Due to the fact that there will be increased heat with the 570 running in sli, will the EVGA SC GTX 570 be ok? or is there a much better option?

I suggest that you settle for two reference cards for external exhaust vs the nonrefernce clocks that dump much of the heat in the case. Only settle for cards that have the mid plate. You need to make sure that there is plenty of air flow even then to ensure good temps. Beyond that your problems should be few and far between.

What are your system specs?

COOLER MASTER HAF 922

Asus P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0)

EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570 (possibly sli in the near future)

Corsair HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W

Intel Core i7-2600K

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (x2 for 8gb)

Western Digital VelociRaptor WD4500HLHX 450GB 10000 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s

.... i haven't built the computer yet... im still trying to figure out what brand of graphics card i should get and whether or not the hx 850psu will be good enough... I've heard from a lot of people that it will be good enough, and others say no...

the EVGA is a manufacture design and it is external exhaust... No?

yep, EVGA cards have the manufacture design, meaning external exhaust. if you plan to do sli you wont have major issues with heat just keep in mind that you should buy the exactly same card from evga in order to keep the same clock frequency on both cards. If you buy another gtx570 from another brand clock and memory frequencies might no be the same and will be reajusted to the lower one.

That is incorrect, SLI has not synchronized clocks since 2008 unlike ATI.
