Default GPU upgrade help??

hi everyone. This is my first post to these forums. I'm looking to upgrade my machine with a new GPU. I currently have a gtx460 that has worked fine but struggles to max out games at 1920x1080. Since I'm planning to buy another GPU, should I simply buy another gtx460 and run it in SLI? or should I just replace the 460 outright with something better? Thanks guys!

Sli = better value.
Single = Less problems, energy, heat.

If it was me, I would get a single powerful card.

How big is your power supply and what make is it?

I would go with another GTX460 and SLI if your power supply can handle it.
