Should I buy a second GTX 760 or wait to upgrade to a better single gpu.

Here's what I have right now:
2560 x 1440 monitor
i7 3770
GTX 760 2GB
8 GB RAM

With graphics cards being $250 + Batman: Arkham Orgins, I figure the cards really only $200. With the 2560 x 1440 monitor and the boost in graphics for games in the coming months, I want to be able to keep my games running smoothly. So I could upgrade to a dual 760 now or wait a year and pick up a card for around $400-500. If I go dual 760's, I don't plan on upgrading for about 2 years.

You would need a 4gb 760 for 1440p, 2 2gb 760 won't cut it.

You'll need a more powerful gpu and more VRAM for that resolution.

Sell the 760 while it's still fairly new, and use that money to help pay for a 4GB 770 (at least, that's what I did when I got my 1440p monitor.)
