They may never release a video card fast enough for me, but that's my problem.
Even with dual ati 5970's I wanted more power. And still do. Probably get dual ati 6970's or tri gtx580's next round.
So as you can see, don't mind me. I'm not sane when it comes to this stuff... Lol.
I understand where you're coming from but unless someone is gaming at 2560 resolutions, SLI 460's can run just about any game at max or near max settings and that's really all most of us want.
I can understand holding off on the 460's if there were some hot new games coming up that were promsing to absolutely crush current graphics hardware (like how crysis collectively raped systems world wide) but I just don't see anything like that on the horizon. Rage and Crysis 2 are about the only 2 demanding games I see coming and I actually doubt (but don't quote me on this) that they'll be worse than metro currently is on our hardware.
I'd say that a very small percentage of the gaming community is in as demanding a mindset as you are and the performance a pair of 460's dish out will deliver enough power for most gamers.
As for me, I'm trying to decide if a 470 right now is worth the extra $75 vs a 1gb 460.
