If your using only one monitor then it dosen't matter 1.5GB or 3GB. If your thinking EVGA the vanilla flavor is as over clockable as the Super clocked.

When I first bought mine I thought that the SC versions had better binned VRM because technically the vendor is garranteeing the card under warranty at higher over clock. There seems to be conflicting info about this now as rumor and not fact but not proven either way.

Another thing you should ask yourself is if you want the hot air being blown out the back of your tower or not.

MSI Lightnings have better cooling of the GPU and can achieve higher over clocks. The hot air however is dumped inside your tower which will bring up ambient temps even though your GPU is cooler. If you have a well ventilated tower then you won't have any issues and I'd go MSI Lightning.

I personally wanted the hot air exhaust being blown out the back air flow bracket because I like to over clock my CPU and this helps keep the CPU temp down as well.

Personaly preference. Post your system specs as well. It's easier for those offering help to know what the OP is dealing with. Good luck.

I've never run out of memory using 1.5GB 580's on at 2560x1600 unless I start going crazy with AA (16x+), which is almost never required because of the pixel density.

Great GPU. Runs very cool compared to reference cards. Only thing you should know it's a three slot card. You'll plug it into PCIe slot #1 and it will cover PCIe slot #2. It's also quieter than MSI Lightning card.
