Hey guys,

I have a GTX460 1Gb now, what would be best an extra GTX460 or sell the first one and go for something bigger?

Sell that card and get either 6950, 6970, or a GTX 580.

The extra vram of these cards will help with that high resolution.

... or you could get another 460 1GB and SLI, but it's true a 580GTX or a 6970 will perform better.

Just get a used 480, it's only slightly less performance for about half the price of a 580.
Other than that 2gb ATI cards are your other choices.

Thanks for the replies, the idea with GTX460SLI was my first one. I have concidered maybe GTX580 and just go full out on Nvidia - I play GTA IV and my old ATI had big problems with this title, is this fixed ?

it might but by a small margin. If i remember correctly sli 460's at that resolution were 13% better than a 480 so that should make it 7% less than a 580
cost wise a second 460 is more logical since you can get 1 for 150-180 ish
as opposed to selling your 460 $150 and buying a $500 card
If you have the $$$ then go for a 580 if you want to save money then get a second 460

GTA runs like crap on most set ups because it's CPU intensive. I doubt you will get any better performance no matter what GPU you have with that title.

I have tested with an 8800GT, 9800GX2 and a 5770 - and GTA IV ran better on the nvidia cards then on the ATI .
