Wouldn't buy the GTX 570's tbh...

1.2gb of VRAM is not enough for today's games at high resolutions with anti-aliasing so you'll be suffering in the next 12-18 months with them.

Stick to cards with 2Gb+ of VRAM to help stay future proof., Last thing you want to do is drop your hard earned money on a set of cards that you'll have to drop the texture settings down on.

Either of these..

2x GTX 560 TI's in SLI are no slouch either!

Also if all you do is pure gaming on your PC ditch the 2600k and buy a 2500k, money saved then you could put towards faster graphics cards.

A 2600k and 2500k are not that far apart in gaming, If at all...

You'll be fine with two 570s with 1.25 GB VRAM. People exaggerate the ill-effects of running out of VRAM. I too play on one monitor at 1920 x 1080 and do use some AA and still encounter no FPS problems or stuttering.

You're ok now but what about 12months+ time? Can you play BF3 maxxed with AA with decent performance?

He's planning on SLI'ing later on meening he plans to keep these cards for a while so he needs more VRAM to help him get the longest life out of these cards as possible.

Thought about AMD? A 7950 3Gb wouldn't be a bad investment, Dropping $400 on a 500 series card is a waste when the new cards from AMD are here and the Nvidia ones aren't far away.

i kind of want to try a nvidia card, iv always had amd/ati builds and i want to try something different, also iv heard the 560ti 2gb and video cards with more vram run hotter im not quite sure.
