Not quite on topic with motherboards, so hiding my response in a spoiler! (Click to show)

It wasn't a waste for you, actually. The Ultra Classifieds are hand-binned for performance / overclock potential. They're a cut above the Classifieds. I don't own Batman AC, but I'm able to play BF3 on ultra at 1920x1200 and I rip through Skyrim seamlessly even with a ton of mods and more ugrids and draw distance.
I'm waiting to see what the kepler cards are like on release. If they're good and they overclock well, I'll buy a kepler with 3 GB of RAM and sell my current GTX 580. If they don't perform as well as I'd like, I'll buy a GTX 580 Ultra Classified, like you did, and sell this 580. I'm folding stable at 934.5 MHz core / 1869 MHz shader / 2138 MHz memory / 1.150V / 75C and I'm gaming stable up at 962 / 1924 / 2277 / 1.150 but I'd really like to have 3 GB of RAM on the card. The price has come down considerably already. The other option would be to wait until the second phase of Kepler cards come out.
Oh yeah, this is a motherboard thread.
My motherboard can easily handle a dual or triple SLI... Maybe I'll SLI two 580 3GB cards or two high-memory keplers!
