I currently have a MSI GTX 670 PE that isn't cutting it (1440p 120hz). I think the core is 1280mhz, the memory is 1700mhz.

Would you suggest me get another for around $310-$320

or

try and sell it for $370 (if i'm lucky - aus ebay)

and get two GTX 770s from amazon for $820

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CU9GOAE/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

$150-200 difference

Anyone know how these run at max over-clock?

The 770s would only be ~5-10% faster as they are basically overclocked 680's. so if you think its worth the hassle, sell the 670 and get the 770s, but the 670 sli option would be easier, cheaper, and barely slower

Sli GTX 670 will be less hassle.

And only around 10% slower than the GTX 770 / 680

Get another GTX 670 for 315$

How do you get that price ($820). If I'm reading it right you're in Australia and 2 of those will come to ~$1010 without currency conversion (with currency conversation) and of course as it's >$1000 you'll get taxed too.

I also can't see you being able to sell your existing card for that price as it's 2GB (no matter what the boost is). So I voted for grabbing another 670 and be happy knowing you got them for less than a Titan/780 and you've got a faster system.

It comes to $893 with postage & currency conversion. I didn't realise USD had increased in value so much - about a month ago the aus dollar was higher than us. I will probably just get another 670.

Like others have said, go GTX 670 SLI since GTX 770 is just an overclocked GTX 680 and will be marginally faster VS GTX 670.
