Also how many people use Physx and how many use eyefinity, more use Physx by far. I get it that at stock speeds the 6850 beats the 460 but once overclocking comes into it (and it should on this site!) the 460 comes out on top.

Can we get a 460 SLi review too please as it's cheaper than the 480 you recommend and kicks its ass in performance. I know some people will say it's more unreliable than a single card which will make the test results interesting to put this subject to bed. :)
EDIT: I'd hope that most people reading this site will be overclocking their GPU. The 460 1GB when overclocked keeps up with a 5870 for example which is much more expensive.

Going from experience even a GTX460 clocked to 925/1850/4300 cannot keep up with a stock clocked HD5870 is anything bar heavily Nvidia biased games or heaven. It keeps up with a mildly clocked HD5850 though.
