ya but the whole point of getting a single 580 is taht you can add another one later on. it's called "future proofing" even though most of use would most likely just buy the new gpu solution at that time. ~lol

Yes they would but I would see if whatever specific program you intend on using can A) recognize and take advantage of more than one card, and B) wouldn't benefit from more than a gig of VRAM. If both of those are yes then SLI 560ti would be a great choice, if the program you use could not take advantage of two cards or could use more than 1 Gb of VRAM then the 3Gb Lightning may in fact make more sense.

Nope, they only ones I'm aware off should be avoided as they have very weak VRMs.

I think this really come down to the two questions I advised you to get answers to in my post above, because if you can utilize two cards and don't need more than 1Gb of VRAM then 560ti SLI is a great choice. If you can't utilize two cards and might want more than 1Gb of VRAM then the 3Gb Lightning would be best. I don't see a whole lot that you stand to gain from anything in between those two options.

Yes. Or the Asus DCII, except it takes up 3 slots.

There is the option of 2gb 560Ti's in SLI... That's the option I chose over a 580... Though I do need SLI for Triple-wide gaming, so that played a large part in my decision making :-)
