Sacrificing a few extra fps to keep the Mrs. happy isn't such a bad trade!
I agree they trade blows with the 580, but usually win? No, look at the last bit of the 2nd page. "Highest playable settings." The 580 wins here by miles. According to the reviewer, the 580 delivers smoother framerates in general as well.

Also 2x 460 sli are not 20% more than a 570, specially on memory hungry games. they are indeed stronger but not 20%.

460 EE from evga has a different fan from ANY 570/580, and they are much much better than evga's 460 EE. So no problem there.
As for the card u can get a 570/580 or even a 480, if u can find one cheap (ur psu can handle 1 480).
Yeah I have all my settings to max in power management. I even custom profiled my Afterburner to hold the OC on 2D programs (it drops to 405mhz in any menu in DA2, and often it stays there... This happens in Fallout:NV as well.

I can't handle the horror stories about the 480 so I ruled that out. Happy to hear the fans are better on the EVGA's. But the charts I have read in gaming benchmarks show the 2x460 dominating single 570 pretty much every time (not GTA4?). Thanks for your input!

You do realize your Link shows that the GTX 580 maintains a HIGHER MINIMUM Framerate, right?

Heck that GTX 580 isn't even overclocked and it's standing toe-to-toe with the SLI 460's. Yeeeeaaaaah... I stand by my statement.

GTX 570 FTW!

Im building a system for a family member who would be buying one of the 460's or the 5770. So it's somewhat time dependent.

DA 2 is not working well with nvidia cards. A 580 cant handle vhigh settings. It just need a driver update thats all. DA2 problem will be solved, so dont worry about that. Untill its solved we dont know how sli will scale and how well 2x460s or 1 gtx4xx/gtx5xx will perform.

At 2560x1600, yes the 460s memory does hold them back, though that's not really applicable here. I was just demonstrating that even at extreme res the 460s keep pace. At 1080p 460s hold a larger lead.

The 460s aren't OC either...

+1 DA2 right now is not indicative of anything.
+1 on waiting a week for the 590 release that might change prices.

Is it *only* DA2 that you see problems with the 460s? If so once DA2 is fixed I'd want to keep running the 460s, give the 570 (that should be slower) to the wife. Then in 6 months once kepler is released and 570 prices fall then pick up a 2nd 570 and then give her the 460s :-p

You could sell one of the 460/5770 give ur wifey the other card and rock the 460 for a few weeks

This is totally normal and by design. I get this downclocking all the time with my rig when I play easy-to-run games like FONV or DS2.

It's not a 'sli problem' as a single card will do the same thing if you make the gfx load easy enough to run. It's just more likely to occur in SLI because you have double the gfx power. Does this downclocking ever cause you to dip to low FPS? Because it doesn't cause any actual problems for me whatsoever.

Screen tearing is also more likely to occur in SLI because the FPS is more likely to be in excess of 60fps.

Just putting in my $.02
