GTX 570 SLI on TX750w and i7-920

I have had this PC with a single GTX 260, TX750, and an i7-920 for about 4 years. Around 6 months ago, I purchased a GTX 570. I am currently debating whether I should purchase another GTX 570 and go SLI. The only thing that is holding me back is that im not sure if my PSU that is 4 years old and my CPU will be able to handle two 570's. I am also thinking if its better just to purchase a 670 or 7950.
-Thanks

    What make is your PSU and wattage? Your CPU can handle the cards just fine, no issue there. I think it's best to go and grab a 7950 and use your 570 for PhysX or sell it. The GTX 670 and AMD R7950 trade blows and the new drivers have improved AMD cards a lot. So check your PSU, report back, and if you can afford it, go and grab a AMD Radeon HD 7950. But if you see a better deal for GTX 670 then grab that. Keep in mind that the HD 7950 comes with Crysis 3 and Bioshock!
  2. Also, if you can grab a 570 for cheap then SLI it and wait for the GTX 700 and AMD 8000 series. Then you can do a completely new build!
  3. I find that the gtx 570s go for > 200, so I think it is better and cheaper to sell it and by a 7950.
