    Well, two GTX 465s would be an improvement over your Tri-SLI GTS 250s setup in terms of performance (also DX11 support instead of DX10) and perhaps in terms of power consumption too. If your GTS 250s only have 512 MB videomemory per GFXcard, it will definitely be an improvement, since there's 1GB on those GTX 465s. Two GTX 465 in SLI mode overall would be faster than a single GTX 480, perhaps they will be as fast as a single GTX 580 (except in video-memory limited situations in games). 160 AUD for the performance of a GTX 580!

    Buy both. Now that I actually look at your specs you could sell the GTS250s at 60 a pop and be even and get an upgrade out of it. Go for it.

    I voted "good cheap buy" only because you are stating they would sell at $80.
    I have one in my upstairs system(un-lockable GALAXY GeForce GTX 465) and it does fine.
    However, I (personally) would save my money for something newer if they wanted anything over 80 dollars used or 100 dollars new.
    Just my opinion.:)
