Get SLi 460's unless you plan on getting another 480 later on.

Thanks mark for the help. I ended up changing to a K62 case. I just finished placing my order, so I am very excited

I'm not a fan on SLI much, I read an article or two about two 460s being better than a 480 in most situations, but I am happy with my decision. Thanks for taking the time to help out though.

I will have to agree as well on the 1 card vs 2 cards, even when the sli setup is a bit cheaper the minimum fps is almost always lower than the single card solution. Average may be a bit better in some situations but the minimum is what matters.

Goodluck with the build by the way, make sure you OC that cpu and don't forget about using the 8800 for PhysX!

One of my favorite cases, but I'm one of the few who still remembers how nice the 902 was, otherwise the rest of this is great! Even that psi perfect for this build.

Watch out for the OCZ ram, there is a post on here saying that they are getting out of the ram business. Personally, I have bought the 1600 MHZ ram 2x2 and I can barely get it to run at advertised speeds. Here is the link http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...l-no-more.html
