Should I upgrade my GeForce GTX 460 SLI setup to a single, faster GPU on my 1080p setup?

Question by Woody from Israel | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Posted: Sep 17, 2012 @ 21:18 CDT

Should I upgrade my GTX 460 SLI (1GB each) cards to a newer gen card?

I overclock both cards constantly to 100MHz higher than stock to gain a bit more performance in newer games. I'd obviously like better performance! But I haven't seen any benching of my cards versus newer ones. That's to be expected, and I can compare to 560s or something anyway. But I don't have a definite idea of what's best to choose.

I run a 1080p monitor, and have an i7 920 @ 2.67GHz.

Any help would be great!

I just have a little query here , supposing i had the option to buy either an Alienware M17x R4 (NVIDIA GT 680), or make my own desktop with similar GPU, which option will be more beneficial ( keeping the electricity consumption in mind ) ? and, assuming that i use the Laptop as a CPU only (using external FullHD projectors, audio systems etc ) .
