best budget cards to SLI with? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
wow those 460 1gbs are actually really tempting..yeah old tech but at that price its pretty darn awesome bang for buck.

I've read that the SE version is terrible so I'll stay clear from those.

do the 460s generate as much heat as the 470s?

PS: and no, its not for my current rig.

That's not the 560 Ti, that's the slower 560.

The GTX 460 1gb cards are superb and run much cooler then the 470's. I agree to say away from the SE model.

For the going prices, this would be my choice.

Yes, some games might see a 30% increase, but 9/10 won't see better than a 10%. When overclocked, the difference is even smaller (580s OC further from stock than 560s).

Two of these:

Is your best bet OP, if you can afford the extra $60, going to these:

would be a worthwhile upgrade seeing as they have the lifetime where as the other card only has a 3-year. Plus, you'll get PS9 and have a copy to give away

Personally, I would definitely suggest a 570 over 2 460s though, same performance, more vram, less heat, less power draw, no SLI issues, and an upgrade path. Two 560s on the other hand will outperform a 570 easily.

Here's crysis warhead at the stated resolutions 560Ti SLI vs 580

The EVGA 560Ti has been linked 3 times this thread for 192 after MIR, lol
