Not always.

Play Metro 2033 (or a half dozen other games) maxed out on a single 580 and you might think otherwise. Play anything in 3D Vision and you will also see that one card, even a 580, really isn't enough.

Now three cards is stretching it, but I can absolutely see the need for two of them at that rez because I've seen, first hand, games use every bit of my SLI'd 480's at 19x10.
