The 580 is about the same price.. so wouldnt NVIDIA drop price to compete?
Unless they change their typical game plan Nvidia's response will be the introduction of the new cards and you will not see 90's untill late 1Q early 2Q. Company's/venders like EVGA control their own prices and since they have the market cornered as far as customer service, reliability, upgrad-ability, and tune-ability I don't see them bending that quickly because of ATI. You don't have to take my word for it.

You want minimum 2Gb in SLI.
What is affordable tomorrow in sli will be useless in the near future too.
Considering what Vram actually does 480 stream possessors is more then enough for modern games specially for what the OP is interested in. Considering the nature of mmo's you wont be upgrading for a number of years since you will be playing pretty much one game during that time.Edited by DigitrevX - 1/4/12 at 11:19am
