Default Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 460 2Win

this card is basically a direct x 11 version of the gtx 295. Instead of two gtx 260's, it's two gtx 460's. As long as it's cheaper than the 580, it will be a hit for the budget gamer looking for performance. Nvidia should have made this a reference card for all vendors unless that happens to be the case. Because not everyone will be buying the expensive and exclusive gtx 590 because of it's price, especially in quad sli. But two 2 win cards in quad sli should be affordable. I wonder if you can assign one of the gpu's as physx for those games? Kinda pointless but another selling point for those that don't have card space for a dedicated physx card. I was thinking of how evga comboed a gts 250 with a gtx 275 for a physx/vid card back when. The ram at 1gb per gpu, budget gaming again. Probably would have been over cost of a gtx 580 to do more than that. and the 560 only has 1gb. It's only the two high end models that go over the 1gb limit in the 470/480 and 570/580. What I am getting at is you guys probably have lots of cash where evga and other vendors have to accomodate to all consumers. Burnt Ram, you have what is technically the 460 2 win seperated into 2 cards. I am assuming you are upgrading based on your comments?
