I'm unsure what to do, because I know a single, more powerful card is generally better at reducing problems, and the framerates are much more consistent (don't need to worry about scaling) and if I sell my old 660ti, I'd have enough to buy a GTX 770 if I put in the money I'd saved for the second one..

make the decision based on the kind of games you play and multi GPU support for those games. GTX 660 Ti SLI is much faster than GTX 770. SLI is generally quite robust but will have some quirks of multi GPU. the recent game COH 2 does not have SLI / CF support.

most games do have good multi GPU support but some like COH 2 can be problematic. so if you want slower perf but the most consistent and smoothest perf go for GTX 770. otherwise grab a GTX 660 Ti and go SLI.

I say wait few months for AMD cards to come out and make your decision then. Both 770 and 660ti price would have dropped by then(depending on AMD performance too).
Also, even if you go for SLI and you are not pleased for whatever reason you can return it within the time margin and go the other way.

buy another one and SLI it. a single 660 Ti is enough for those games that doesn't support SLI.

My reasoning was similar, if a game doesn't support SLI, it's most likely old enough for a single 660ti to run it just fine... hmmmm... SLI looks beast, and power or temperature won't be an issue, and now that I think about it, buying a second 660ti would be considerably cheaper O.o
And plus I'm not going AMD because I like the advanced PhysX support you get from Nvidia's cards, nothing personal, just I like that feature smile.gif (so no I'm not an Nvidia fanboy, I just prefer Nvidia for single-monitor gaming)
