I think I know the answer...but what would be better for 2560 x 1600 gaming:

EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3072MB or EVGA GTX 570 Super Clocked SLI ??

EDIT:
I already have the GTX 570 SC SLI. It works good for me...I mainly play BC2 right now...but I would sell and buy the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3072MB if I would get better performance.

a 580 with 1.5GB of ram is best, honestly you only need 3gb of memory for 3 1440p monitors

Some games already use up that 1.5gb of ram on 2560x1600, it is likely that games in the future will be even more demanding.

Op, I would go with the gtx 580 3gb version, and in the future, perhaps sli. But for that resolution, the 570's will choke, trust me.

580 3GB

Covers all screens with ease and one card is always greater than two imo.

Less driver issue possibilities, heat, save space etc etc

So do you already have the 570s in SLI? Just keep with what you have, doesn't make sense to sell it unless you get a good amount.

I used to think that way too, until I tried SLI and there is literally no flaws driver wise at all. Heat and space depends on the user's case.

Yes....I already have 570 SC SLI.
It works good for me...mainly play BC2 right now...but I would sell and buy the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3072MB if I would get better performance.

Whoa! I'm trying to figure out if it's even worth spending $600 for the GTX 580 3GB

I say buy GTX 580 3GB only if you plan to SLI it & run triple 1080P monitors in the future or roll with it for a few years with a single 1080P monitor.

The 570's will choke dude, the vram will run out and your awesome gpu's will be taken to their knees. Get the 580 if you want to game at 2560x1600.

Just remember that even if they do "choke", you would still get better performance at 1600p with 570s in SLI than a single 580. If your planning to SLI the 580 soon after, then go ahead.

edit: Oh, you already have the 1600p monitor. Check your memory usage in MSI Afterburner, if the games you play don't use up the VRAM you should be good to go.

I would say gtx 580 3gb.
I currently have dell u3011 2560 x 1600 resolution and I don't think single gtx 580 is enough for me. I might get a gtx 580 3g version too.
