SLI or jump on board with AMD?

Now that AMD is getting better I'm having issues deciding on what to put into my machine. Should I get another 670 for SLI or get a 7950/7970 and eventually Crossfire?

well another 670 would pretty much destroy a single amd card, so I think you know.

The 670 is good enough. No need to upgrade that soon especially when the new gen cards are going to be out soon.

do you really need it though?, i mean the 670 is a fast card on it's own :)

then by all means go for it.
sli's been working great for me and it scales quite well in most games.

I say go for the sli, my sli 670's have been absolutely great and I have had none of the issues I've had with previous sli/xfire setups.

I went from SLI 460s to a single 670. The performance isn't as great some of the time, need to get that SLI going once again.
