So should I try and push em or say to heck with it since.....they'll run anything anyway? I have yet to pair em up with 3 27"s to race thesurroundgamer but maybe ill drag a cpl screens from upstairs down to the PC room to try it out.

Why 'push'em' if they run everything now? Overclocking takes more power and it is power that you would just be wasting for no good cause. (Other than a higher electricity bill.)
If in the future the frame rates come down enough that you see stutter or something, then I would 'push it'.

Exactly, this is why I don't suggest multi-video card systems because a single card can take care of up to 2560x1600 on maximum detail at smooth framerates easily. And if you're getting over 60FPS, there's no point, because most monitors have a refresh rate of that and all you're going to get is screen tearing.

I agree for the most part. I dont care if you have 4 Titans, you aren't running every game at 60fps 100% the time. Just the crummy "coding" in some areas of some games will slow even beastly systems down. But with TWO 780s I am seeing that those instances are farfar fewer so, why not. I

Unless you want to play star citizen on max settings.

But hey, that game isn't out and won't be for at least a year and a half.

My wallet will hate my when that game comes out though, because I doubt my wimpy single 760 can handle that game.

That to me just suggests the game isn't optimized. Like how CryEngine 2 is a performance killer but the same machine will run CryEngine 3 better for the same visual quality.
