post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So should I keep my tri-fire or make the switch to SLI gtx 460s. Would it be worth it?

460s would kill your 4850s

EDIT: you probably know this but you cannot go tri sli with 460s.

Lol yea I'm gonna get the 1gb versions. alright seems unanimous that it would be a worthwhile upgrade.

Plan on overclocking them to 900mhz with voltage and dominating other gpu solutions lol

Don't bother! You have an awesome setup right there. Wait for GTX560 at least. They come out in January or February of next year.
