2 560 is still 560. bit more load capacity but not better performance.
Just want to point out that the 3D Mark 06 score for the GTX 970 is not correct, ran it myself at default settings and got 27620, there is no way a 560ti is going to beat the 970 at anything
I've got 2 GTX 560 Ti in SLI mode. I think I'm ok for a while.
