But in SLi i'd expect them to be around 50% quicker than the single 580. Considering that the gtx560ti 384 core is still around 30% quicker in Sli.

1. do you really need all this ssd space?? Only the os really benefit from it.. installing on it dont really do anything after the game is lunched...
You can save a lot of money here

2. 8 go, 750 watt psu for a single gtx580 smile.gif sound good to me wink.gif

3. You should wait a little bit to get an hdd...instesad of getting a 256 go ssd. get a 128 go/120 go and put your stuff on it while waiting for a price drop wink.gif


I would not go with sli/cfx... there are so many people disappointed of shuttering/bug or no caps for the game they play.

You probably already know this, but 40 fps with a single card and 40 fps with two cards won't feel the same. The single card will feel smoother, so you can't really equate them since it's really apples to oranges. If you've played around with dual card rigs, you'll know what i'm talking about. If not, there's several reviews that explain it.

Sli 560's complete cane the GTX580, yes microstutter can be an issue in some games but hey, this is the risk you have to weigh up.

Personally, i'd have to go with the dual card setup. I'd rather take the risk of having a small bit of syncing issue sometimes rather than sacrifice power. But it's really down to personal choice.

But yes, I do understand why some people prefer single cards rather than dual cards.

Now I personally would rather perfect crisp, clean, smooth gameplay with no issues and take a minor performance hit and in my mind it's really not a performance hit cause it takes 2 cards to overcome one. In my mind that means I the one card is the better option. I'd rather have the better card than the 2 inferior cards that together are better than the one, but thats just me. I mean would you rather 1 best friend or 2 acquaintances?

I couldn't care less about what's inside my case, how many there are, what it looks like, etc. All I care about is hassle free as much as possible and with as little noise as possible. To me, if two cards can perform "better" than 1 card and the price point is the same, I'd go with the two cards. However, that's not really the case in reality because two cards opens up a new can of worms (microstutter, game compatibility, increased driver issues, twice the chance of hardware failure, requires more expensive motherboard, etc). I'd jump to SLI or Crossfire in a heartbeat if they ever perfect it, but I haven't been impressed with the dual card setups I've built for others. For now, I'm a one card guy.

Ok I think charlesquik was right about my SSD I could probably get away with a 120-128GB, but here in lies a problem. In this storage range the Crucial M4 128GB is one of the most expensive at $210. There are alot of SSDs that have been proven faster and are alot cheaper than the M4, but what should I get. A Corsair Force Series 3, an OCZ Vertex 3, a Mushkin Chronos, a Corsair Force GT, or a Patriot Pyro? So many choices HEELLLLPPPP!!!!!!

I said "overclocked". The in-game compares at stock,except this one 392

If you are against the M4, get the Vertex 3. You may have problems, but I have heard they fixed them with a firmware update. If you have headaches, be ready to RMA it. If you wait, I have heard the 580s are dropping to around 380 within a month or so, and I bet you also see M4's go on sale at that point. Just a thought.

The seasonic 750 will be great for your build as long as you don't SLI your 580. I guess it may be OK, but I've also read 850s for SLI 580s are better.
