Changing GPU

Hi all need some advice. First off I have a XFX HD Radeon 5870 1g card in my rig now. I am having small issues with it as alot of people are.
Here is my question : I received an email from Newegg and they have a combo deal for 2 PNY GTX 460's for 389.99 after rebate. Would I be better off getting these 2 cards or just spend the same amount for 1 GTX 480?

This is my Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128416R

I know that the PCI for SLI will drop to 8/8. I just need some advice please.

    Hmm... Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that AMD 790x chipset does not support SLI, only crossfire. If it's true the only choice for you can be a single 480 instead of SLI.
