440p" ready, you should maintain 60FPS at said resolution with this card
