How is the EVGA GTX 570 SOC http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130595 I can get it for $300 new at a local store!

Still wondering if an SOC'ed GTX 570 is equal to a stock GTX 580...

The EVGA SOC's are pretty stable, especially when compared with Gigabyte's, but I'm talking about Gigabyte's 560 Ti. The reviews for Gigabyte's 570 SOC looks pretty good, actually. I think an overclocked GTX 570 starts to match the stock 580 at around 875 Core MHz.

The only issue on refurbs is that sometimes they come with a modified warranty. I'd look at that before buying. Some manufactures continue coverage with serial based warranty, I think EVGA gives you a 90day

Would I be able to overclock the EVGA 570 SOC anymore than it already is (while still keeping it stable)? Cause if I was able to buy that for $300 and get it to perform like a 580 that would be epic!

I would go for GIGABYTE's SO series, both of those two cards 570SO and 580SO are nice to choose, they offer much larger "Vapor Chamber" and tri-fans windforce3X cooler, the most important is that OC Guru overclock software that only fits to SO version, so that you can tweak the settings easily when you use GIGABYTE's SO series cards.

Both are great cards and a lot of performance and you'll be happy with either in games right now on single 1080p monitor.

My choice is: GTX 580 over clocks higher with further percentages in comparison over GTX 570 can.

What Im really wanting is the ability is max out BF3 at 1080p and be future proof 2 or 3 years after that, according to this http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/39912-evga-geforce-gtx-570-superclocked-review-20.html Id be able to OC the EVGA GTX 570 SC above the average GTX 580 at 874 mHz. How much more would I be able to OC the Gigabyte GTX 570 SC since it already has a core clock of 845 mHz, also would the better cooling would it be more stable?

From my experience the Gigabyte SOC are binned, that means they should overclock better than reference cards with lower voltages and the cooling is very silent and efficient.

Now most Fermi cards usually reach 850-900MHz so I don't think there's a lot of OC potential left on that 570 but it should be on par with a 580. The difference between the 2 is not very large.

2 to 3 years future proof. GTX 580 hands down.

Yes, the 570 can be faster than a STOCK 580 if it is OC'd. An 580 that you Overclock will murder an OC'd 570, though.

The potential to Overclock varies from GPU to GPU.

Better cooling doesn't me more stable, it just means better cooling for more potential to be overclocked.

Again, I suggest getting a GTX 580.

What 'That Guy' said exactly.

Plus a GTX 570 @ 874Mhz Core isn't the same performance as a GTX 580 874 Core. The cores performance vary from lines. 570=480 Processing Cores 320 Bit / 580=512 Processing Cores 384 Bit.

Example a GTX 560 336 Processing Cores 256 Bit @ 1000Mhz core dosen't out perform a GTX 580 @ 875Mhz core. They're different.

The game BF3 was first shown on a 12min trailer played on one GTX 580 and did very well. So your GTX 570 OC'd would be great. It's not far behind the GTX 580 when it's OC'd at stock. You'll get the below performance.
