Amd releases are not far away now so I would sell those 660ti's and see if 8xxx/9xxx brings the gtx 770 prices down enough for you to get an sli setup thumb.gif if waiting is a no go, it doesn't seem like you'll need to upgrade anyway, scaling isn't that great, also the extra heat and power consumption

Give us some info on what games/ applications and what monitor(s) you're using and we can give more accurate answers

I would stick with what you have for now, and as games gradually come out you will get the feel for if you need to upgrade or not. I see no reason to upgrade if your having no problems playing the games you want to play. Buying and rebuying middle range cards often is not practical. 2cents.gif
