Thanks mate, but the nitro model of the 460 is about $530 while the cheapest 470 I've could found was about $1000. I just can't spend that much money. And also, the 380 is about $750, and I just don't have that much.

I don't think it's a very good idea..AMD will leave GCN Soon and driver support will get hard to come by, especially for CF Scaling..
