I agree with Antroman on motherboard and memory choice, however if you have some time, I would hold off for Devils Canyon CPU's. The Evo is a great SSD, I would go for a larger capacity, the 480gb. Also if you are gaming at 1080p, I see no real value in CF or SLI. Get a factory overclocked GTX 780Ti and spend the money saved on the larger SSD and 4790K CPU.
Just IMO of course.

2 asus 780 will do for 4k resolution or triple monitor about 23'' ? can it be ?

Triple Monitor, maybe.
No to 4k. You'd need to raise the budget to 3000USD to get good 4k fps.
