I am not interested in overclocking my cards at the moment but I may OC later on.

I have looked everywhere for benchmark sli on these cards but it is next to impossible. All help is greatly appreciated!
I'm guessing you are going to upgrade your motherboard too?
Get another 570 for sure.

Yer. I am considering either the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 or Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7.

if you plan to do multi-monitor in the future, the 2 GB GTX 560 Ti SLI will help. the 570 will choke on ram.
if you only want to do single monitor, either the 1 GB GTX 560 Ti SLI or the 1.2 GB GTX 570 SLI will be more than sufficient for 99% of released games, with all settings cranked up.

If you plan on doing Nvidia surround the 2GB of memory will come in handy. Otherwise, 570's are a good bit faster than 560's...

You absolutely do not need more than 12GB of RAM for gaming.

And I agree with everyone, go with the 570s.

Don't forget to buy a better PSU as well. Your Thermaltake won't hold up to 570's in SLI, and might even choke on 560's in SLI.

Your CPU will also slow things down a good bit as well in some games. But the PSU will be a must if you don't want anything to blow up.

What I mean is couldn't I dedicate more ram to the graphics card from my current system ram.

I was considering this as the power supply, http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=13525 or is it still too weak. If it is what sort of power supply do you think I should get?

I might end up getting a bulldozer processor eventually, but there is nothing wrong with a 1090t is there?

Avoid CoolerMaster PSU's. Your rig will thank you.

Pick anything from this list. 550-650w is more than enough for any single GPU setup. 750w would do 570 SLI. 850w would do 580 SLI.
