Thread Starter 
2x EVGA GTX 580 1.5GB Classified Hydro Copper - $680 each (SLi)
2x EVGA GTX 580 3.0GB Classified Hydro Copper - $730 each (SLi)
2x EVGA GTX 590 3.0GB Classified Hydro Copper - $900 each (Quad SLi)

using it on rog x79 motherboard (dual 16x)

Are the GTX580's the 3gb models? If so I think it would be better to go 2xgtx580 3gb sli. My sli gtx480's on air overclocks maxes pretty much everything on my 2560x1440 screen. You cards are faster and will clock way higher. Save $200 and still get great preformance.
