Should I buy 2 galaxy gtx460 758mb for 190 for both ? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I would just get 2 x 5770 as you own one already. You can easily get another one <$100.
The performance difference between SLI 460 vs. CF 5770 usually around 15-20 fps in most games. If you were to OC your 5770s which you already have than you should get as good as the 460s. So save yourself some money and risk of the 460s to be a scam/bad condition, and grab yourself a brand new 5770 for around $100. I just don't like buying used video cards unless I know the person, and he my buddy that I know won't screw me over.

GTX 460 768MB SLI is faster than HD 5770 CFX. it's faster in single card configuration as well.
$190 is such a steal. i got mines at $230

I would OC each card first to see what each are capable of, and then OC them in SLI at your desired clocks that both cards can handle.
