Is it really worth paying double for?

I wouldn't say so, you do get a big boost in performance, but I wouldnt say its worth it, especially since the new 700 series cards are already being released. It would be best to sell the card you have now, and upgrade to a 770 or 760. That would be your best bet.

Yeah, I know there will be a fair increase in performance, but the price difference....
I suppose another way to compare is 670 FTW vs 660 SLI. The 660's would have to win that one, right?

Yes 2 660's would beat a single 670. But it would pretty much beat it by what the 670 beats the single 660 at now. I personally only like single card setups, as a lot of games have trouble with SLI and even in some SLI performs worse than a single card. Most of those problems have been fixed but there's still those games that just dont work very well. If you're willing to wait for the newer 700 series cards coming out in a week, then I would sell your current card and pay the rest for a 770 or even 760 Ti maybe.
