Too old now, I own a pair myself, equivalent to a 5970 so I'm still happy for single screen
If OP can afford it,
Get the 6950 crossfire:
Beats a 580, 570 sli, 6990 (with a bit of OC) and inturn equivalent to a 6970 crossfire. And is a bit costlier than a 580.
Why is this even being debated? 6950 is great now, expandable to quadfire later. Also get the MSI Power Edition 6950 2gb. And Op, I really hope you aren't dead set on that psu, get a better efficiency, lesser rated unit that's modular, like a modular 750 if you go double card, or single card with possibility of upgrade, or a 550w for a single card.
Just realized your motherboard only allows for trifire. If you went AMD and want to expand to quadfire, step down on the motherboard to the ASUS p8p67 WS revolution.
Edit: the motherboard allows for 4 x 2.0 pcie 16 lanes at x8 for each. For dual you get true x16 bandwidth thanks to the nf200.Edited by Spykerv - 6/10/11 at 9:22am
