The GTX 460 requires 2 so you wouldn't be able to SLI without adapters. The 6850 on the other hand only requires 1 PCIe 6 pin connector so you would be able to CrossFire safely on that PSU.

good enough yes but wouldn't beable to overclock unless done without voltage tweaking biggrin.gif

it was, back on topic the 460 will do you well even in games like Crysis 2 and BF3 the XFX Power Supply will do nice aswell so you got good stuff picked out. Gigabyte is really good i had a Gigabyte Motherboard and it was flawless in the RMA department for me even the Rep was nice about it so all in all it was a good experience.

$144.99 after M.I.R may be a little overkill for your resolution but what if you decide to upgrade your monitor? Plus it's technically under your price range after rebate of course
