2x 570 will guzzle down power, and you can get 2x 7870 which is pretty much the same thing, but uses less power, and is quieter.

7850s perform like a 570. 7870 performs more like a 580

7850s perform less than a 570, not the same, but the difference isn't by much. The 7870 does perform a lot like a 580, though.

The case, gpus and power supply I have from a previous Cyberpower computer. And yes I have put my gtx 570s on eBay. Planning on 670...?

Edit: Well that was fast, sold them both for $380. Now I have two choices. 1)Buy 680 and have to bring 70 dollars out of my pocket, or 2)Buy 670 and also buy a razer blackwidow keyboard (yes i know it may not be the best, but i think its respectable for $60. And my current keyboard powers down when i press too hard.
