Ok sounds good. Im wondering if i should also get some cooling installed and maybe something better than the stock heatsink? Because im not sure how cold 2 gtx 460s will be when OCed with an OCed cpu. Thanks!

make sure at least one of your 460s vents directly to the outside of the case. Otherwise the fan of your first 460 will blow hot air directly on the second 460, reducing performance.
