Hi

I have a thread here:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/296051-28-tell-system...

I considering buying these parts today

In particular the graphics card

Right now I am kind of in rut on between choosing 2 cards to buy

I have 2 graphic cards in mind so far that I am planning on purchasing and I wish to do SLI for gaming. Types of games I want to play are counterstrike 1.5, counterstrike source, left for dead, battlefield bc 2 and other high res games.


First card I came across has some good reviews at newegg.com
Second card was recommended to me and has a good price at the moment

The second card was given to me as good suggestion by a forum member.

I Would like to have an honest opinion on which of these cards is the better choice for the needs I listed above or if there.

Any help is most appreciated in advance.

1) EVGA GeForce GTX 460 768MB (768-P3-1360-TR) nVidia GeForce GTX 460 Chipset (675Mhz) 768MB (3600Mhz) GDDR5 Dual Dual-Link DVI/Mini HDMI PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card COST: $210 - After discounts and rebates $119.00

Well its all about the money here, if you can afford it the 1gb card is MUCH better than the 768mb, and if you want it in sli this will also perform very well. The 1gb card should play everything you have put here at good fps on high setting. You also need to consider the 5850, or the 6870, as the prices have dropped dramaticly and are better alternatives :) 
hope I helped,
Cal.
