I'm building a new mid range gamin rig and was all set to throw my money down on an MSI Twin Frozr III (1280 MB), and SLI it down the road when it was needed. However, after doing some research it appears that a few games out currently are able to reach this VRAM cap which would start to cause performance issues.
I have an old GTX 460 that I could throw into my new setup, and I could purchase another one for SLI for the performance boost. I know this doesn't increase my VRAM to 2 GB, but I wanted to get your guy's opinions. I've always had fantastic luck with Nvidia and was looking to stay with them. Is it time to go ATI?
Do you think it makes sense to SLI 460s now, and if new Nvidia models pop up to 2 GB, go with them? I'll probably be playing BF3/MW3 initially and will definitely be playing MMOs (GW2, SWTOR, etc...) I know there is a 2 GB EVGA GTX 570 out, but it runs at about $400 whereas the GTX would be less than half the cost.
