Yes, and another 50 on top per card for the 2GB model, 100 per card for the 4GB model. Going for the two 660ti will roughly double my graphics power, that's quite enough. I don't play any cutting edge tech shooters, everything else is fine with slightly lower specs

Well, now I have the two. The Windforce Coolers can be quite noisy, but do their job well.

Ran Unigine Heaven and 3DMark06, Vantage and 11 for a quick first test. Under DX11 performance *did* double. Twice the FPS in Heaven, and from 6500 to 13111 in 3DMark 11. From 25000 to 32000 in Vantage, GPU score doubled, CPU of course stayed the same. Only in 3DMark06 nothing changed.
