Some say its better to have just one powerful card instead of two mid-ranged cards.
But some say the GTX 660's have a 10% performance increase.

PRICE: GTX 770 > GTX 660 SLI

Both these statements are true. Two mid-range video cards in SLI/Crossfire will usually yield better performance at a lower/equivalent price, UNDER IDEAL CONDITIONS.

Most of the time it is better to use a single high-end GPU, as multi-gpu configurations have some issues: microstutter, more power/heat, shared memory, some games simply won't take advantage of multiple GPU, difficulty of upgrading, etc...

If you know that, for the games and resolution that you plan to play, a dual GPU setup would work, it might be more cost effective to go that way if your current hardware can accommodate multiple cards.
