Hey its me you know I cant ever stop upgrading,

Okay on OCN I get another EVGA 480 for $285 shipped, I can also get another 480 for only $270 shipped idk yet what brand, I can also get the OCZ1000PXS non-modular power supply for only $65 shipped,

my question is should I just go for the 460 2 win? or get that psu and the other 480?
Do you think the 4602win and or sli 480's are better than the 590?

Thanks JWing

Wow. No way to answer that since the GTX 590 isn't out yet. I would say that the 2win is a sure-fire win though. However, it won't outperform a pair of GTX 480's.

Also, I avoid OCZ PSU's like the plague. If you're going for a good one, get a good 850-1000 watt Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, XFX, etc. PSU. OCZ is crap. Don't skimp on your most instrumental component.

I think speed wise it will look like this:

SLI 480's > 590 > 460 2 Win

If you already have one 480, you'd be better off buying a second on the cheap. You'll save money and have a faster system as well.

Are you looking to offload that psu? I think mine is dying and maybe I could buy it from you

I'd be a fan of going with SLI'd 480s.

I could have sold you a PC P&C Silencer 910 and a 480 for $360...total. :(

okay this is what the pc looks like with the new psu in it, my concern is its huge. on the bottom of the case their is space for dual 120mm fans, the psu is bigger than one of those fan spaces so like the fan on the bottom of the psu is bigger than the fan space in the case, is that going to be a problem for heat? Get what I mean?

Yes, although in some cases PCP&C PSUs are OCZ :(
