Looking to upgrade to GTX 460

Hi all. I am looking to upgrade to a gtx 460 superclocked. I currently have an Asus p5n-e sli with 2 8800 gt's in it. 750W Thermaltake toughpower psu, and Intel core 2 duo 3.0ghz.

I was wondering if this setup would work....I want to of course utilize the pcie 2.0 for the gtx 460. I am not looking to upgrade ram or cpu at the moment.

*not really looking for sli/crossfire, and would like to hover around the 300$ range.

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. good point
  2. A GTX 460 will be a roughly 20% upgrade from two 8800GT 512MB's in SLI. It won't be a huge difference and it might be more worth putting that money towards a completely new system (you can reuse case, DVD, HDD, PSU, for now).

    If you have a Microcenter, you can pick up an i5-2500K, P67 motherboard, and 4GB DDR3 for $350. It won't do much more than a 5% bump for graphics, but you'll have a system worthy of all the best new cards.

    Also, if you just want a graphics card, consider the $180 (After coupon & rebate) Radeon 5870 on Newegg right now. It blows all other graphics prices right now out of the water.
