No more than ten minutes ago, I ordered the Asus Maximus IV Extreme and an i5-2500k.

Ya no kidding, even if it had enough power it only comes with 2x6+2 pin. I'm not planning on going SLI though.

You'll be more than happy with one GTX 580. It's gaming for me at max settings with AA maxed. On my already slightly factory over clock EVGA GTX 580 SC I've got a minor over clock when I game by 10% across the board.

It seems like the people who are listed at the top of the main page in terms of clock speed are just maxing out the voltage and then tweaking the core from there, probably aren't running 24/7 like that since unless they are running watercooling as well.

Benching is fun but not a 24/7 setting. Doesn't really matter which card you own. There's a difference between getting a good bench OC and a 24/7 OC and even a gaming only OC.

I keep my GTX 580 stock. I don't need an OC on my already powerful card when I can already game AA maxed out. I have a gaming profile OC anyway for Metro 2033 and Crysis for that extra push.

Over clocking shortens any cards life on 24/7. I invested for the long haul and SLI another by next summer.

Batman Arkum Asylum bench AA x16, details Very High, maxed on my GTX 580 SC @ stock voltage 1.0872v:
890 Core / 1135 Memory / 1780 Shader 12% Boost = 104 FPS
875 Core / 1111 Memory / 1750 Shader 10% Boost = 102 FPS
838 Core / 1061 Memory / 1676 Shader 5% Boost = 99 FPS
797 Core / 1013 Memory / 1594 Shader Stock = 96 FPS

All stable clocks, can complete 3D Mark 11 scores. Going any higher requires voltage bump. My highest achievement is on the first page of my 'proof' bench using 1.1 voltage @ 912 Core.

At 12% I'm on the edge of having to bump voltage. My best score was 14% on Core and Shader and at the time I was new to over clocking, I should have brought my Memory from 10% to 14% as well and would have had a slightly higher score.

In any rate the card is phenomenal and if you can afford one for a one card single GPU solution it's the best you can own next to a dual GPU anyway.

I don't even want to know how many times I have said I was "investing for the long haul"... ended up buying everything inbetween an old 9800GX2 and today
