I do not agree with your Lucid Virtu MVP as a reason to get a 680.
Firstly, it only last 30 days there is no way as of yet to purchase a full version.
It boosts ur BENCHMARK scores, but in real world application and gaming it does not boost ur fps. Actually, people on xtremesystems.org have complained about it lowering their FPS by 10-20.
Honestly, I would stay with the SLI 580s. I'm not sure if you have the 3gb 580s or the 1.5 gb. If you have the 3gb version. You're better off with that. Personally, I am waiting for the 4gb 680 from EVGA before I buy one. Who knows I might change my mind because the GK110 are going to be released in 6 months and I might wait for that even. The 780 might just last as long as the 580. The 580 was king from Nov 2010 to Jan 2012. The 480 was replaced 6 months later by the 580.
