I've never used SLI before, but when I bought my motherboard I made sure it had SLI. Now that my 1060 is not as powerful or good as it once was I'm debating buying another 1060. The same 1060 that I have is going for roughly $130 on ebay. Should I go for it? Anything I should be aware of beforehand?

It's not worth it, imo. Cut your losses and just upgrade your GPU. Some games dont optimize SLI very well, and it's a headache to get to notably work.

This I think. I thought they didn’t have the sli connectors.

Only the 1070 and up supports SLI. And like everyone said, it's always better to upgrade to a single more powerful graphics card. Only consider SLI if you already have the most powerful graphics card available and need even more GPU power.

Maby one day we will have it where SLI works across 100% games.

Maybe, though it seems most devs don't care at all about it in most cases

Scumbag Nvidia killed SLI by making lower tier cards not capable of using it. Couldnt have people buying 2 cheap cards and getting performance of the expensive models for way less money. Last time SLI made sense for a price per performance stand is when people were SLI 2 GTX260. Chalk the death of SLI up to Nvidia being their usual anti-consumer selves.
