I don't doubt that, but that's in a perfect setup where SLI is 100% supported and used, and power is not a concern. There are definitely situations where both shine. I don't consider myself savvy enough to troubleshoot SLI issues but I am sure they outperform my card when in the right setup.

Maybe he wants to play Rage? ;P Lol just playing, my friend has the 6950 with an Eyefinity setup, and I am admittedly jealous sometimes, but Nvidia has always "just worked" for me.

It's funny because he used 'then' and not 'than'.

Indeed, but my post was not entirely directed at you, it was more directed at fstop, and his point that they need to be OC'd to beat a single 580 smile.gif

Not enough Vram on 560 Ti to be futureproof. You will run into performance/Vram bottlenecks.

Plenty of manufacturers have 2gb versions out now.

First I love these threads that compare two cards to one 580, speaks volumes on how much one 580 actually performs or highly thought of.

Two of anything over 560 or 6870's performance beats one 6970 or 580.

Two 550's or 6850's performance equals one 6970 or 580.

560ti:
Pros - cheaper, better performance then a single 580 stock after OC
Cons - no upgrade path in the future, SLI is not 100% supported in all games, takes up 4-6 slots in your cpu


580:
Pros - better performance after OC, upgrade path in future for SLI, single fastest card out right now, uses less watts
Cons - Costs a little more (not by much)

Go with the 580.

Good job explaining it fstop....quite simple. Depends on what your going to be using it for.

Now onto my opinion.....

I perfer single powerful card solution without any heat, driver, or SLI issues (micro stutter, etc) that might arise. Even if two cards can bring more FPS I don't need it. I can game ALL my games, Crysis, Crysis 2, Witcher 2, & Metro 2033 no problems. BF3 beta right now high settings I'm at 60-80 FPS.

Next gen I'll pass this card down and go with a GTX 680 most likley. Single card solutions are simplest. Also one higher performance GPU will be easier resale then two mid level GPU's, if your looking to resale by the time your done.

So there is your scenarios, up to you to decide which path your wanting to take. A lot of us concur with this and user opinions will vary. smile.gif
