Video card sli vs single card

Hello, can some give me the recommendations what would be better between a single: AMD Radeon HD 6970 2GB GDDR5 3D Video or 2 x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M 1.5GB DDR5 VRAM Video (2 x NVIDIA GTX Video in SLI Mode)

  1. get the nvidia 460 in sli...you will not be dissapointed
  2. Which system will you be getting?
    Performance is actually pretty similar, the 6970 trailing by ~10%, but the 460M SLI would be either lap searing, or heavily throttled. So say goodbye to more than 45min of battery life.
  3. 6970 is better choice imo:
    you have more VRAM
    more future-proof
    stronger GPU
    no issues
    what're your full specs? resolution? 460 SLI is pointless, it performs very close to 6970, but has a lot of issues, they break very easily and consume damn a lot more power...

    You forgot that they are mobile cards.
    460M is full GF106 (GTS450) @ 675Mhz, while 6970M is 960SP Barts (HD6950) @ 680Mhz.
  5. oh... lol
