i am going to be doing a new comp build in the next month. cant make up my mind to get a 580 or 570(& buy cheap card for physx down the road if needed). the only 3 games i plan on buying in the next cpl of years are gw2, d3, & torchlight2. the monitor will be a dell 23'' ultrasharp. advice appreciated!

i will also be running a 19'' 2nd monitor for putting maps, vent screen etc. plan on using the onboard graphics in 2600k( will be z chipset) for this monitor. anybody see any problems with this setup?

is on my list, the only neg is that it is halfway to 580 price from 570 price. course u get more ram than stk 580..
the other thing i should have mentioned is that i require a lifetime warranty. as far as i know that limits me to zotac & evga.
