go for SLI 460s. it's better than a 480GTX.

if you get a 560,you're stuck with the same performance, and you'll still have to buy another for SLI.

get a 460, and you're set

460 owner here. I got a 1024 stock overclocked 460 about a year ago for a little over $200. still runs fine and pretty damn well too. I get about 60-70 fps high settings on BF3 on a 1920x1080 and can get about 30 fps on Crysis high settings so I can imagine 2 will no doubt be able to handle heavy loads. Only problem is at full fan its noisy as all hell. it sounds like a jet taking off. and even at full fan, its pushing 90 C! I have to underclock at certain times because im afraid the tower will just melt

As stated he Doesn't want AMD graphics

They still have driver issues.

If it were me and ive had a 460,470,560ti

The 560ti blew the 460 away and 2 of them in sli beats a 580

im also not talking about the 448 ones

a norm 560 is roughly on par with a 460.

Imo id go with the 560 you picked or buy a 570 off here in the marketplace.

Damn it why's there have to be so many choice's! I might just save the money and buy a pair of 460's off of ebay for under $200 and overclock the piss out of them or see what these 6 series cards are all about, When are they coming out?
post #76 of 141
600 series is already out for the super high end. GtX 670, 680, and 690. It is rumored that in the future there will be a 660, 660ti, and 670se. Specs on these are just speculation for the moment but there rumored release date is early august. I am sure this only frustrates more sorry.

Depends highly on resolution and level of AA, and even then we may see a card with less vram beating one with more. If OP is on 1920x1080, then 1gb vram is sufficient. If 2560x1600 or multi-monitor, then consider a card with more vram. But even then, read reviews and see how it compares to other cards.

Perhaps you could help me find some reviews on this card I can't seem to find any

Virtually the same in most instances, even at high res 2560x1600. Only metro 2033 at that high res does it make a noteworthy difference.
Yeah I think vram is more of a problem/necessity for radeon cards for whatever reason

Ya it will work and run fine, you loose 5%-10% in a x4 slot. So if you were running at an average of 50fps you would loose 2-5 frames with a x4 slot, so really not a big deal unless you are running something like a 680.
maybe you could jump in my other thread on this subject?http://www.overclock.net/t/1279225/can-i-run-3-graphics-cards-gigabyte-990xa-ud3/20#post_17658986
