Default Re: Single GTX460 1GB worse than 8800GT 512MB SLI?

Old post, but I'll add to it with personal experience. High end video cards need a high end cpu. My wow performance didnt improve much when I went from a single 8800 to my 460, but thats because any situations were my fps dipped, it was a cpu issue.

Although I did get a big boost in my crysis frame rates. I really couldn't do x1050 on my 8800 Ultra at a playable frame rate (and to me, ~20 fps is a playable framerate), but my 460 does it quite well.

I know how ever that I won't see alot of my performance until I do a motherboard/cpu upgrade now.
