Default Re: GTX 460 SLI: The REAL deal

I don't need exact 8800GTX SLi performance- just there about. If it's give or take a mere hand full of frames per second I really wont care.

Both the 5850 and GTX460 (1GB) seem to offer this. And the GTX460 seems to be considerably cheaper. However, it does tend to run ever so slightly hotter, and consume more power especially while under load. Though both cards are really close and the GTX460 is considerably cheaper.

So torn.
