again thx for all the help it is greatly appreciated

Do you plan on going with 3 way SLI?

If no, then just get the deluxe and save a few extra dollars.

dual 570's will give you more performance for the money that one 580 as suggested above or if you dont mind a couple of driver issues dual 6970's or 50's will do you a world of good. Honestly i like nvidia so i picked up a 570 over the 6000 series chips.

But in all reality unless your running like a 2600x 1600( or 1200 w/e it is) your not gonna need more than a 580 for some time in the future.

Also should get the corsair vengeance ram over the g.skill. They are very good.

Pick Evga they will rma for anything. Unless you haven't registered your card like me.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, do you really need the WS? If you plan on SLI the NF-200 chips will give you the full x16 on both slots but you barely lose like 2% performance on the 570's even if you sli on the deluxe or the pro. (Not sure if the deluxe has the NF-200 havent really checked)

All true ... Technically, 2x GTX 460's even does it ... Max settings on almost any game with 1080p.
Far cheaper than the GTX 580, and when the 460's are OC'ed, they perfrom right under the GTX 580.

Just a suggestion.

Perhaps not issues, but compared to Nvidia, AMD tends to have buggy drivers ..

Thread Starter 
thx 4 all the replies. i would like to stick to nvidia purely because i know one of their employees so he says he can get me gd customer service. im also thinkin one gtx580 mainly so it would be easy to just get another and run sli 2 upgrade rather than having to replace 2 cards. Also any other responses on what type of gtx580 is best are the zotacs really that bad its worth spending more on a different one

you can always go on ebay and get a cdkey for around 20USD. these keys are from system builders and are OEM.
