Less VRAM not withstanding, SLI 460's aren't exactly pushovers.

More of a sidegrade IMO.

Congrats though...welcome to...Sparta?

I hope it's not for your sig rig monitor since it wouldn't benefit from the extra ram, actually it would be worse since the extra latency

I just want the vram since I do plan on playing BF3 and Skyrim.

I know they are faster, but I want to make sure I'm getting the most out of my 1080P.

Plus I can always SLI my 580 later on down the road. Go dual monitor, and eff stuff up.

My sig monitor is my tv. I will buying a monitor just for this coming up. I just can't decide if I want ips or led.

Don't go dual monitor...dual + FPS fails hard.

I don't like driver sweeper, has the potential to mess things up even when you follow directions. The new nVidia drivers setup allow you to perform clean installs by checking a checkbox, that's all you need.

So you don't think Skyrim with mods will be a vram hog?
