My 570 overclocked to 850 beat a 580 in the Metro bench thread. But the guy was using a 1055T x6 @ stock speed.

I still beat him though. biggrin.gif

At 2560x1600 the sli to tri sli jump is pretty significant. At 1080p, not so much. It's all about what you want to spend your money on.

Hopefully just to reinforce you... I'm only running one 570 and I think it is plenty. I only game at 1920x1200 though. I think you're wise to just stick with the 2x 570s for now... see how it suits you, and a couple months down the road if you need/want more... buy another (for significantly less money, too!). I bet you will be absolutely impressed by the 570's in SLI and can use that extra money for things like: ordering dominos so you can game more, buying more games?, other bills, etc...
