amd fx 6300 vs 4th gen I5 4670K vs two 660SLI

Currently I have an AMD FX 6300 6 core overclocked to 4.10 GHz and a gigabyte 660 OC edition. I'm looking to upgrade something, should I go with another 660 in SLI ( I heard its equivalent to a 680) or get the Intel I5-4670K and new motherboard? I use my computer strictly for gaming, recording my gameplay, and uploading it to youtube... and of course just searching the web.

    The additional GPU hands down. While the i5 will be better then your FX, you will not notice too significant a difference. With the additional GPU you will. That's what I recommend doing. If you want to upgrade your CPU you could upgrade to the 8350 and not have to get a new MB, but I don't think that would be worth it. Basically I'd get the new GPU. Hope this helps!
  2. FX_6300 should be stronghold enough. Esp when u've OCed. U won't find much difference w/ i5-4670K. I suggest u to wait till AMD Steamroller CPUs coming out then u may update it without changing mobo.
  3. Thanks for the reply guys! One more question, will my Corsair GS 600W gaming edition power supply be sufficient?
