New build, Video card questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am building the rig in my sig, have everything but CPU, PSU and video card(s) and my question is, with a budget of about $300 perhaps $400 if it's a pair of SLI cards or if it's one card that can do better than 2 ~$200 cards what would you suggest? I'm hoping to stick with Nvidia because I've heard that they do better for things like SETI@home or folding. What are your suggestions? Could I get away with a pair of 460 gtx's in SLI or should I look at something like a pair of 550/560 Ti's? I do game, currently only TF2 but I will be doing BFBC2 and most certainly the new batman game when it comes out.

550ti's are not worth a penny.

2x 560ti's are great bang for buck.

You get that free with a 560ti I think.

Personally, I would get a 570 and buy a second one when I was able to.

So perhaps one of these now, 560Ti which comes with batman and a free copy of 3dmark 11, and a second in the future when I can afford it?
