Default Re: debating a second gtx 590 or two gtx 580 3gb's

this is the main reason I debated this subject. I don't think multimonitor gaming can be done (meaning it can handle it) on one gpu. Now I am not doing mm gaming, but I were, it would be done on a dual gpu or mutli-gpu(meaning more than one card) setup ,regardless of AMD or NV. All I can say is by Christmas when intel brings pci-e 3.0 to market along with NV and AMD graphics, they better be coming with at least 3gb per gpu. Because if games that are from 2010 like Metro 2033 can eat up 2.5gb of vram then on mm setups, what do you expect will come about by Christmas this year? And since AMD hasn't announced PCI 3.0 chipsets yet, so that is why I was considering pci-e 2.0 3gb for my future as a possible solution.
