You can, but both will use only 1gb each - Remember, that still means you'll only have 1gb useable in game since both GPUs need to have the same vRam information

Not necessarily, SLI'ing them would still give you a boost, but your current card will basically drop to a 1gb - @1080p most of the time even with that you'd be ok, but with high levels of AA and anything above 1080p, you definitely want more than 1gb.
If your sure you wanna SLI, should try and find a 2gb model, that way your card's extra vram wont go to waste

I'd wait (and AM Waiting :P) for the next gen cards
What you've got right now is very decent, and should last you till the new cards come out...
All depends on your financial situation TBH, If you've got the money - why not shell out on a 680 :P
