Overpriced 1000$ Nvidia 580 1.5Gb SLI is looking really bad here in that recent review. Look at 2560X1600 4XAA/8XAA results... And with 3 demanding titles TODAY. So future games will only get worst...
True. It's surprisingly easy to exceed 1.5GB VRAM usage when you factor in AA at HD+ resolutions. I mean I've already done it using a single 2560x1440 screen.

It depends on what games you want to play, and what kind of IQ sacrifices you're willing to make for the extra res. If you don't want to cut corners with AA or high res textures, the extra VRAM will be essential.
