EVGA I'm pretty sure makes a 2GB and 3GB version of the GTX580. You should be fine with one of those cards. I do know at 1920x1200 my single GTX 470 can max out BF3 completely and I still get a fluid frame rate of 30 to 60 fps depending, but I never go below 30, and to my eyes I simply can't tell the difference and anything that is 30fps or higher looks fluid. Some people need to rub their epeens and say that they can tell the difference with things over 60fps I call BS. I do plan on reinstalling Metro 2033 as that game to date is pretty much the only game that can stress a rig to it's absolute limits due to it's optional physx settings and other intra-quit video settings. I hear Arkum City is the same way - but I don't own it.

Dual GTX 580's would be ideal at extreme resolutions - the 2GB versions, but me personally... I don't care for SLI or Cross Fire as I HATE micro stuttering and every time I've run two cards together I notice it. Also about half the games I play do not support SLI anyways, so I personally feel that one high end beast of a card is better. Saves energy as well as you don't need an insane power supply feeding ungodly amounts of power to two graphics cards. AMD/ATI who are known to use less power than Nvidia cards even surprised me when I read that AMD feels that a PSU of 1300 Watts is best for a HD 6990. Kind of blew me away.

This of course is all my opinion and others will have their own opinions as well.

EVGA makes 1.5GB and 3GB of the GTX580. I have not seen a 2GB version anywhere.

Personally I have 2 U2711 set to 2560x1440 and 3-Way GTX 580 1.5GB. When I run BF3 on ULTRA (that's with everything at max, not 'ULTRA' with AA and whatever turned down or disabled), I am not able to play BF3. My frame rates jump between 20-40fps and the game is very choppy. I can play at 1920x1080 on ULTRA without any problems. I see 100-130FPS here.

I currently run at BF3 on HIGH at 2560x1440 without any problems with 80-110fps.
