Putting together my new computer.. the last thing i have to choose is my video card set up.

Im looking for input on (2) 260's v (1) 470

The cpu im building is

i7 930
evga x58 board
6 gb memory ddr3 tri

computer will be used for gaming 99.9% of the time.

I realize the biggest benefit of the 470 will be dx11 support, but im looking more at overall proformance here.

Thank you in advance for your input

depends on your time frame, if you plan to build ASAP then go with the 260's, if you can wait I would get the 470 since supply is going to be an issue once these cards are released.

Personally, I would just go with ATI. Look at Nvidia's next cycle of cards.

Supply could be a issue, but will be managable.

but will a single 470 be better than the 260's in sli?

on the charts listed here 2 260's are better than 1 285 on most of the charts, but since the 470 data is limited im having to make a choice based a little more on faith and opinion than data.

you would be hard pressed for me to buy a ATI card ever... :)
