About 560 SLI, vs 580, it is generally suggest that you go with the fastest single card solution you can get, then by a second whenever you need more performance. The reason is because if you get two slower cads now, when you need to upgrade, you have to sell your old ones. With a single card you can just buy a second. Really it is just about being able to upgrade later on, for cheaper.
Depending on shipping costs that might be good but the 2 I was lookin at are for $605 total, likely that'll save me money with shipping costs though so thanks :)
With the 580 I've found it's $95 more than the 570.
Ahh ok good to know about the SLI vs single (my tech is always behind the times so selling was never really an option before).
