You can sli both of them since they're both gtx 580s but if you sli a 3gb with 1.5gb the 3gb card will only have 1.5gb of vram usable. Well as far as I know, there isn't away around this but there MIGHT be a way, not sure though.

There is no way around it. There just isn't. That's how SLI works.

I run 3D Vision on a single GTX 580 and it works perfectly fine. You may have to turn down some settings on some of the more demanding games like Metro 2033. But it's worth it as thje "image quality" bump (or "graphical experience" bump, rather) from 3D Vision is a lot higher than what u get from some setting like ultra vs medium shadows, or DOF, or some such thing
