8800 GT 512 Mb SLI vs GTX 460 760 Mb (upgrade)

How much more power or performance gain from 8800 GT 512 Mb in SLI to a GTX 460 768 MB?
I just bought GTX 460 768 Mb to replace my old 8800 GT 512 Mb in SLI to enable/ use DX11.
Is it a good buy? I'll probably SLI my new GTX 460 too.

    8800GT SLI vs. a single GTX 460 would give you around the same performance overall in most games. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/178?vs=156

    If you SLI two GTX460s then of course that would be nearly twice as fast.
  2. Right^
    Going from 2 8800GTs to 1 GTX 460 won't give you a huge boost in performance, adding another GTX 460 though will give you a noticeable performance increase
  3. Also, if you go the 460 route, I'd spend the bit extra and get the 1GB versions. Could mean the difference between highest settings and medium :)
  4. According to the benchmark that ElMoIsEvil provided the only big difference is the temperature.
    I gonna have to SLI my GTX 460 then.
    Thanks for the helpful replies.
