780ti single or SLI dual config is the most you need. Don't bother with anything else. If you do enough research I guarantee you will come to the same conclusion.
As for the motherboard and what kinda of 780ti. I leave the rest up to you.
I just researched the 780, turns out it is the same chip as a titan, just a little slower and it doesn't have the computing options the titan has (I really don't need that, I don't mine bitcoins and I am not a research lab). So the real question is: should I get 2 780s in sli or wait on the 790. Thanks all help is appreciated.
I should note this is for a single 1600x900 monitor.

In that case I think i'll just go with 1 780 for now and see how that works. So far though my 560 has been able to max most of the games I play, but it has stumbled with some of the newer ones (assassin's creed 4, theif, x rebirth) granted X Rebirth was poorly optimized. Thanks all you have saved me a lot of money and time.
There was a thread on this recently, look here:
Thanks, this is exactly what i'm planning on doing, this way I don't have to buy a new cpu, gpu, cpu cooler, motherboard, and power supply at the same time. The cost of this project just came down from 3,500 to 1,000, because I may still need a new power supply.
