Yea, 470s are a great deal at the moment, SLIing a pair is pretty awesome price/performance wise. Just keep in mind, it will heat up your room quite a bit. If that's an issue, then it's not the setup for you.

560 Ti. Much more energy efficient, produces significantly less heat (specifically the Twin Frozr II) and works just as good as two 460s. Buy this pup a mate and together they slightly exceed the 580!

The difference in energy efficiency is heavily exaggerated. The 470 is faster and cheaper. It's probably the best price/performance available right now.

Like I said, just go non reference.
In progress.

Relative performance at 1080p among stock speed GTX465 : GTX470 : GTX560Ti is like 76% : 94% : 100%.
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/N...560_Ti/27.html

Assume a conservative 70% SLI scaling for GTX465 and assume the worst case scanrio that it cannot be unlocked to a GTX470, then the performance ratio between GTX465 SLI : GTX560 Ti is like 130% : 100%.

As they are of similar price to you, I certainly would go for the GTX465 SLI. That 30% peformance advantage is significant and outweighs other factors like heat issue.

Top end 560 Ti's offer near 570 performance, so, SLI non reference 560 Ti's would out perform SLI 470's.

Though, you can't beat SLI 460's if you get them on sale and with a rebate.

It looks as if you can afford SLI 470's too.

Thread Starter 
Thank you all for the feedback. It is alot to think about. With 460 and 470 prices so low, sli is certainly attainable for under 300 bux. I guess it comes down to upgradability and performance. I'd certainly like a pair of 580's or 570's but the budget is set at around $400. It's really a toss up between 470 sli (which could go 3 way if I need) or 560 sli. my board supports up to 4 way sli. I don't think I would ever go that route for 1920 X1080 gaming. I don't see adding additional monitors in the near future. I guess the question is 470 or 560 now. I have plenty of psu for either, and I will check out what the reviews have to say about both. I remember some sort of voltage tweak on the 470 that made it a shear beast. 480 specs pretty easily if my memory serves me correctly. I know that the 560 is lacking in physical processing units, but compensates in pure speed. decisions, decisions..... Too much to contemplate tonight... must look up more specs!

You could pick up a pair of Refurb PNY GTX 465's that may be unlockable to 470's, for around ~$220 (109.99 ea) They're on NewEgg, and there is a thread in the Online Deals Section about them.
Mine will be coming tomorrow, hopefully a black PCB and unlockable
Here's the thread:
http://www.overclock.net/online-deal...-new-post.html

Nevermind, it seems they have soldout now
Check out some of the cards on EVGA's B-Stock:
http://www.evga.com/products/prodlist.asp?switch=20
What about the EVGA GeForce GTX 460 2Win for $249.99? It's dual GTX 460's on one PCB.
Or SLI 460 2GB from Evga, roughly ~$300

Only get a 4xx series card if it is using after market cooling. Reference cooling is no good and you will be kicking yourself. I'd say get a 560 ti now, and sli later on.
