It comes down to this:

If you want to run BF3 or Skyrim completely maxed out on a high resolution, you WILL need to SLI. 99.9% of the time, your SLI will not cause any problems. For that rare 1% where you find a buggy game, you can easily temporarily disable it through the software. It is very easy to set up SLI and CFX. Simple as that.

Actually it comes down to this

SLI - Constantly updating drivers, possible frustration with the cards not working correctly, etc

Single GPU - Drivers installed, Good to go

V-sync fixes tearing, which I hate, and as such I always run V-sync. But it has nothing to do with microstutter. The most general reason I can give is that tearing deals with problems in a single frame (the use of old-pixels in new frames), where as microstuttering is an issue between whole frames.

I suppose disabling V-sync would increase your pFPS (partial frames per second), thus reducing microstuttering, but if the tradeoff is tearing, I'm not willing to accept."
Vsync is generally used on machines that have dated hardware or games that are dated and not optimized for current gaming equipment. screen tearing will happen in a case where you turn off vsync in one of the 2 cases i stated above. the mismatch in "graphics standards/technology" causes horizontally-moving visuals to appear out of line with the rest of the picture.

The point im trying to make for him is that yes, one 580 will run almost anything very nicely and you have less of a chance to run into any trouble. The benefits of SLI come with you have multiple monitors or running at high resolutions. SLi and xfire are being looked into more and more as game companies gear their graphics platforms towards them.

I'd get the ASRock board over the ASUS. Same quality at a lower price, plus it posts and boots a lot faster than an ASUS board. They're great overlcockers as well.

The 570gtx will be able to max out all the games you mentioned. It really comes down to how much your willing to spend. If money isn't an issue then their is no reason not to get the 580gtx.
