That's exactly what I was gonna get.

I'm gonna get the 1GB version for 5 dollars more. Lol

But sadly, just to get the right parts so the SLI will work well leads me to around 600 dollars. D:

SLI Support mobo, plus 750W PSU equals another 100. D:

Already did, this is IMO the best 460 available and one of the cheapest, it's just about the only 460 I'd buy. When it's that cheap I see no reason to buy a different 460.

If your mobo doesn't support sli, and your psu won't pass muster, you'd prolly be better off with a single card solution... In that case, I'd go with an ATI card. I'm not sure about what kind of deals you can find on those, but just ask around.

Actually, I don't want to sacrifice the extra performance. So I'll wait until Black Friday for some good deals on mobos. It's the mobo that really took the extra money. The 750w psu is the same price as my previous one.

Which card should I get for all of those?


I'm not going to be running at 1080p. o which card is best for those games and at running around 720p? Sorry if I'm asking too much. But this stuff is critical as I need the best bang for my buck.
Most of those are/will be pretty tessellation heavy.
Pck up the 460SLI.

I used a 700watt Rosewill for 3 years running 2 8800gts'. 750 should be plenty of power for 2 460's. Some of the games you'll be amazed on.... Crysis and Metro come to mind. Others you may not notice much of a difference on. I couldn't tell on blackops between the 8800's and the 560's. 60fps is 60fps! SLI is extremely easy to set up, and imho well worth the little bit of extra $.

6950. No micro-stuttering you will suffer from SLI/CF, and will max everything with ease on your resolution...

Also, that PSU of yours will be enough...
