I wonder if the review said no option just because it had only 1 set of pins.
Lol thats the wrong image on that page for the GTX 460. What you see there is actually a GTX 285 Classified. Note the three 6-pin power connectors on the card (as well as the fact that it says GTX 285 on the front). Dunno why Newegg screwed this one up.

EDIT: Looks like they switched it back to the correct image of the 460, with only 1 SLI connector per card.

According to Anandtech's review, two GTX 260s in SLI outperform a single GTX 480 and are very close to two HD 5870s in CrossFireX. I would assume that two GTX 260s would run cooler and draw less power than a single GTX 480? Am I wrong? Regardless, running two GTX 260s in SLI seems to be an awesome sweet-spot.

This little card is impressive massive O/C cabability and SLIing these 2 cards is a good option. Less heat power draw etc.

No-----tri-sli capable here, that might be the only reason the GTX465 will stay a current product otherwise no other compelling reason for a GTX465.

The 1gb version is the best bet, Sparkle has a 2GB version soon FYI.

not sure about two 260, but i can tell you that my single 480 runs cooler then a single 280.

Wink Re: Official NVIDIA GTX 460 Reviews Thread! (GF104 Fermi)

I want to play racing sims and FPS's with three 24" LCD's. Did any reviews come out with numbers that show what 460GTX SLI frame rates are when running triple monitors using Nvidia surround? I am dying to know how it compares to the 480GTX SLI.(http://pcper.com/article.php?aid=946) Wondering if the smaller 1GB on board memory would impact ultra high resolutions and limit this card in triple monitor setups? I mean if this card can perform at a high level for less then half the price of two GTX480ís, that would put triple screen gaming into the mainstream for sure
Nvidia is pushing the whole 3d thing hard but quite frankly not many people are going to shell out $370+ per120hz 3d monitors + Glasses + 2x video cards. I think Nvidia should put more marketing attention 2D triple monitor setups as games look and play amazing with that feature as its already better then ATI's Eye Infinity.
Any review links or personal feedback from people who have a couple of 460gtx 1GB cards is much appreciated as I am eager to see real world performance numbers.

So, is it safe to say that two GTX 460s in SLI are a better buy than one GTX 480?

If you have a motherboard that supports SLI and are willing to deal with the occasional headaches that come with multi-GPU setups in the SLI profile and driver department, a GTX 460 SLI setup does look better on price, power consumption, and performance. But the GTX 460 SLI setup is a finished system, unlike a single GTX 480, where you can go SLI and Tri-SLI in the future if you really wanted to.

What the hell is Nvidia doing? Are they trying to piss their customers off? It is obvious that this new 460 design is superior to the 470 or the 480 even. This is BS! They are going to revamp the 490's with this new technology and blow everything out of the water and I will be stuck with this big paper weight which is as good as my 8800GTX. Why the hell didn't they just wait till they perfected their design and launch then? This is crap and I can't be the only Nvidia fan that feels this way. I spent good money, that is not just laying around to spend on something that will be or is obsolete. It seems A$$ backwards that the 460 has inproved technology the the 480. I'm fedup.

That is the downfall of being an early adopter. You get screwed with the price, early revisions and driver problems. It's the price we pay for being enthusiasts.

So my 8800 ultra RMA arrives in 2 days, but after being without it for 4 weeks I am pretty much going to be forced to buy a new video card if I have to RMA it once more (another 2 weeks rma process). I can't plunk down anywhere near $600 that I did on the 8800, but I require a video card that is actually an upgrade from my 8800, and would actually feel like a significant performance boost from a high end 8800. Is the G460 all that?
