A while back i got an asus engtx 460 768mb because I was building a budget gaming system and it has been working great but now i have some more money and am going to get a surround set up and am wondering if the adding another gtx 460 768mb would even work well in surround considering it only has 768mb of ram. Would i be better off going with an Ati card with eyefinity and 1 or 2 gb of ram?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Also if I get another gtx 460 i will need to upgrade my power supply and could use some suggestions.
Any thing but Palit or Galaxy, personally just go for another Asus and don't look back. 1600x900 isn't all that much but I will my self be gaming on that next semester. Another 768mb Asus gtx 460 as you don't want to waste your money on a 1gb or 2gb when only 768mb will be made use of if in sli with your existing card.
GTX 460 1gb + 8800gt for physx
SLI however has a lot of overhead just like crossfire.
You may as well just get another 460 and go SLI. You will be able to use 3 monitors, but it's going to be pretty taxing on your system. The games you can run on three monitors will probably require you to lower the detail to get a playable FPS, well some more than others of course. Of course for more demanding games you can always just put it back to playing on one monitor ^_^
I did the math and found that three 1600*900 displays only has %5 more pixels than a 2560x1600 monitor which sli gtx 460 can still run pretty well. Is this a good way to tell if the cards will perform well?
