there is no reason for using a 200$ 3 year old CPU in a review where the GPU setup costs 1500€ and the monitors are almost in the 1000$ range.

I know nothing about appropriate, but damn, that was funny. +rep.

Are sure there is not a CPU bottleneck here? I'm sure that I have read time and time again that inorder to avoid a CPU bottleneck in SLI the CPU has to be over 4.0Ghz. 3.6 tells me there has to be a bottleneck at play here.

Now, I would like to see this same review with the 3Gb 580s to determine if they match up better or does CFX's great scaling still prevail.
Nah 570s candle handle 5760x1080 with 8xAA.

Exactly

I mentioned that in my first post.

Someone with an H account should ask them why they do that.

This. AMD/ATI has always done this. Hell, that's why I opted for the 4770s back in the day rather than a trio of 9800GTX cards. the Nvidia side would have run me around $120 more for the same performance.

Granted, that's nothing by comparison to the cost of things here, but... you get the picture.

AMD holds best price/performance ratio. Nvidia has... uhm... what was that again?

Mind you all, I got my GTX 470 for $200 used so I'm not crying for more money.

BC2 isn't a VRAM "heavy" game. The only game that seems to suck memory dry is DA2 atm.
