Here we go,
i have spare i5-2500.

I already have a GTX 660 Ti and a z77 in the drawer.

Now, should i be going with another GTX 660 Ti in SLI or replace the i5-2500 by a i7-3770k (with a decent cooler) and O.C it.

I'm planning to get a 400R case.
All your suggestions/cross questions are appreciated.

Hi,

I think the sli will be more beneficial and will be more noticeable in performance.

for games I assume? I guess you're better of getting another 660 but what resolution are you playing on?

If at all you want to swap the cpu, go for a 4th gen haswell cpu rather than 3rd gen. This will have a better performance increase. But I still think the sli with another 660 will be the better option

hope this helps!

For that i have to buy a z87 motherboard. And i'm not planning to stack up a pile of motherboards in my house as i already have a z77 lying somewhere in the drawer. I hope it's alive though. Well thanks man, cheers :)
