GTX 260 VS GTX 460 price benefits - Page 2

post #11 of 21
GTX 460 performs almost like the GTX 285 you have now. Don't expect a huge upgrade.

The biggest question is: Do you need DirectX 11? If you do, get the 460, or the 470 which should *hopefully* drop in price when the 560 comes out. If you don't, a 260 is more than respectable on its own, and if you can get two in SLI, why not?

Firstly, most games do not use dx11- even a massive pc releases like starcraft 2 is dx9 and most console ports are the same. Secondly look at performance per pound.

Just before mafia 2 came out I fancied upgrading my gtx275 but couldn't justify £330 for the gtx 480 so instead I paid under £100 and got a 2nd hand gtx 275 instead. The result is that yes, I have no dx11, but there is no game I can't pretty much max out and get great fps (except metro 2033)!

Sli is a great way to get excellent performance whilst not having to spend too much- you could get gtx 260 sli for about £130 for gods sake! Also it will open the door to nvidia 3d vision and surround if you wish
