Wait

Just a few more months... the new cards are RIGHT around the corner. You could either score a bargain on an old card, or jump up to a new card.

Do you game on your secondary rig? If gaming is not a priority on it, I suggest you follow NarwhaleAu's advice and hold off on future cards.

If gaming is a priority on the second rig, I just upgraded my 5770 to a 660 for $194. It was a pretty sweet upgrade, as I'm sure you know from your 660 Ti.
