I was thinking about getting two 460s after reading one sites reviews. this is good information for me because I have a 5970.

The 460s are great value.

Thanks for taking the time to post these benchmarks.
You know, you really misinterpreted my response if you believe that I was complaining.

I really don't think there's any value in comparing 2 sli'd cards when they're target market is tiers below the other card.

For example... you don't see any reviews pitting sli 460's directly against crossfire'd 5870's.... different tiers

UNLESS nvidia decides to build a dual-gpu fermi card out of these 460's.... in which case it's going to be pretty darn underpowered. A dual-gpu card really needs to be built out of 470 GF100 cores.... which probably won't happen since they're extremely ineffecient compared to 460 cores.

They had a hell of a winner with teh 460 but its primary competition is a 5830, a very weak card in comparison to the 5870 cores used in a 5970
