I know its 4 580's and not 2 590's but it stille does scale very nicely, however I agree on 2 or 3 GTX 580 3 GB's, don't know if he'll need 3 for 1600p, but if he wants it to last maybe get a mobo with 3 slots at least so he can add one down the road if needs be.
He said he'll be on a monitor with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. That link is for 3 high resolution monitors, so of course 4 video cards will scale higher. On a single monitor the 4th gpu will be crap for scaling.

People are only going to go to Ivy if they need it. Compatibility is a new thing for Intel. I doubt it's going to even work at that. There is so much that goes into each line of processors, especially for the architecture for Intel chips. AMD's chips were built originally on compatibility. Intel, on the other hand wasn't.

LGA 1366 is just as good as LGA 1155. Hell, I've seen higher Overclocks on LGA 1366. 5Ghz + most of the time, when LGA 1155 kind of troubles with 5Ghz + unless your on LN2.

Not only does LGA 1366 clock higher, but like I said it features triple channel memory. I haven't seen a Hex-core processor land on an LGA 1155 platform. I doubt that Intel is going to make the socket's compatible. Their known for overall upgrade, so people blow their money for not too much of a performance gain going from Sandy to Ivy.

Triple channel memory is even better than Dual-channel, especially if you have a Hex core processor and want to game and listen to some music on YouTube at the same time.

If you could possibly tell me how a Hex-core processor with 12 threads is slower than an Quad-core with 8 threads?

IMO, you need to revise what you said.
Your post is full of fail. First off, core for core Sandy Bridge kills Gulftown, there is no arguing that.
Second, a six core cpu does nothing for you for gaming, so the 990X offers zero benefit over 2600k for gaming, which is what this build is for.
Third, Sandy Bridge over clocks like a beast. LGA 1366 is a good overclocking platform, but if you've seen 990Xs @ 5ghz on air, pls link me, cause 2600k/2500k can do 5ghz on air.
Fourth, it is already known that Ivy Bridge will be 1155 compatible with a BIOS update, I didn't just make this up. 1366 is EOL, there will be no more upgrading.
Fifth, triple channel ram offers no benefit outside of synthetic benchmarks. I can game, listen to music, surf the web, and write this post on dual channel ram, so what's your point?

Again, 1155 is the better buy right now, due to 1366 being dead now. You can't argue it at all, because all of LGA1366 CPU's are hitting their EOL by the end of the year. They're being phased out for LGA2011.

Like it or not, LGA1366 is a dead socket, and an absolutely stupid buy right now.
I have to agree... And triple vs dual channel memory BARELY makes a difference... and correct me if I am wrong... check out the benches...

Although 1366 is getting phased out, if you can get a good deal, or simply do HEAVY multi tasking, you will still be able to benefit from the 6 cores so i wouldnt call it an absolute stupid buy now...

Sandy Bridge DOES HAVE native Sata 6GB support that I was mad about seeing my 1366 limitations...

Back to 590 vs 580, I'd stick with the gtx 580 sli, and would only convince people to buy the GTX 590 if they only had one slot available... I would personally pick the 6990 over the gtx 590 sadly...

I would agree with this, the six cores are def good for certain uses. However, I do believe he stated this was a build for gaming.

I own 2 2600k rigs and a 1366 i7 970 rig. If you are just going to game get the 2500k now(HT does nothing for gaming anyways) and wait for the SB-E to come out with the 6 core cpus in a couple months. You wont be able to see any actual performance difference when gaming. As far as your GPU goes it will be better to get the 3Gb GTX 580's in SLI for 1600P so it does not choke when you crank up AA. Thats just my
