GTX 460 HAWK X2 SLI or GTX 480 Reference Galaxy?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just got 2 of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814127518R

$92 AC NEWCUSTOMER10 each ... OPENBOX

and the GTX 480 BRAND NEW

$175 AR ....

which is better for performance? I plan on selling the GTX 480 to make profit for the 2 gtx 460.

I can also do 3D Surround with the GTX 460 SLI ...

Help me decide...

You could get a second GTX 480?

Dual GTX 460s out preform a single GTX 480

But the Hawx GTX 460s are beast IMO. Never heard anything bad about them.

I'm on a budget honestly ... another 480 will rape the gtx 460 ofc but yeah I want a good price budget is at 175-200 so hah ;p

How much should I sell the gtx 480 for? It's brand new unopened

Performance? Well I don't know how good they were overclocked, but a gtx 460 sli is hot on the heels of a 5970! Overclocked it competes and beats the stock clocks gtx 470 sli.

480 BNIB? I think $200-225. You might wanna check eBay.
