Newegg has a few choices for 90-100

your not gonna find paces selling it, also you mentioned a budget, also dx 100. first thing dx 11 can kiss my, open gl was doing tessellation long before DX 11 trust me your not missing any thing, second check the OCN market place and if you don't see one place a wanted ad, you'll get some PM with in the week, things generally go for cheaper on the OCN market place.

Save the money now later down the road when you have more money you can get a REALLY nice card. that what i'm doing, i i kept my 4850 from 2009 and bought a second 1 for 50 bucks and in the future i will get a 7850 or 8850.

as long as the GPU is the same it will work, but if one card has less memory than the other the lowest amount is what will be used.

You would be better with a more powerful card over 460 SLI, It is better to own one powerful card than 2 weaker cards, you will have less issues with drivers as not all games are supported by multi-GPU configurations, that means you could be left using one of the cards for unsupported games.

The amd 7950 is a good card to get, I think the never settle thing is still going
post #18 of 20
Like previously mentioned, a second 460 can be obtained for really cheap now. Personally I would do that or buy a 670 and sell your previous 460. Kingwin PSU huh, be careful with that
post #19 of 20
I SLI'd my 460 for the same reason you are considering it. It was cheap, and with the GTX 700 series on the horizon, I didn't want to cough up for a 670. At full specs Metro 2033 runs around 45 fps which I know isn't ideal, it is certainly playable and much better than the 12fps i was getting with just a single card. I have a Corsair 850W psu and have have no issues.

I would SLi. Half the cost of a new card for about the same performance.
