MSI 460 GTX 768mb SLI vs MSI 670 PE Gaming

Hi I am thinking of reviving my old desktop and use it when I am on business trip. I have to travel quite a bit for work to a particular city and I am renting a service apartment there, so this computer would be for when I am there. I would say I spend 1/3 time there in a year. I will use it mostly for gaming and some low lv excel and power point work. I am thinking of pulling some of my RAM and GPU from my new computer and adding them to the old one.

Rig in question:

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R ver 2.0
Processor: i7-930 socket 1366 2.8Hz
RAM: Adata 2G X 3
HDD/SSD Seagate 1T X 3 raid 5 and 1X 128G SSD
Monitor: 2 X dell 23 inch
GPU: MIS 460 GTX 768mb in SLI
PSU Corsair HX850

USE:
Gaming – BF3, SCII, Crysis

Questions:
1. RAM and setting
Option 1. Keep current ADATA 2G X 3 ram running at triple channel?
Option 2. Pull 16G out of 32G from my current RIG, Corsair CML 16GX3M4A 1600C9 4G X 4 and put them in my RIG in question and run them either 4G X 3 triple ch or 4G X 4 double channel?

2. GPU and SLI
Currently have MSI GTX 460 768mb X 2 on SLI or Pull a MSI 670 GTX PE from my new rig?
Thank you in advance for the comments.

  1. GTX 460 768mb will cream a GTX 670.
  2. Keep the ram, 6GB is fine.
    If you intend to game a lot on that pc, put the 670 gtx, it's better than the two 460 gtx in sli.
  3. ^ Lol

    Anyway, what resolution do you plan to be playing on with this comp?

    I would assume you have both of these systems already... So... why not try to play your games as is on the system you plan to take w/ you?

    Your old computer is still decent and should play the games you listed just fine - as long as you turn AA down a bit and are not playing on 1440p+

    Okay so I guess you are telling me I should run both machines in SLI, since the 460 SLI running at 1920x1080 is enough to play the games I stated, I will keep the other in 670 SLI then, thanks.

    So I assume 6G ram is enough as well?
