Title says it all.

Should I go with 2 or 1? The 480 costs $500 and 2 460s cost $480

Would going with the 2 460s put strain on the processor (I plan on getting an AMD Phenom II X6), and result in a decreased performance?

Thanks ahead of time!

2 GTX 460 outperform 1 480. However, with AMD, you're stuck with a generation older hardware in the nvidia 980a if you want SLI

2xgtx460 is stronger than a single gtx480 but there goes all of your pciex16 slots if you have only 2.
I say get a single and add another one later. you will then have 2xgtx480 :D
