So the title pretty much says it all. I currently have a GTX 560 (non-ti) and the performance isn't what I would like it to be.

Should I buy another 560 (would have to be superclocked, regular version is discontinued) for SLI or go with a Kepler card?

560 and 660 are pretty much same price, but with the 660 I could sell the old 560 on here to recoup some costs.

If newer is the better option, is the 660Ti that much better than the non Ti and worth the extra $70?

I have ZERO experience with AMD, how does that stack up to the 660Ti?

IMO forget the 660ti

660 - 7870 - 670

depending on the 7870 card, that can overclock to 660ti/7950 performance.

I would also choose between the 660ti and 7870 and avoid SLI. Check some benchmarks and reviews of each and see which one plays the games you like the best. I use both companies gpus for different things. I render 3D and fold on Nvidia, game on AMD and use a Firepro for workstation apps. It will give you the best bang for your buck by choosing the right card for what you want to do.

I think the 660 falls in the twice the performance of 1 560 area.
