It's looking like everyone thinks I should go for the SLI. This is good since this was my initial thought.
I forgot to mention that i only played Caspian Border twice. So im not sure if you would lagg on the larger maps.

I was in the exact same situation as you about a month ago. Had a GTX 570 SC and was wondering whether to (a) buy another 570 or (b) sell it and get a 3GB 580.

The main issue I had was laggy gameplay in Crysis 2 and Metro 2033 due to dips in FPS. Think I was getting average 40fps in crysis and 35 in metro. Buying the second 570 completely removed this issue. Crysis 2 now averages 70fps and metro stays above 60. If I had upgraded to a single 580 then I would have maybe got an extra 5-10fps in these games which would have been a pointless upgrade for me.

Vram is overrated imo (depending on your resolution). Crysis 2 maxes out my vram - does it casue any issues? No.

I am going to go ahead and SLI the 570 SC editions then. Now I just have to decide whether or not to put everything under water. I was definitely doing the CPU but now with 2x cards I may have to do it all.

You can't wait 10 days to try the game first? Not that you will be disappointing with SLI 570's, but at least you will know for sure you wouldn't be happy with one.

Oh this was going to happen anyway. I just wasn't sure what route to take. I didn't want to put the 570's in SLI if it couldn't even handle BF3.

I need to get going on my water and I wanted to make this decision first.

3GB VRAM will have little or nil noticeable benefit to your resolution of 2048x1152.
I have seen a study on GTX460 1GB vs 2GB and it showed that the framerate impact is minimal as long as you do not go over the VRAM by ~0.5GB. This is an approximate figure, of course. In other words, there is an effective headroom of ~0.5GB (from the system RAM) available before seeing significant fps impact. This is why many people report that their VRAM is maxed but no framerate drops.

Read this guide by Nvidia. I think a single GTX570 should be enough, especially highly overclocked. But a pair will certainly be very happy.

Awesome link man! It looks like High with a few Ultra settings is possible with 1 card and full Ultra with 2. Exxxxcellent.

Medium to high mix with 1. You could do high, but expect ~35 fps..
