I am currently split between getting one nvidia 580 and possibly in the future adding another one through SLI. Or getting two 6950 2gs and overclocking them with crossfire. What would be the best option. Or possibly two lesser nvidias and getting a motherboard with 3 slis and adding another one in the future. Basically what are your guys opinions for optimizing graphics on games such as skyrim, star wars the old republic.

Get a single GTX 580 and be done with it. There are even a few custom models out these days that are overclocked, come with custom designs and upgraded cooling.

Check out the Gigabyte SOC or MSI Lightning.

Assuming your PSU is adequate, and your MB is Crossfire capable, a pair of 6950s will far outperform a single GTX580, and in fact should rival a GTX590....and possibly even at less overall cost than a single GTX580.
