So im getting another 780, i got a mobo with 3 possible pci lanes, for looks i want my old card in the top position and this one below it, but as this card is (most likely) better than that one i have, i want it as my main in case the game doesnt support SLI so that i use my most powerful card.

 

So how does this work? because so far google isnt talking :P

Well as fast as I know the top one is the "Master" card so you need to put the best card at the top, not the best looking one but the best performing one.

This is why you should not get an FX CPU for ANY scenario other than rendering on a budget http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/286142-fx-8350-r9-290-psu-requirements/?p=3892901 http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/266481-an-issue-with-people-bashing-the-fx-cpus/?p=3620861

with manual I actually meant your mobo, it should state where to put what the best way.

Well, since it is Nvidia you can see  which is the main card when you are in Nvidia Control Panel.
I believe the master card is the one the display is plugged into, however I am not sure about that so please do not quote me on that.

 

You could try that and if does not work, just switch the cards to be a less aesthetic setup but a more functional one

 

can someone correct me on "aesthetic", I am not sure about the spelling of this word... :(

serious? 2 780´s outperform a 980 by far.. and i already have one so its also HALF the cost of a single 980...

I don't have two gpus and the 980 just came out you troll, try harder if you're gonna be a troll because you're just making yourself look stupid right now. Especially since you have a 780ti that is just as outdated as my 780, go away scrub.
