Hey guys.

Not a hard question, just hoped some of you would know the answer if any of you went through this before.
I got a SeaSonic 850W PSU here and an Asus GTX660 OC (non TI) installed. Was wondering if it's worth it to sell it and get the GTX770 or just get another 660.
All I ever played was Fallout 3/NV and BF3 and now I'm trying to prepare for BF4, that's why I kind of need a specific solution for my situation more than a general answer. I know these games scale absolutely beautifully with SLI and I'm not afraid of any stuttering issues or future problems whatsoever.

So which is it guys? I'm leaning towards the SLI solution as it's a headache as it is trying to sell a used 660, plus it'll be $50-$60 cheaper to get a second 660 as opposed to selling what I have and getting the 770, plus I'm seeing some benches of the 660SLI beating a single 770 but every forum got its own benches and levels to test on, so I can't put my finger down on which is better.

This is not a critical question by any means, I was just thinking about the whole subject.

Thanks in advance guys.

660 SLI should be about 10-15% better. but make sure you have a SLI compatible mobo. and some game may not take advantage of SLI.

I completely understand the risk of some games not taking advantage of SLI and completely comfortable with running some games on just a single 660.
Performance wise, I really want to believe I'll get better results with a dual 660, but can you tell me which benches are you basing your info on?
Thanks :) 

BTW my specs are mentioned in my signature I think. I do have a MOBO that supports SLI.

i didn't actually use any benchmarks as i didn't find any. i just compared their specs. but still it should be 2x GTX660 should be atleast 10% better than a single GTX 770.plus a lot cheaper.
