Good point.

Your 700w PSU will do fine ti 460SLI, these are not GTX480 .

This card will cost even less than the one you link first (free shipping + 2 X 30$ MIR), and also make wayyyyyyy less noise....I hate those blower sooo much...they sounds like your gf is using the hairdryer under ur desk (hummm.....)

Always the GTX 560 too if you want to go 5xx generation. About ~$30 more of course for each card.

Two GTX 460 over two 550 Ti. You can run them just fine, and you should outperform a GTX 580 if scaling and games work well.

Yep 460 all the way, 550ti and 560 are not there in the price/performance currently. I like the Asus 460 and it's available for $135 FS AR (this page says $5 less though so maybe ask about that and shoot for $130), but the MSI Hawk is a good option as well. I prefer the Asus because it has VRM heatsinks but they are both good cards.

The hawk has more power phases [i think?] and they are cooled completely sufficiently by the incidental airflow as a result of those two huge fans.

This isn't exactly sufficient.net though now is it?

You are right though, I don't think that the Hawk would be a bad choice but I have seen more than a few 460s be held back in thier OC by overheating VRMs. The Hawk's VRMs are cooled sufficiently for it's stock settings but I personally wouldn't push it to it's max volts and OC that it's core cooling could handle and expect it to hold up long term without some VRM heatsinks. Oh and FYI the Asus has a 5+1 power phase design (with heatsinks), the Hawk is a 6+1, and reference is 3+1.

GTX 550 ti uses basically the same GPU as the GTS 450,
while the GTX 460 uses basically the same GPU as the GTX 560.

so it's quite simple,
GTX 550 ti = 24 ROPs/32TMUs/192 cuda cores/192 bit memory bus
GTX 460 1GB = 32 ROPs/56TMUs/336 cuda cores/256 bit memory bus

obviously you need to consider that the 550 ti is clocked higher,
but anyway, they are both based on the same architecture, so it's quite obvious that the GTX 460 is a much better card,

The 560ti can OC about ~50Mhz higher generally and is about 10% faster clock for clock, for a similar but slightly higher (IIRC) power draw. They are basically pretty similar, the 560ti is an okay deal at about $220 in light of 460s at $135 IMO.

+rep!
I basically am looking for card to hold me over until Keplar. I'll probably go for a 460, but if the right deal comes along on a 560Ti, then I will pull the trigger that way.
