I ended up picking up a GTX 760 for a buck twenty yesterday (used) but I figure, what the heck, if I run across another at (close to) that price I can SLI them and get 780'ish performance for less...

PCI-e 3.0 cards aren't at the point where they benefit from the added bandwidth over 2.0 so, yes, it will work just fine.

I just did a wish list over at Newegg with all the upcoming parts, ram, CPU, SSD and GPU and it's $646 and change. This is going to be spread out over some months but I'm sure looking forward to it.

From what I've been reading, when you run all slots loaded and bump up the core it kind of stresses the imc and can lead to instability or outright errors. Lowering the ram clock reduces the stress...

I wonder if you're getting errors from the imc because you're running a full loadout on the slots. You might try clocking your ram down one step and tightening up the timings a tad.

I was just re-reading this and you were a bit dismayed about the lower physics score on the new rig, I think I can shed a bit of light on that. The physics score is not based on the GPU, rather it's...

After looking into your CPU I see it's socket 1366 which has been pretty much abandoned. The good news is that from what I've read, you only see a marginal difference between PCIe 2.0 and 3.0 In the...
