Default Upgrading 275 to 460's sli?

Howdy everyone

quick question, been wanting to upgrade my 275 for a while, the new 460's look nice, i know its not much of an upgrade gaming wise, but i do lots of Cuda work, and i think i might see a nice increase there with the 460.

Ive also seen that 2 gtx 460's in SLI can pump out really good performance for gaming as well(compered with 480)

what card would be good for SLI? am interrested in the MSI GTX 460 Hawk, but also like EVGA cards as well for there lifetime and past experience with my evga 275.

But, very few cards ive owned passed the 3-5 year mark anyways(retired usaly). witch is way am leaning towards the Hawk (for the OC and "quieter" cooling).

whats the general census about the 3year MSI vs lifetime on the EVGA(witch are also 20-30$ more)?

looking at the :

EVGA GeForce GTX 460 Fermi EE 675MHZ 1024MB 3.6GHZ

MSI GeForce GTX 460 Fermi Hawk OC 780MHZ 1GB GDDR5


this will be installed on a P7P55D-E Pro, I5 750 @3.8 ghz with the XFX 850 black psu
