I would get a GTX 670. The SLI GTX 560 Ti combination can beat a GTX 580, but a GTX 670 performs better than the GTX 580. Overclocking a GTX 670 can give you better performance than a GTX 680, just to give you a better idea of the power the GTX 670 can deliver.

Speaking of power, the GTX 670 will also use significantly less power with its new 28nm architecture, and the fact that it's a single card, not two needing to individually draw power.

As for benchmarks, there is a great tool for finding them. Google. Just search it up: "GTX 560 Ti SLI Benchmarks" If you want here are some:

Like I said, just search around for some, and you'll be surprised with what you find.

gtx 670 is the way to go!if you do sli you will be limited by your gpu vram. bf3 needs more than 1gb in that resolution for ultra!

The 660 ti has a smaller memory bus that will restrict it in demanding situations. Just for your reference, i upgraded my 560 ti to a 670 power editon last night and ran 3DMark11 before and after. The graphics score when from roughly 6700 to 9800 if i remember correctly. So a bit jump. 2 560 ti's will still only have 1gb gddr5 so wont make up that difference.

The MSI PE 670 is awesome MSI Power Edition Architecture Boosts Overclocking Potential by 22.5%
The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition graphics card is based on the MSI Power Edition architecture: Afterburner's Triple Overvoltage allows the GPU, Memory and PLL(Aux) voltages to be adjusted. The Enhanced PWM design provides 25% more current than the reference design to ensure high stability during overclocking.

Twin Frozr IV: 20°C Cooler and 11.7dB Quieter than Reference Board
The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition is equipped with MSI's latest Twin Frozr IV Thermal Design. MSI's exclusive Dust Removal technology automatically reverses the fans at startup to prevent dust build-up dust and optimize the cooling module's ability to dissipate heat.

Patented Propeller Blade technology provides 20% more air flow over conventional fans and increases the effective cooling area. When combined with dual 8 cm temperature-controlled fans, SuperPipe technology, and a nickel-plated copper base, temperatures are effectively reduced by up to 20°C and noise by 11.7dB!

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.I'd highly recommend it

^^ I got mine of this recommendation and I am very happy with it, runs quieter than the twin frozr 3 aswell.

yeah, what those guys said. ^ plus, ur resolution is only 1920x1080.. sli is usually better for multiple monitors.

I was so unhappy with 560ti's in SLI that I sold them both and got a 670. IMHO the 670 is worth it over the 660 if you like turning up the eye candy. Toms review said the 660ti also stuttered when under alot of stress such as 1080p with AA and AF enabled.
