The GTX 460 and GTX 560 TI yields more bang for the buck.
2x GTX 560 TI's deliver more performance than a single GTX 580. Usually cheaper.

A single GTX 460 delivers around 55-60% of what a GTX 570 delivers.
While a GTX 560 TI delivers around 130% of what a GTX 460 delivers performance wise.
Which concludes that the gap between a GTX 560 TI and a GTX 570 isn't exactly huge. Hence the GTX 560 TI is more bang for the buck.

If you get 2x GTX 570, it can be somewhat overkill for a 1080p (55+ FPS on the most demanding game out there) - all depending on your needs of course.
Then again, the game requirements keep raising. Your call.

I guess going with a 580 would be best, and in a month go SLI if i want.

Crap, kicking myself for not getting 16Gb ram, I could have doubled my ram for 50 bucks, but I already ordered it >.<

2x GTX 580 for 1080p ? Which games do you play ?

Unless you're using a 120Hz monitor and playing Metro 2033 on absolutely highest settings, it's usually considered pretty overkill.

this may be interesting. Crysis 2 with the DX11 Patch is in the top 2 of most demanding games atm.

save yourself money on the i7-2600k , get yourself a i5-2500k and a SSD ... get rid of the raptor drive and grab yourself a 1tb drive

Yes get the 580 now, and when BF3 comes out or if you want to play crysis 2 at ultra max dx11 ...add another 580.

I did drop the VR, buying a 1TB WD black HDD, not sure about an SSD though, thinking about it. I also dropped the 2600k and went with the 2500k.

I would say save yourself the money and get the 560 ti and see how it treats you if you don't like the performance get another one. two 560 ti out performance a single 580 and is cheaper. Than just wait for GeForce 600 series which should come out in 2011 Q4 or sometime 2012 I'd say Q1 but depends on delays but one or two 560 ti with be better bang for the buck and still hold up to any current game and future games like BF3.
