Time to Upgrade?

I Currently have two Sparkle GTX 460's 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 in SLI in my system. They have been performing very well for me over the past couple years. I am seeking opinions on whether i should upgrade this year or overclock clock them because they will still perform fine or just leave them be. I just want to be able to handle the newest generation of games coming out at 1080p and 60FPS.

  1. We'll need complete specs before we can give any useful advice.
    In the meantime: If it ain't broke, do n't fix it ;) .
  2. I'd say even make sure they don't need to be cleaned out real good and then OC them and you should be fine.

    If you are satisfied with the performance you are getting there is no need to upgrade just yet.

  4. You are still really solid and I would stick with what you have as long as it runs what you want the way you want.
  5. I suspect the current cards suffer a fair performance hit with AA enabled. If this is something you can't live with then, and only then, might you want an upgrade.
    Be warned, though, it will be expensive, to get any useful performance improvements you'll be looking at the 660Ti/HD7950 as a replacement.
    Overclocking the graphic cards will certainly help-and it's free.
    Oh yes, one last point, that i5 of yours is really, really, screaming out to be pushed harder ;) . Go on, get the overclocking whip out on that lazy slug as well!
