smart upgrade move?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking to get another gtx 460 sc 1gb to run them in sli. Then my plan was to wait on a single card gpu to come out in the 350 price rang that would beat my sli gtx 460 and buy that card. Anyone think this eould be a good idea? Looking forward to your thoughts!

definitely seems like a good idea to me, surely you can pick up a used 460 for dirt cheap. Two of those will tie you over fine until the 600 series comes out.

yea man go with the second 460 and sit for a while. the 460 sli would be a great move. i wouldn't touch them until you cant run the game your dying to play, ie when dx 12 is forced. you should be fine for quite some time.
