They are going to be paired with a 2500k, a 700w coolermaster power supply, and an asus p8z68 -v motherboard. each 560 is a evga 1gb one(264$), the 6970 is ($417) , and the gtx 580 is ($550). Which is the best in performance and fps at 1920 x 1080 ?

P.s.: I'm sorry about making another thread but I just want a somewhat solid answer :/

2 GTX 560's will give you the performance of GTX 580(a little faster),so overall they're the fastest between the 3 choices.
I personally would opt for 1 GTX 580 because it will give you more room,less noise/temps/power consumption(compared to 2 GTX 560s)

+1

Definitely if you can afford a GTX 580, go with that. Its always better to go with 1 single high end card. Considering the fact that a 580 will probably never come down bellow $350, your best bet will be to upgrade to a better single slot card again in the future, but thats not to say you wont be able to buy another 580 used on ebay really cheap and extend its life in SLI.

That and the fact that SLI drivers are not perfect yet, definitely go with 1 GTX 580

Never said that the drivers are bad or don't work. I said they are not perfect. There is definitly a higher percentage of people having driver issues with sli and driver issues with just 1 card.

Huh. I sold my AMD cards because of all the driver issues with the crossfire setup I had 4 months ago. I waited a year for them to get things right with BFBC2 and they didn't.

Haven't had to deal with any issues with any game since I got my Nvidia cards. What's not perfect about the drivers and SLI?

What experience do you have, personally, with crossfire and SLI?
