If your going to SLI why don't you get a 460 2Win, by EVGA, it's two GTX460's on internal SLI on the same mainboard, Like the 5970 or the GTX590. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=GTX460%202Win

How is the airflow on your case? The Gainward GLH looks nice but is a half external exhaust/ half internal exhaust. So good case airflow is a must.

Same can go for the EVGA. Which were you looking at? The one with the central fan or the blower fan on the end?

It really depends on which you're looking at. The external exhaust model will be loud but will keep most of the heat out of your case, where the centrally mounted fan model might be quieter and cooler but at the expense of rising case temps.

It's also more expensive than two single cards, not to mention it's hella long.

Can only have one.

460s can only be dual SLi'd. The SLi finger was left on there but it cannot link two 460 2Wins.

I have been a fan of gainward since my first card which was a 5900XT I was given. I always try for their golden sample models as they always seem to overclock nicely and have never had one fail on me. Never had an evga card to compare with though, but they are both quality card makers.
