Probably, and if your 1kw PSU is not able to run 2 460's then it really is a load of pants! :lol:

There are a few who say that you can run a hack to make Sli run on such a board, but as I've not tried it I can neither confirm or deny whether it works or not.

you can up-grade your mobo to a 990FX AM3+ and run SLI but it will cost you $200 more to do so. Just a thought. Your current CPU will work in the new socket! RAMs good too
