gtx 460 sli = awesome!!!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
man look at those gpu numbers, cpu does need a bit of work though!

for those who do not know what the gpu numbers mean, well for comparison a stock gtx 580 will get you a gpu score of ~26k points.

yeah deff go for another 460. at first I was totally single gpu and wanted to keep it that way, but with sli I actually don't get any micro stutter, or have problems with the dual gpu config. only problem is games that are incompatible with sli can't utilize it.

yes sli 460 are beast, only problem I had running dual GPU was FPS dips down sometimes and when there's not much going on it just sky rockets, i guess it's not too consistent

I ran a GTX460 SLI combo. It was nice.

I think this is the best bang for the buck combo going. Actually the 768 versions are.

However, don't under estimate the value of one strong card.

I can't wait to run my SLI GTX 470's. Still waiting on the SLI bridge. But I'm glad you like your 460's. Nice numbers you got there.

Is this the 1GB or 768MB version? I would guess 1GB but surprise me.
post #10 of 20
Thats a pretty sweet score. I cant wait to get mine still contemplating whether or not to get 2 768mb's or 2 1gb's.
