Need opinions on GPU upgrade. - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Actually, the best option for you right now is to RMA your defective GTX 460 and pick up another GTX 460 and use them in SLI. Your power supply is more than adequate for it. It's the best option in terms of price/performance.

First, RMA your card, then see how your game performance goes. If it's still not satisfactory, pick up another GTX 460. You can find them for 120-140 after rebate.

I went with the 6850's since I'm not gonna upgrade for a while anyways and I never tried 2 gpu's. With the rebates it only came to $280 so that's not bad at all. Asus Direct CU cooler as well. Thanks for the help guys and good luck on future builds.

Sounds like you fully ignored RMA'ing your GTX460 and SLI'ing; IMO is the best option.

Maybe you could get another GTX460 while the first one is on RMA, when the first one comes back, SLI both.

I already started the RMA process but I'll be giving the replacement card to my gf. She still has a 4870 in her rig. My bad Joe, for not replying.
