I would like to find a single Geforce card from the current generation that will exceed what my two cards can achieve in SLI. Preferably something under 500 dollars. At Best Buy last week I saw they had 1GB Geforce 460's for around $250 dollars. Would this be enough? Maybe something from the 500 series instead? Would I run into any problems going from two cards in SLI to one single card? Would the liquid cooling give me any problems?

Thanks guys.
