I would go for 580 for one reason - in future u will be able upgrade to SLI. Of course 2x560Ti will be faster then 580 up to day, but in future?

I would go for the Palit one. Not that the Evga one ain't good, but the Palit one seems cheaper (dunna if they include shipping in there, since the Evga one is already included) and the fan seems better than the stock one. These stock fans seem to make some noise (obviously since they are like wind tunnels) compared to the other ones.
