Post Upgrade questions

Hey its me you know I cant ever stop upgrading,

Okay on OCN I get another EVGA 480 for $285 shipped, I can also get another 480 for only $270 shipped idk yet what brand, I can also get the OCZ1000PXS non-modular power supply for only $65 shipped,

my question is should I just go for the 460 2 win? or get that psu and the other 480?
Do you think the 4602win and or sli 480's are better than the 590?

Thanks JWing

Wow. No way to answer that since the GTX 590 isn't out yet. I would say that the 2win is a sure-fire win though. However, it won't outperform a pair of GTX 480's.

Also, I avoid OCZ PSU's like the plague. If you're going for a good one, get a good 850-1000 watt Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, XFX, etc. PSU. OCZ is crap. Don't skimp on your most instrumental component.

I think speed wise it will look like this:

SLI 480's > 590 > 460 2 Win

If you already have one 480, you'd be better off buying a second on the cheap. You'll save money and have a faster system as well.

I'd be a fan of going with SLI'd 480s.
