It will be faster but your CPU will bottleneck your performance if you go with 2 GTX 460's
PS the GTX 460 1GB can run pretty much any current game maxed out at 1920x1080 with no problem
no need for SLI, by the time you need the extra performance, there will be a new card that is similarly priced but much faster.
