The downside to SLi 480 is power consumption and heat output.

As long as you can tackle those 2 issues, the best upgrade would be 480 SLi.

The later iterations of the 480's had WAY less heat issues then the first runs of it... 65-70 degrees is an amazing temp for a 480... Also, if you are planning to only game on one monitor two 480s should be more then enough for 99% of games... You may not get to use SSAA in the newest titles, but that stuff is over rated anyways.

I've yet to resell my 480's... Maybe i should list then on the classifieds. Only used them for 2 months before getting my 670's.

So far I have run resident evil 6 and grid 2 with everything at max settings and runs very smooth! I have the 320.18 WHQL drivers.
Now my biggest question is if my OCZ Fatality 750w would hold a test of 3DMark11, engine heaven, etc...?
Temps are fine man. 56 is nothing for those cards.

You are really pushing that psu. I would suggest not to overclock those cards.

Here is what a pair of H20 cooled with bios mod can do

BTW all videos drop about 5-8 FPS while recording with afterburner

BF3 @ 1080p. I usually play at 1200p, but did all these video at 1080

Crysis 3 @ stock clocks

Crysis 3 overclocked
