The 460's are amazing value for money and give a similar level of performance to the GTX580. Ofcourse with a 580 you could potentially add another in future, but due to the cost involved, I'd say stick with the GTX460's.

Forgot to mention that in order to really compete with a single GTX580, the 460's would need to be overclocked. Get them high enough and they can beat the single card by a reasonable margin though.

Then buy the 580. You can have that issue later when you SLi them :) ).

I always prefer a single card solution, because dual cards usually gives more problem. So if you can afford a single GTX580 then go for it... :)
