Worth it to SLI?

I already have a 670, but I could get another one for just $200... Worth it or just wait another year or so?

Also, the one I have is a Galaxy, this is an Asus.. you can SLI different brands as long as it's the same card right?

Well it's really up to you. Do you get what you consider an acceptable Frame Rate on all the games you play?

If not then it might be worth it to go SLI.

Yeah, I'm pretty happy with how it is now, but I'm just worried about not being able to max out new games in the future. I maxed out Metro Last Light and The Witcher 2 and was happy with my frame rate...

Well I suggest waiting and then selling your Card and buy a new one. If you can hold out till the 800 series or later you should get a good gain from upgrading to a card of the same price.

That's a pretty good deal at $200. However, if it's an impulse buy, I'd say go for closer to $150.

I'm not saying I got 60 frames, but I got around 30 and I was fine with it.

Its really nice to have, but unless you have/going to get a 120HZ or 1440P+ monitor the gains will diminish quickly.

Only 2 games that don't support SLi (that could use it for max 60fps+ gameplay) that I have run into is CoH2 and Rome 2
