Hey Guys

Well in my set up i have 2 GTX 460's and i am running 3 displays on a suround vision with a res of 5040 by 1050

Now, i am starting to think i have bought the wrong cards, because you cant tri SLI the 460 i have got 2 monitors on 1 gpu and 1 monitor the other, now obviously i am not going to get the greatest of FPS in games because the 460's are not the highest GPU's around anymore, but i wanted to see if you guys have OCed your 460's who ever has them and had good results OBV with water cooling.... because i am not sure if to spend the money on watercooling these bad boys and then overclocking them if i am not going to get the results i want........

For that resolution you're going to need a card/cards with more memory and higher memory bandwidth.

So if you're sticking with Nvidia then the best bet is the GTX580/570.

The 580 would probably be ok on its own.
