I dont know why do you want to SLI beacuse it gives more problems than not. Make some more money and than buy 670/680 (if you like nvidia). And If you really want to SLI you might need better PSU.

better preformance
no need to get whole bunch of money for better (standalone) card
-
driver problems
worse price-pref ratio
cooling problems
wattage problems
most games dont really do much with 2 GPUs

Your wrong on all counts accept he does need a better psuI own 2 gigabyt gtx 660 cards and sli works flawlessly in every game ive played.2 gtx 660 in sli equals the performance of a titan obliterates 1 gtx 680 for less money.as far as heat goes there cool top card hits 65 max under full load and bottom card doesnt even see 60.

660 alone works fluid too. That your titan calculation is wrong. As for the heat you will see difference if you OC card or if you have bad cooled case. But just try to OC them and see what happens :o 

For the PSU you should get better beacuse pin and wattage problems + I would stay away from this PSU until I see some good rewievs (go with corsair or something like that)

I guess your a gamer. Why 3770 over i5 3570 since it gives 1-2% more for 100$. Use i7 only in a workstation.
And you would get troubles with sliing with that PSU beacuse it only has 2 6+2 pin power connectors. 660 alone uses that much!

uhh for starters my calculations for 2 gtx660's vs titan is spot on.2 gtx 660 non ti = 20% faster then gtx 680 and titan is roughly 20% faster then gtx 680.You cant overclock 660 non ti very much there not made for it.They are simply not overcker cards.I got about 80 mhz overclock out of them and it added no heat at ll.Unless you have owned them then maybe you should refrain from speaking of them just saying

comon guy 1 660 non ti has 1 6 pin cnnector 2x6 pin is enough to sli.He should get a bigger psu tho like a 700 watt but you obviously dont own a 660 since you would know they only need 1 6 pin connector for each card not 2!

And where you got that info?
Anyway not every card is an overclocker. Some can do it more and some less. Gigabyte usually makes good overclockers (but for serious OCing Asus is the best). How did you overclock? Any voltage tweaking?

Yep messed up that... But 600 watt is enough.

no 660 non ti none will overclock good at all.Just the way they were made

hi guys again,
i don't know if this makes a difference, im form Malaysia and the GTX 660's (ASUS,GIGABYTE.etc.) comes with only 6-pin ...i still have an extra 6-pin from my psu...

thats not true at all, they dont overclock well out of the box, they require a bios mod to increase voltage to oc well

@ OP, i would advise you upgrade the cpu to an i5 before you sli. if you got another 660 you would not see much in the way of performance gains, no gain in some games that are more cpu limited.

Thanks for supporting me (thats not sarcastic)! I was trying to tell that for the whole thread.

And i5 is needed beacuse of 4 cores (each of them is good) so it can bring data to 660s (not that i3 cant but this one can make 100% load on both GPUs).

Maybe one 670 would be better than two 660s... At least in most cases... At least in 2013...

And for the OP its nothing wrong if you have one cable left

your still wrong how was he supporting you? 2 gtx 660's will beat a single 670 in almost all cases.
I thougt it was a forgone conclusion that op was upgrading his cpu anyways so in that case a gtx 660 sli rig will beat a single 670 and it isnt even close.You still dont get that gtx 660 sli will about equal a titan ive compared my benches to a titan and there pretty even

i think you missed the point. with the i3 it wont matter if he gets one 660 or two, you wont see good perfromance gains unless your pairing it with a high end i5. Better to get spend the same amount of money and get a 3570k. That will boost his low end frame rates in most games, less fps drops.

I agree a new proccesor is in order however he would see a huge gain even on the cpu he has now.His I3 is very comparabe to a phenom 965 be and i seen the kind of scaling i should have seen with 2 gtx 480's and a 965 be.there is only about a 5% difference between a 480 and a 660 non ti.That cpu is still plenty to handle 2 660 non ti no problem however thats about as much as i would go.2 7950's or 2 670's would probably be a waste but not so much the gtx 660 sli

Not understanding why your mad.You make it sound like sli doesnt work in any game and im telling you it has worked in every game ive tried.2 GTX 660's will blow a gtx 670 out of the water and for the same price.Not saying anyone is wrong here but after what i seen 2 gtx 660's can do i would go that route over a single 670.I was just pointing out that your wrong about there being alot of sli issues because there simply is not.Sure maybe a few games wont work with sli but the vast majority do.2 gtx 660 sli = 1 titan so to say this is a stupid option is misinforming on your part.
