Why? If you want to upgrade, you'll likely get better performance out of 2 760s in an SLI.

Is it EVGA? Look into their step-up program.

If you're playing at 1080p and 60hz upgrading now would be a waste.

Then why do you think it's a good idea to preemptively upgrade, when you know the price will drop on the hardware you wish to purchase?

you might as well wait for the 800 series to release and buy 860 sli..i know a lot of ppl that are going to do this

it's going to be the cost of a 880 with more performance

the 760 can run everything right now, if you can find a cheaper 760 buy that to sli
i think it's nice

Video cards rarely and i mean rarely (especially flagship cards) get significant price drops, the GTX 780ti is going to cost $699 and in a year i guarantee it will still cost $600+
