But if you just now upgrading to the 580s, and haven't purchased yet, 3GB versions would seem to make more sense.
Noted, I came from 3 570's and I was being limited by vram.

It made more sense iny case to go to the 3gb 580's than the normal ones.

They should be here on Thursday, I'm super stoked. I will post some benches at 2560x1600.

3 570's are still very solid, so why not wait a mere 6 months for Kepler?

I have never been into waiting for the next thing. If Kepler really does drop in 6 months and I need a boost, which I doubt, I can sell these and try out Kepler.
