I've got a dilemma. I have enough money to either upgrade my current monitor to a 1920 x 1080 res, or buy another graphics card for SLI and live with the 1440 x 900 that I have now. I have the following specs:
ASUS Z68 VPRO Motherboard
16GB Corsair DDR3 RAM
1 GTX 460 1 GB
TX750 W PSU
I want to play BF3 wide open, should I upgrade my monitor to 1920 x 1080 or get another GTX 460 for SLI and just roll with the current monitor that I have ( An LG that is 1440 x 900)? It's one or the other right now. Any help would be appreciated.
I would go for another GTX460 for SLI.
1920x1080 is great but with BF3 and only a single GTX460 your gonna have to play on medium settings.With a GTX460 SLI you will be able to play on Ultra settings and when you have enough money you can just upgrade to the 1080p.Your monitor is still 720p.Get the GTX460 asap.You will probably find it hard to get one soon.
Two 460s in SLI is massive overkill for 1440x900. I would probably take the monitor upgrade and plan to save up for another 460 in a few months. I think they will be pretty hard to find by the end of the year as nVidia and AMD are looking to have their new cards out early next year.
