So as I'm building a new rig, I'm researching different cards and weighing there value to performance and I am finding that that 2 9650's doesn't fall really that far behind 2 580's in forms of bench marks. I mean not enough I think to really justify the extra 400+ dollars it would cost for the sli 580's. So i'm now looking at 2 9650's that i can get for under 600 bucks not that much more then a single gtx 580 and the performance clearly blows the single 580 out of the water for really a mear 60 dollars more at best and not falling far behind the sli 580's to make much a difernce. Any thoughts here? am I going in the right direction or am I dumb?
