Trust me, as a guy who has 3 gtx480s, you don't need 3. Unless you're running multiple monitors at high resolutions, 2 is way more than enough horsepower for anything, if you are running multiple monitors at high resolutions, 3 won't help because you'll be out of Vram anyway (I found that out the hard way
Don't upgrade from a 480 to a 580, it's a waste. As far as getting a second 480... you could do it, but I'm not sure you need it yet. Since the price will drop further as time goes on, I would hold off picking up a second one until you have a specific game you are unhappy with performance wise. If you have a 1920x1200 resolution display or smaller, a single 480 should do pretty well for a while. (I don't mean to discourage an upgrade, gtx480s sli great, just don't blow money by upgrading before you will notice the difference).
