The SC means SuperClocked, and is effectively a very small overclock, the benchmarks will be very similar. The performance will be a few frames higher at best in some games, and the power consumption and heat will be a bit greater.

Just downgrade then to the SC 460GTX SLI they aren't as hot and scale well to a 480GTX If you really worry about heat and want the practically same performance (sort of) Just get Crossfire 5850.... I really don't understand SC and normal when you can easily OC way past the SC clocks, even with its heat.

He is right, the difference in frames is very minimal because the factory "overclocked" cards are barely even overclocked. The only real difference between the cards is the backplate... in which case you can deduct the temp difference.

2 x 460's would be ideal if the heat of the other cards would be unbearable for you.

In my mind the $30 price jump from a SuperClocked card to a reference card is most definitely not worth it considering you'd basically be paying $30 for a backplate.
