i prefer gaming on a single monitor thats about 23-24" thats a good size for me =].

trying to get the most bang for my buck. 460 SLI compared to a 560 SLI

or a single 460 compared to a 560 compared to a 560 ti .

at the end of the year... possible a 6950 unlocked to a 6970 ? xfire it .
or just a single 6990.

i just need something decent , that'll last me the next 5-6 months. anything better than my 9800 . xP
Is your budget constrained at the moment?

I'd have to agree that a 460/560 SLI is probably the best bang for your buck. A 6870 x-fire will also be a beast.

A 6990 or gtx 590 is the only card that will trounce that set up.

xfire 6870 is too pricey atm for a minor upgrade before a big one at the end of the year.

doing a 460 SLI would be around 300 tops .
while doing 560 sli (not ti) would be like ... 360.

currently im leaning towards 460 SLI . is MSI the best vendor for these 460 cards , i like EVGA , i want a 1024 mb one not a 768 mb one though, any recommendations?

Sizzle linked this back on page 1:

That's a ridiculous deal considering it's factory OC'd to 560 clocks and comes with a top of the line air cooler. You can SLI two of those for $270 after rebates... you'll be hard pressed to find a better price/performance option.

Yep that's a killer deal if you don't mind rebates. And most likely once you get them in it will make you think twice about upgrading again in 6 months. @ 1920 X 1080 I'm lowering AA down a bit to keep a min. 120 FPS......... I'm just looking at switching mine over for a single card solution to take up less room on my board. (I'd like use of a PCI slot for a change ) Power wise they got it to spare.

I use to play BC2 with a 8800GT @ High settings at 1920x1080 with 0xAA, 1xAF, HBAO off, vsync off & shadows medium/low. And it looked great! Make sure you turn off HBAO.

Yes sizzle wins this thread with that killer hawk talon deal, nothing will beat it at that price or even for price/performance in general.

The 460 Hawk Talon's factory OC makes it essentially equal to a stock 560 (and at that price, it's a damn good buy... those cards were over $220 ~6 months ago).

The 560-Ti is a bigger step forward and has 384 CUDA cores, but that's most likely out of your price range.
This is the truth, I hate getting people telling me that the 560 non-ti is 30% faster than the 460 clock for clock, and better at tessellation to boot because "the 500 are better at tessellation" I facepalmed so hard I almost couldn't yell how wrong he was... almost.
