I would look at your situation and the frames you are currently experiencing and based on that if you really feel that its necessary then yes it may be a possibility but my guess is adding a second one would be unnecessary for you. What does your setup look like

CPU:
RAM:
GPU: 1x 7870
Motherboard:
PSU:

If you have a store bought machine please supply.

And do you play on a single screen? If so I would wait till the games you play give you trouble before wanting 2 cards.

Yea I would wait honestly, if you feel that your frames are suffering after a point you can then upgrade up to a CF configuration or quite possibly do to the time it would take to get there get a newer gen card.
