. Don't worry about that part.
What's your budget? Is SLI ok or single card?
Well I only have one 260, and yes it does mt ht apps fine, and doesn't overheat or have many problems that might come up running a card 24/7 for btter than 2 1/2 years, that's something I lok for in my cheapness lol, also something I would expect from any new card, I would hate to upgrade to find out I need to keep my computer turned off most the time just to save my gpu from killing itself.
With regards to the sli question, my budget accounts for less then does not going too overboard on a system I basically use to watch movies and play games on. 2 sli 560 would be in the 500$ range, a single card that may or may not perform as well as sli 560, but is in the 350 - 400 range is more then welcomed, and if you think I would be happy with twin 460s or even a single 560 / 570 feel free to speak up as well.
The best of the best doesn't concern me as much as the best bang for the least amount of cash does. Not that I can't afford to buy the bigger stuff, just that throwing 200$ extra a gpu just to get a couple more frames in warcraft isn't my priority, with an 18m old and another on the way lol. I wouldn't even be upgrading my system, if it wernt for the fact that this computer was all new tech when I bought it, and the system core is almost 3 years old if not more, and as long as it has lasted (in spite of or because of my underpowered psu, I'm not sure) it cant last much longer and I don't want to wait til she dies.
