Looks like I'll have to reconsider the one I had picked out just ran out of stock.

False

I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree with you there. 460's in SLI can hang with a 580 at 2560 and especially 1920 res. See this review.

Not at all saying that getting 460's is the best choice here but your statement is not at all accurate.

There is more to performance than just FPS. From your link you posted... "In all of our gameplay testing, we were surprised how well GTX 460 1GB SLI keeps up with the more expensive GeForce GTX 580. While it comes close, and at times exceeds it in framerate, it doesn’t deliver the same gameplay experience. The GeForce GTX 580 has more RAM on board, 1.5GB to be exact, and this seems to be giving it an advantage in some DX11 games when AA is enabled at high levels." Granted this is comparing the 580 not the 570.
