I would say go for 460 sli as 570's are known to crash and burn when overclocked so I would go for 460 sli.

Obvious cons of a 460 sli is it's louder and there's 2 cards.
LOL. You seem very informed on the topic. Please inform me as to what aspect of the overclocking causes them to crash and burn?

Could it be removing the overcurrent protection? Or maybe unlocking the BIOS to allow for 1.2v?

Before you post troll comments like that read into the issue.

I'm loving my ASUS GTX 570. I'd suggest going for the 570 and getting another one later on.

Its only when you go over 1.1V and turn off the power regulation deal.

Otherwise, if you're the kind of geek who always wants to mess around with the new toys, like me then 570 hands down. At least that's what I would do but for confirmation, I do believe 460s SLI are on par or even stronger than 1 GTX 580 and they also scale amazingly well in SLI. And all of them, 460s, 570, 580 are excellent overclockers.
OP, check this link for your reference: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/...s_460_1gb_sli/

570s are fantastic, but do not expect to punish these cards and get away with it. Do not disable OCP OR go over 1.1v and you should be ok.

Just adding, EVGA has refurbished SUPERCLOCKED 460's with a 90 day warranty for $130 each. I would rather go with an amazing single card but for around the price of a GTX 560 ($260), you can SLI 2 GTX 460's and get amazing performance, however you will have to consider upgrading much earlier than with a 570 or so.

You can punish the crap out of GTX 460 hawks

The 460 SLI is a beast. Great performance, but it is going to have higher power consumption than a single GTX 570. Heat is subjective, or debatable depending on the set up. If you put the two cards side by side, there is going to be a greater build up of heat. If you have enough space to put a gap between the two cards, then you are going to find that the temperatures are going to be decent.

If you go with the 570 now, you will be able to add another 570 in a year or two and have increased performance. If you go with the 460s now, you will have to replace both cards in a year or two.

I have a GTX 460 now, and I am considering selling it to get myself a a GTX 570 now. Just because its a brand new system, and I'm ready to go big with the build from the get go.

This thread has made me think.

The other thing you want to think of is: What resolution monitor you are going to game in... I have to find the review when I get home, but at lower resolutions (like 1080p the gap between the 460 SLI and the GTX 580 was pretty significant)

I'll post a link asap.

GTX 460 SLI will be faster than a single GTX 570, and even slightly better than a single GTX 580 in terms of average frame rate. Micro stuttering is not very noticebale these days thanks to driver improvements. Despite the GTX 460's being in SLI mode, they'll show BETTER thermal perfomance, but will consume more power.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforc...-sli-review/17
http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-570-review/9

It's 77D VS 73D.

In addition, GTX 460 SLI will be quieter than a single GTX 570 (you can watch the noise levels at both reviews).

So, the two advantages of the GTX 570 over a pair of GTX460's are power consumption, and the future proofing. When looking at other aspects, the GTX 460 SLI wins hands down.

also, i have never overclocked before but i plan on reading into it a lot more and overclocking my cpu, and gpu.
OP you should fill out your system specs http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem .

The NH-D14 is a CPU cooler and has nothing to do with GPU temps. The HAF X should have plenty of airflow to help out the GPU temps.

What motherboard you have will play a large role in SLI temps. I have one of the worst for SLI and one of the best. On my P6X58D-E the slots are terribly close together and present a challenge to running SLI. A few minor adjustments though and it wasn't too big of a problem. Except that all of my PCI slots are blocked with the second card in. Then on the other hand my P55 board is about as ideal for SLI as it gets in my opinion. No messing about at all just slap them in and go + I didn't loose my PCI sound card with it.

OK now I have to say I love my 460's. I wanted moar graphics power and I wanted it now and boy do these babies ever fill that need. Since I already had one 460 laying around picking up a second one was a cheap upgrade for me that made a huge difference.

That said I can't see going dual cards right out of the box with maybe a few exceptions. I really do think it is just a better route to buy the single most powerfull card you can. Then down the road pick up a second one.
