That depends on how far down the road. Seriously though, I think I prefer a single card and then adding a second for SLI once prices drop. And to be honest, my single 570 is running everything swimmingly, so SLI at this point is overkill (for me at least).

Aren't they still in the ridiculous numbers for Step Up?

You'll be waiting for quite some time. I think you'd be better off getting another 570.

All up to you though.

Oh yeah that's right,, and the step up to the 580s ends in February right? I thought I read that somewhere.

Nvm.. can find no proof of this.

I thought it was 90 days from purchase, not a fixed time?

I would be pissed if they had a definite ending date regardless of when the card was purchased.

I hope so. I might take the plunge and sign up for stepup if I REALLY feel the 570 isn't enough. But for now with only a slight OC to the SC standards it seems to run great in games.

Only thing I'm worried about is my CPU bottlenecking since it's still at stock clock.

Haha I am going to. This is my first build and between work and school I haven't really had much time to sit around and screw with the BIOS.

Not to mention that I don't know too much regarding all the freaking options! I found someone elses overclocks for the i7-950 that I plan on testing and tweaking as necessary.

I just don't feel like screwing up my first rig. Lmao.

I might give it a shot later today and see how it goes. Wish me luck. Lol.

I noticed that when my 570 is OC'd to the superclocked clocks I only see like 97% usage. Does that mean it's bottlenecking?

I doubt it.. .. I bet you saw that 97% usage with EVGA OC scanner right?
