  4. that motherboard doesn't support sli, might want to look into amd cards or find a sli supporting motherboard.

    gtx 460s scale really well, I feel it'd be kind of short sighted to not keep the option open.
  5. Hmm? if your speaking of My Bourd choice, im affraid your wrong it ddoues support sli, In-fact Its SLI ready.

    My bad, I was referring to the board from the bundle, your board is the one I'd link you for sli.
  7. looks fine to me, gtx 460 is a pretty solid card for your budget
  8. When are you planning on purchasing?

    you'll need a higher psu for sli too, this one is on sale


    after the mail in rebate and the promo it'll be 10 less then the sea sonic since it has free shipping.
  9. The MSI Geforce GTX 460 1GB sometimes gets close or slightly outperforms the Radeon HD 6850, AND FOR SURE the hd 5830, Id say more than solid ;)
  10. I dont Plan on SLI, 1 card is enough untill i can Upgrade the system witch i dont require for a Long time.
