the tx750 will handle two 460's no problem, under max load in furmark SLI'd 470s reach 740w so those will be fine. Also I don't think I would go for the 570 especially if you plan to overclock as I have seen quite a few get killed. p.s. SLI 460s even beats a 580.

Get another GTX460, they scale pretty good and easily beat a single 570.

And yes your psu will handle the job more than fine.

Goodluck and Welcome to the forum

The dual GTX 460 should perform better under most games. If the game scales horribly or doesn't support SLI, obviously it will perform worse. However, I would get the GTX 570 just for "future proofing" since you have the option of SLIing down the road and you don't have that option with the GTX 460. Oh and yes your PSU will handle SLI GTX 460 easily.

Exactly, GTX 460 sli maybe perform better now but thre is no opportunity for an upgrade per say. sure you could get yourself a 570 down the road but if you get one now.. youll pretty much match the 460 duo and then can destroy future games with a cheaper second one in a few months time

Allright so getting two 460s would be the smarter choice. I also found an article that states that the 460 can be overclocked a lot more than any other video card in the 500s and 400s series so that is another reason I would get a 460. Thanks for the fast replies!!
