At low resolutions they may be similar (I don't personally know) but given that 8800GT's generally have only 512MB, I'd imagine that at higher resolutions (i.e. 1080p and above) the SLI setup would fall on its face in a LOT of gaming scenarios where a 460 would not ... esp. not a 460 1GB.

I would find it pretty surprising though if a dual-gpu solution w/only 224 total shaders would actually perform comparably to a single-gpu with 336 shaders, esp. given that SLI doesn't scale 100%, and given that Fermis have more efficient and powerful shaders than the previous generation cards
