Need something to replace my GTX 460 1GB x 2 (SLI) with something else.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I need a new GPU; my other card on SLI is my friends and he wants it back soon, so i need a good GPU that allows me to run dual screen with no latency or low FPS.

Any suggestions?

Budget. We need to know a budget. Personally, gtx 460's overclocked so well for me that I didn't feel a true upgrade until the mature drivers of the 6970s were released and I promptly sold my 460s for the 6970s. That said a 7950 is the minimum I'd go, as 460's sli with heavy oc (850mhz+) can easily overtake a 580. 7970 preferred for you.

Too bad your friend needs it back. It's hard to beat SLI GTX 460 when it comes to cost/performance.

Your best logical upgrade would be to purchase another used GTX 460 for $100-$130 and go SLI again.

Otherwise you'll really need to spend some $$$ if doing a single card upgrade, because it just wouldn't be worthwhile to upgrade to less than a GTX 570, or HD 6950, or HD 7800 when available. Maybe you can sell him yours to offset?

The only single card that will be noticeable faster than your SLI configuration will be the HD 7970.

2x GTX460's are faster than a GTX560, going to that would be a downgrade for him, even a GTX580 wouldn't be much faster than what he's got.

What he had,he no longer has it.Untill the OP gives a price range the question is moot.

Well my budget would be up to 400.

I do agree a SLI GTX 460 is good because i notice the significantly reduced FPS and things loading heavy on graphics.

So what would it be for me? I am more on nVidia though.

Sell your current GTX 460 + $400 budget = HD 7950/7970/ GTX 680

Or wait for this one to be back in stock:
