For a gaming only setup the only reason to go to 2011 is for the extra PCIE lanes and the ability to go to hex core cpus (that don't give that much of a gain).

Here is a gtx 670 2 and 3 way review if you haven't already found it.

I've gathered that the x79 chipset provides more PCIe lanes, and that GPU scaling gets worse for each card. What i have seen however, is that the 670 scales quite well.

Looking at Asus.com i see that the 1155 card provides x8/x16/x8 in 3-way SLI, and the 2011 card provides x16/x8/x16. Will this make a big difference? A HUGE one? None at all? I don't really get this part!
