2x gtx 580 or 1x gtx 680?

Cant seem to find any benchmark comparisons between 2x gtx 580s and the gtx 680. I think with enough patience and shopping I can get either or for roughly the same price. I am watercooled so heat is not much of an issue, also running on 1920x1080 resolution. I personally think 2x gtx 580's will perform better and look better in my case, but would like another opinion.

  1. surely 2x GTX580 will perform better than single GTX680. But with one powerful card, you can always add another one later when you need it. Single card draw less power, produce less heat and noise better than 2 cards, but like you said earlier, you will go watercooling, so heat and noise won't be a problem for you...
  2. Everyone in this thread is saying the 2 580's spank a single 680. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/365278-33-should-switch-single
