Unfortunately 460s only support 2x SLI (only one SLI bridge on a 460).

To be fair, if overclocked, the 1055t becomes a high-end CPU, performing as good or better than the top-of-the-line 1095t. And maybe that one GTX 460 will soon see another 460 next to it?

I dunno, but I like this build. Good luck/good job PJ.

Except that board doesn't support sli afaik. I'm not trying to be a downer I just think that you could save a couple hundred bucks and lose 0 performance, but it's your PC and you can do whatever you want

If I had the money to blow on an 800D I'd probably do the same thing because your build just ends up so damn sexy.

Oh, I thought HIS motherboard had SLI support. Should have looked closer.

thats because it has an nvidia chipset. If it was an amd chipset, no sli for you unless you use hacked drivers.

It's a lot easier to just get a motherboard that supports it. But then you are stuck with poor nvidia chipsets, unless you go with an intel chipset.

Listen to the lady, Pete. Even though she's a hater, she's giving you sound wisdom.
