Hello folks..

I'm needing some help deciding what Graphics card to get.

I'd strongly prefer nVidia.

Case: HAF X
Mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/Gen3
Display: One 1920x1080, One 1680x1050

I'm wondering what to get, I'd like to save some cash..

The eVGA GTX 580 looks great, but it's expensive, So I started looking at GTX 570's and I'm not sure which brand to go for...
I've also been looking into GTX 560ti's, 2 of them in SLI would be 15% cheaper than a single GTX 580...
So, Any help please ?

If you want a single card then GTX570 is a good option. But do look at some AMD cards as they are very good as well!

They're getting upgraded? Really? I didn't know that..
Well atm, 2x GTX 560 ti are a bit cheaper than a single GTX 580,
How much of a performance boost will I get with 2x GTX 560 ti's instead of a GTX 580 (At standard Clock Speeds)?
And will there be any problems with SLI in any games ? If so, What games ? I'd really like to know.

Well a GTX 570 is on par with a HD6970 by the looks of it, I'll be using a single 1920x1080 display for gaming...

What brands of those Cards would you recommend ? If I get either of those I'll probably SLI/Crossfire in the future...

2 X GTX 560ti's are faster and cheaper than the GTX 580, it also depends on the games being played.
SLI in games all comes down to the drivers , most games have updated SLI profiles for the games to run optimal.

560ti's will be upgraded to be on par with the gtx 570.
