lame...
sell them both for a single GTX 660, you'd be better off, the GTX 660 is only $200.
if this is about gaming... then the GTX 660 duels with the GTX 580 which is slightly less in power to SLi 460's.
therefore the GTX 660 will duel with SLi 460's and adds 2GB of VRAM, less power consumption. Surround, so on.
and every driver release the performance jump for the 6 series over the 4 series widens.

cheers.

This. It's much cheaper and you don't have to bother selling your current card.

I went from a dead HD7870 to GTX 660 in SLI and man i love it, i think it's more power efficient than AMD and now you have CUDA & Psysx or something. A few apps that i use; Mirillis Action and Xilisoft Videoconverter only uses CUDA and not AMD APP frown.gif Or, at least badly optimized.

My MSI Twin Frozr 660 OC have idle temps of 25-30° and with Furmark it goes up to 70°

Some results
