    Really need to know budget and resolution. And forget about 2GB VRAM cards, waste of money.

    I'd go for a 6870 myself. Great card and good price.

    I just got a 6870 for my new build and its a great card for the money, runs cool and has a fairly decent power consumption and the performance is likewise. I say look at reviews for both 6850, 6870 and the 460. :D

    I would get a GTX460, and if you want to continue SLI, get two GTX460s.
