Personally, I would have went with one very large monitor so that I could keep the settings high. Granted, I've never played on surround, so I might change my mind on that.

2 580s fit fine on a quality 850w, even overclocking everything. The higher PSUs are for 3-4 card setups, watercooling, server motherboards, 6+ Hard drives, ect. Now, 2 480s on a 850w might be cause for pause (I'm a poet and didn't even know it), but the 580s draw a lot less power than their predecessors, and the 600 series promises even less power draw (or significantly more oomph for the same power draw).

It's cheaper to get 3x U2311H's then it is to get 1x U2711H (cheapest monitor for 2560x1440)

as you sad 1 card cant run 3 monitors

so either you go SLI or you get the 2GB 560's which are pretty dam good xD

but why dont you just grab a GTX590 its price is pretty close top a 3GB 580 and its way stronger then a 580 or a 560's in sli...

Cheapest 590 in Australia is +$800AUD, and im not sure if that can run NV Surround as it is one card.

You can run nVidia Surround off of one GTX590. I wouldn't want to though. I've run Surround off 2x GTX580's and it performed well, but I wouldn't go lower than that. GTX590 clocks are 165Mhz lower than stock GTX580's.

I just read a [H] review that had the 590 vs the 580 SLI, and the SLI setup had it in the bag!

Im going to a Computer fare this Sunday, and i guess i will have to let the reduced prices do the talking for me, ill leave my GPU purchasing till last to see how much Dough i have left!!!

^ ofcorse lol

but 580's in sli cost about 1000-1200$ wehn 1000 is for stock ones and 1200 for 3GB's ones

and 1 GTX590 only cost 700$ which is much cheaper

in the price of 2 GTX580 3GB you can almost buy 2 590's that will be way... faster then them...

for only 200$ you will get 2 more gpu's lol...

So it would be more like:

~ $660 (2x 560 2GB)
~ $1200 (2x 580 3GB)
~ $1600 (2x 590)
