Hello! and thank you for spending some time reading my thread :na: 
Well, i'm building a pc for a friend of mine and we already have pretty much everything we need for it...
Exept for the GPU's.
We DO know that we want 2GPUs that can make Crysis 2 kinda playable when it launches.
We can't decide wich ones.
I was thinking about the GTX 460's in SLI.
He was whinking about 2 5850's in Crossfire.

This two:

so... um.... :heink:  we can't make our mind on wich of these two would do the best combo.
The GTX 460's come pre overclocked to 850mhz on the core, and that i would say is the highest they would get.
The 5850's in the other hand are at 725mhz, with a custom cooler, and im sure they would overclock a little bit further.

Your opinions count! plz help!

Other specs:
Intel core i5 760
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (gotta love this bad boys)
Kingstone HYPERX T1 Series 1600 mhz
Cooler Master Silent Pro M700 PSU.
ASROCK p55 Extreme Motherboard.

Best solution

I would get two gtx 460 or wait for the 6000 series to come out if possible.

That link is outdated they did that article again with new drivers.
