So I'm trying to narrow down between getting either 2 460s or one 570 (and maybe SLI in the future). obviously the benifit of the first is better performance now but being locked in, as compared to a little less performance now but being better later. Here are the cards I'm torn between.. And advice is welcome.

Of course the other down side is that I'm looking at like a 40 buck price increase for less performance...

I'd offer a 3rd alternative, twin 560's @ $220 each which will give 862 fps in SLI compared to the the 570's 873 fps in Guru3D's game test suite. Put $110 aside that ya would pay for the 570 and get the 2nd 560 when another $110 comes along .... which will certainly be before ya save another $330 for a 2nd 570.

We need to know a lot more about your system before we can help you. Most importantly what is your resoltuion going to be?

Can you rebate on two of the same card per household with that particular rebate?

It should also be noted I've heard bad things about Galaxy's rebate's from friends and a few times on here.

I'm gonna be building the system in the next week or so. I've gotten most of what I want figured out. This is basically what I'll be working with.

Corsair Graphite Series 600T Black Steel
CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W
MSI P67A-GD55 (B3)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB
Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz
Noctua NH-D14
and what ever video card I decide on in this thread.

My monitor is an Asus VW246H, ao I think the max resolution is 1920x1080. That's not to say I won't replace it, but not any time soon.

Nice build. Personally at that resolution I'd rather have the 1.2GB of VRAM.

Also this combo is 550 dollars after rebate.

A pair of GTX560's do quite well at 19 x 10.

If I were to get a 2 gig 560 could I sli that with any other 560 or would it need to be the same exact 2 gig 560? I'm new to SLI.

So assuming I go with a 560... If I SLI at this point would I notice any actual in game difference from the 70 fps to the 140 fps jump I'd see? Would it even pay off at this point to get a 2nd card, or should I wait to get the 2nd once the games are more demanding and the price comes down. I don't mind getting it now assuming I'll actually see a difference.

The 2GB 560 is a bit of a one off and if it were able to be SLi'd with a 1GB model it would effectively lose a gig by doing so.

At 19 x 10 with Crysis 2 my rig went from 90fps to 120+fps but with some games you may see more and others may show less of a gain.

Right, but I guess the question is this... Are those actually noticeable frames??? At this point I'm torn between going 560SLI or 570, basically if I'll actually notice the difference I'll go for the SLI but if not I'll go single card and get the second when I will. My problem is more a real world effects than it is a benchmark stats.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna go the 570 route and SLI it once hte price drops a bit.. The extra RAM with out buying a card I may not be able to find in a few months is what I think sealed it for me.. Thanx all..

One quik question. 2x16 vs 2x8 for this card.. Any real difference?
