Overclock the 560 a few mhz, stay with that a little. Then get another one for SLI.

My 560 is overclocked to 1ghz, you don't buy the most ovetclockable card and not overclock lol:p

I'd say your computer is just fine. I wouldn't necessarily blow even more money just to maintain constant FPS. If that was the case, you would be buying a new card every year. Just overclock your card, and you should be fine.

Best solution

Of course it matters. If you have a good use for your 560 & can afford a new gtx 670, then by all means go for it. Anyone else who will have use of that server with a 560 on it will have a good time playing too.

Alright should I go with a factory overclocked 670 like an evga classified or a reference 680 there's only a $70 difference

$250 for 580 is great bargain. 1 should be enough & you should already get the consistent fps in your games. But since you have earmarked $500 for a GPU upgrade, I say go for the 2x580.

Whatever, the 580 will still give you consistent great fps in a 1920x1080, I would like to add. Higher resolution or Triple monitor is different story if you want to go that route. That's why you have to get the 2x580.
