Few? Okay that's pretty ridiculous, it's around a 50 watt difference. Also yeah maybe the cooler is better, but truth is that reference 480 is warmer, louder, and consumes more power with about equal performance.

That being said, if you can find the good deals with 200-~240$ 480s, it might be worth it depending on what you're looking for, but may god be with you if you attempt to SLI those down the road.

In my opinion, your money would be spent best by holding onto your current card and waiting for Kepler to come around


EDIT: 650 watts will handle two 465s or a 570 just fine so there's no need to upgrade.

It's really the FPS per watt that's different between the series, not the raw watts.

The only good reason to go SLI is if you already have:
1) One of the two cards
2) Appropriate MoBo
3) Appropriate PSU

Absent these things or starting from no card, the best single card is the way to go. Sell the 465 and get the 570 in your scenario ... unless you already want to upgrade the board and PSU, since you already have the card ... because a pair of 465's in SLI will def. outperform a 570 ... although the max playable settings between the two setups is probably pretty dang comparable

I would get the 570 now, and be on the lookout for a new board. It's almost a shame to have a 2500k on a board like that ;( Decent boards are around $130 on sale, so I dont see any reason to not upgrade in a few months.

but thanks guys i think ill go with the 570 for now and sell the 465 to one of my friends looking to build lol

570 is pretty strong at 1080. I have no complaints playing Metro or Crysis on mine. Eventually I'll get the itch to SLI but that will be down the line.

I would track down the psu calculator on this site - most people (including me) are running way more psu than they need.
According to slizone.com a Kingwin ABT-650ma1s 650w will run two gtx460

So another option would be to offload the 465 and run sli'ed 460's.

Also, I saw someoene on this website say they 'unlocked' their 465 to a 470. That might be worth tracking down as an instant cash free upgrade.

Fixed

I've never considered SLI because my GPU budget usually doesn't allow it. However, a few weeks back I was able to pick up two BNIB 1GB GTX 460's for ~$123 after rebate. After I installed the drivers everything was taken care of and worked fine. The heat isn't really much of a problem either after I created a custom fan profile.

A little off topic, but sli only really works if you go with it quickly(ie add that second card in less than a year). I bought a gtx480 the day they became available and thought I could sli it down the road. My only sli option now is to buy used.
