I am kind of stuck in a debate here with these two options. I know that the 670 FTW http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... will definitely run cooler, but I am pretty positive the 660 Superclocked http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... in SLI will perform better. My big question is what setup do you think would be better when you consider Pros & Cons of each. I am looking at what is future proof as well (i.e. possibly adding a second 670 FTW down the road). But is that even necessary? Will the two 660 Superclocked cards keep my framerates above 60 for the rest of they year (including 2013 to around September)? My biggest concern is Crysis 3 as it is rumored to be a killer on your PC.

1tb western digital
corsair 8gb vengeance (2x4)
corsair ax850

660s in SLI, I think you might be more than okay with any game they throw at you for the next year. But even so if Crysis 3 needs more than a 660 SLI can handle then I dont even think 670 in SLI will. Then again I really doubt they would make their game so demanding that would just be bad for business.

I would buy MSI's GTX 670 Power Edition uses the famous Twin Frozr IV cooler from the MSI Lightning and comes with a large clock speed boost out of the box, making its default clock speed even higher than GTX 680 stock clocks. MSI is asking a $30 price premium for their card, which doesn't look unreasonable, given the improved cooling and higher clocks.

Go for the 670 and add another in the future, that's what i'm going to do when Crysis 3 comes out :D
