I'ld get the just 1 GTX580, then get the second for SLI when I needed it if you're just running one screen.

From what I read a while back the benefits of a 3 way sli is not that much more than a 2 way. Go for the faster chips.

I would go for the 580's as two of them will dominate most ever game at most every resolution you can throw at it - 3 way 570's is great as well, problem being though that in order to properly utilize tri-sli, you need a Nvidia Surround setup, and then you start running out of vram quickly.
