Default Upgrade Advice

I currently have a ASUS GTX460 768mb,

Should I get another for SLI or go with a GTX560 and use the 460 as the physx card.

Thanks,

K

You would get more overall performance from the second 460 for SLI. The only time the other scenario will be fast is if for some reason SLI isn't supported properly by the game by PhysX is, and I cannot imagine such a butt-backwards scenario happening or staying that way for long if it did.

Yes I would go with another GTX 460 768mb because they will be faster then just one GTX 560 tho it looks like the GTX 560 should be around 25 percent faster then the old GTX 460.
