GTX 460 SLI vs. GTX 560ti

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I recently RMAed my GTX 260, and EVGA has kindly sent me this GTX 460 as a replacement.

Now I'm deciding if I should sell the replacement 460 and pick up a 560ti, or just grab a second 460 for SLI. The problem with grabbing another 460 is that the 460 that I want for SLI does not offer a lifetime warranty, and I prefer having that available to me. However, SLI 460s would be much better than a single 560ti, and the 460 would be pretty cheap after MIR and selling Photoshop Elements 9.

Grabbing a 560ti after selling the 460 would be a relatively cheap upgrade, considering it has a MIR and I could sell the Photoshop Elements 9 software that comes with it, not to mention it would include a lifetime warranty. There's also the potential of adding a second for SLI when prices finally drop.

Another option is to sell my 460 and pick up two EE 460s with lifetime warranties, but that would just be silly.

What would you guys do if you were in my situation?

First, ask yourself. Is a single 560ti ENOUGH? What res do you play at?

Honestly, I was content with my GTX 260 at 1920x1080 before it bit the dust. That may change with Battlefield 3 and Skyrim right around the corner, though.

Another option is to sell the GTX460 and add a 2nd GTX285 to do SLI with your current one. GTX285 SLI is more or less like a GTX570. This option, of course, depends on finding a good condition second hand GTX285.

And, selling the GTX460 and buying two EE GTX460s (with lifetime warranty) is not that silly at all, IMHO.
