Actually according to these benchmark reviews. A single GTX580 outperforms 3-way SLI GTX285s @ 2560x1600. Crazy huh? 2-way sli 285s in crysis warhead dx10 @ 2560x1600 get 24fps. A single GTX580 in crysis warhead dx10 @ 2560x1600 gets 40fps. It outperforms any number of 285s @ 2560x1600. It also outperforms the sli 285s at every resolution as well. A single GTX470 gets 42fps @ 1920x1080 while SLI 285s get 59fp. With some huge overclocks to the 470, it could come very close to an sli'ed 285 setup. 3dmarkvantage scores compared: 14,872 points for the GTX470 while the SLI 285 setup makes a pretty darn incredible 22,223 points. Again the GTX580 wins making an outstanding 24,848 points!!! GTX 580 bencharmk http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-580-review/16 GTX285 single/ sli/ and 3-way sli benchmark http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-285-review--3way-sli/17 **When i get my GTX470 next week, and you have your 285s up and running. We should do some comparison tests, in several different benchmarks. Sounds fun huh?!? *EDIT* After reading this review. http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-570-review/1 I have decided i'm going to get a GTX570 rather. It's actually worth it! plus 21fps on metro2033 for the 470 is way too low. Even after i overclocked it to the max, i may not break 30fps. The 570 on the other hand pulls off 27fps. With minor to major overclock I believe it would easily break 30fps+.
