GTX480 3way VS. GTX580 2way which one is better ??
It is an interesting question ??
what is the level of GTX480 3way SLI??
compared with 2way of GTX 580, 570, 560 which one is better ??
the problem is my current cards are 480 2way
the way to upgrade is
1. add one 480 but watercooling with higher power may be needed
2. or shift to 580 2 way
this seems 580 2way is not much stronger than 480 2 ways ???

Two way is often better due to scaling. The performance gained from going two way to three was isn't as great as going from a single card to having two but the scaling is the worst when you go from two or three cards to having four. Three is as far as you want to go any more then the gains will be just two small to be worth it. So I suggest getting two gtx 580 and sticking with them. Less power used, less heat, and better scaling. Will likely come close or out perform the 3x 480 depending on your system and the clocks on the cards.
