I think that none of those choices are bad, I'll go over what I think about most of them but in general you're doing a great job in doing your own research and making good decisions. Normally I would have like 3-4 things to tell you that you did just straight up wrong, but none of those choices are bad at all.

Okay so about each option

SLI 470 would be plenty of power and plenty of VRAM for just about anything you'd want to throw at it. The only real downsides to this will be heat and noise, the 470s are not exactly cool or quiet cards. If you can put up with those things, and I mean really put up with them tell yourself that the noise will be terrible before you buy so that if you get them it's not as bad as you thought instead of getting them and not being able to stand them, then SLI 470s would be a great choice IMO.

If you wanted to go the SLI 560ti route then I would recommend the SLI 460 instead. The only advantage that the SLI 560tis would have would being about 20% faster, but honestly with SLI either of these cards you won't be lacking pure processing power. They both still share the same advantages and disadvantages like running relatively cool and quiet, OCing really well, but not having gobs of VRAM. 1Gb should be enough for 1050 for a while because most games don't even break a gig at 1080p so having "only 1Gb" at 1050 wouldn't be bad, I just said it because it's the only real drawback of this option. The added benefit of the 460s would be that they are considerably cheaper and the only sacrifice is in the processing power, which as I said you will not be lacking with two of these cards in SLI.

I'm going to lump the last two options together because they are quite similar in my mind. Basically with these two choices, you are getting similar power to the SLI 460s but you are paying much more for the minor benefit of only having to run 1 GPU. That's basically it. You're getting all the same power but you're paying a price premium for them being newer and the faster single GPus available. As you move up the price bracket you get less and less performance increase per dollar as you start to pay more for "e-peen" if you will. So the two cheaper cards in SLI options offer much better bang for the buck.

I think if I were in your shoes I would go SLI 460s, but that's only because I don't like noisy cards. If you think you want mind noisy GPUs, then my recommendation would be the 470 SLI by a fair margin, then the SLI 460s, then the 580 (if you decide you really just want to get the best and not have to deal with SLI and two GPUs), then the 560tis, and finally the 570.

470's arent really that loud when you set up a fan profile imo
Mine are now watercooled so there dead silent
post #54 of 107
WC isn't silent buddy.

And I just wanted him to tell himself it's gonna be really loud and annoying so when he gets it he's pleasantly surprised, instead of hearing that it's not that bad and then getting it and not being able to stand it.

Yeah,well to be honest,i play 90% of the time with my wireless headphones+mic.

My antec 1200 is set always to push the fans to their highest settings...
So noise...oh my!!! im used to it....specially with my gtx 260 being at 70-80% all the time now since its getting so old and cant handle new games too much lol...i just played BRINK for like 40 minutes,....and with vsync on and antialiasing my card was at freakin 83,.........while my system remains at about 27-29 degree....

its not noise im concern about,its freakin heat...
all my components except that gtx 260 is cold lol...


----------------------------------------------------------

Now,im just concern about the amount of Vram..
460 SLI would cost nothing and bring sumthin like 120 FPS in game such as BF bad company 2.
for less then 280$ for 2 cards.

----------------------------------------------------------------
470 would be the perfect match i think....
in SLI im afraid i dont know enough about Pc's to handle them
...
But the vram (video memory) would be more then enough...
-------------------------------------------------------------------
560 ti in SLI was my BEST and mostly what i was going for..
they run cooler then 4** serie...
Are clock really high!!!!
memory is fast too...
but only 1 GB....
----------------------------------------------------------------

now my only concern are the temperature and the video memory for future games.

I'm sorry but I'm not gonna read that whole thing, I'm pretty familiar with the general performance levels of the 560ti and the 470. They would be pretty equal in terms of performance, but you'd be trading extra VRAM and a hundred dollars just for less noise and heat. That's not a trade that I'd be interested in making but if you are then I don't think it would be a terrible choice, I just think that 470 would be much better, and also that SLI 460 would be a better choice than 560ti SLI.

should i trust the RECERTIFIED version of EVGA??
this means they are used right??
and that i wont have no lifetime warranty,but i think its at least 3 years guaranteed...in 3 years....computers will walk and talk lol...so this doesnt really bother me.

So ill go for the 470.

they are at 184$
ill look up for more deals..
but everywhere i look up to,they are still around the 300$ range.
damn crooks lol.
