2 GTX 460 vs 1 GTX 570 SLI cards


Jun 14, 2011
I'm about to do a system rebuild (though alot of new components). It will be for gaming but will probably drift into the realm of unity/3DMax/Blender. My question would be between two differing sets of graphics cards single great card verse two cheaper SLI cards, both around $350.

(2x)EVGA 01G-P3-1372-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked



(1) EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570


I'm leaning towards the second of the two because I may buy a second one much later down the road when prices have come down(maybe 6 months to a year). But if I can get a substantial boost from the two 460's now I may go with that

Rest of specs

CPU: intel i7 2600K
MB: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265

(sorry bout not looking all specs up, but you get the idea)

Any opinions/facts/benchmarks would be greatly appreciated
