Adding second card to 3 year old Geforce GTX 460

Guys, how can I tell what cards are compatible with my current card so I can run in SLI mode? My motherboard is SLI capable, and I figured I would add another card. Sorry for newb question.

Thanks!

  1. Best answer
    any 460 should sli with your current 460
  2. if you can find 460 now so there isn't any problem . . 460 of any brand can fit and work fully
  3. any 460 should work, but my suggestion would be to get a new one with the same (or better) GPU/Memory speeds, especially if you have a factory overclocked model.
  4. guys, I can't find any 460 cards on Newegg. Are there others I can add for SLI?

    Thanks everyone for the help.
  5. Try kijiji/craigslist/or other local buy/sell/trade forum. If all else fails try ebay.

    The 460 has since been relaced in turn by the 560/660/760 - you probably will not be able to find a new in box 460 for a reasonable price - but there should be plenty of used ones around.
  6. Try Amazon. You might also be able to find used GTX 460 for really cheap (around 90$). An used card would be a great idea since you're SLI'ing two outdated cards.

    personaly i would try to get 50$ for that 460 you have and go get a GTX 760...you will get AT LEAST twice the performance you would get from a 460 sli...
  8. There were a few versions of the GTX 460, including a regular one, a SE version, and a version 2. Be sure to check the specs and get one that has the same # CUDA cores and same memory bandwidth as your current card. Here's the list:

    You can download and install GPU-Z to see which version you have.
