Why do that ? from a 8150 for a 8350 ? not much sense.
As for the sli with any of those cpus will perform about the same, if to gain a difference it was to move for a i5 ivybridge.
One other thing will you play @1080p ? cause two 670 gtx on that resolution is a massive overkill.

Yeah i know it's overkill, but not everyone is a intel fan lol, and why Not have two gtx 670's, it just that couple of people were saying bottle neck that did not make sense to me and as for the 8350 it is 15-20% better performance than the 8150 what with the 8350's piledriver so i have read whether that's true or not i shall see

It's your money, i'm not a intel fanboy just stating the obvious.
Performance between the two amd cpus in gaming are less than 5-10%.
And two 670 gtx will be a waste of money if you have a 1080p 60hz monitor, one card already does ~60 fps in any game.

No, that is a dual gpu, it will have problems with drivers, it consumes much more power (really much), the price of the 670 gtx is lower, performance is about the same (~10 % less vs 590 gtx, but when oc it can reach the 590).
And it has new features like txaa, adaptive vsync, etc.
Really for 1080p just get the 670 gtx.
No bottleneck with the fx and no worries for sli setups, just get one single from a good brand.

Hold your horses on dissing SLI.

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_6...

According to this review, a 670 gets but 27.5 FPS in Metro 2033 at 1920X1200. Admittedly, Metro is the most demanding game out now, but in one or two years it won't be. Per this review, you need dual SLI just to get decent performance (48FPS) with a single 1920X1200 display. As you can see, the 680 buys barely 5% more.

You have already ? lol...i thought you were buying it.
Then just overclock the cpu and gpu and lookout for the drivers and happy gaming.

Just stay with the one gtx 670 you have, if you - sometime down the road feel you need more power you can SLI it at that point. I don't think you will need more than 1 670 on a 1080p monitor for at least a year.

Just check the latest nvidia drivers like the 310.64.
And for the sli for metro : that game is way poor optimized, if you change some settings it just hits 60 fps and more and same quality.
If your gonna sli two 670 gtx for that game/benchmark...it's nonsense.

And that's all, happy gaming.
