3 monitor setup, sli Gtx 580 vs 780. Hi I was wondering if anybody can help me answer this question. I'm currently running 2x 580 sli on my 3 monitor setup with nvidia surround. Now I'm trying to find a single gpu solution to reduce the heat comming from a dual card setup. Would a single Gtx 780 " galaxy hof" version give me better performance and heat control vs 2x580? Thx in advance

780 is almost dead on the same speed as SLI 580, if a touch faster.

Get 780 and drop resolution, and you'll be golden! By dropping res I mean like to 2560x1080 if I am correct on the numbers

Anybody else has a thoughts or hard numbers that proves that a single 780 is about the same or better the 2x580 sli?

590 is 580 SLI with a tiny core clock decrease.
