570 now, kepler/maxwell later. That's my plan

Depends on what games you're looking to play and at what resolutions.

560Ti SLI costs the the same money as a single 580, if you can afford a 580 now, what should be stopping you from buying another 580 down the road?
SLI 560Tis are about 20-30% faster then a single 580, so price/perf the 560Ti SLI annihilated it.

Do you have any plans towards triplewide resolution gaming?

GTX 580. Every game you throw at it will run with flying colors. I should know- I have 3 of them.

I went through the same decision a few weeks ago with a friend. I ended up getting a 580, and he got two 560s.

The 560s are definitely more powerful, but they are a bit limited in some applications due to the smaller amount of VRAM (if you don't get the 2GB). While the 560s are also cheaper by a good margin, you have the (sometimes) worries of SLi with them.
I would think that the 580 would have a better resale value and it would have a better upgrade path.

It really just depends upon how much you want to spend and how soon you want to upgrade.

Don't forget about minimum fps or microstutter, though.

Kepler is also something to consider.

560ti SLI will be plenty of power to run current games very high Quality, it will also do very well in BF3 if that is a consideration for you.

So your choices with Kelper could be SLI mid-range cards (660/660Ti?) or a single top end card (680/690?)

Cheers,

Ishi

Definitely get the 560 Ti. Outstanding performance for the price. Will run any modern game at 1080p. For intense games like Metro 2033, OCing works wonders. Buy a 560 Ti and move to the Kepler platform when they are released early next year.

I haven't noticed microstutter with my 2, and that's at triplewide resolutions as well...

Guru3D review of 560Ti SLI

I can't see the images on my iPhone, but I'm pretty sure the minimum FPS is greater or equal to that of a single 580.

EDIT: Also 560Ti's are great clockers, and scale well with overclocking.
