Your o/c would be fine for SLI 580's without "bottlenecking" them

Certain games might still get a bit of bottlenecking, especially games that utilize more CPU such as Starcraft and less graphically games such as Rage...

4.3GHZ is more than enough for the latest games though but note you will get some CPU and/or GPU bottlenecks regardless...

two 580's will be good with a 2500K either way...
have fun!

Like you'll ever have problems running StarCraft even at stock.

That point is moot because you won't notice it.
