Yup, he's braggin' for sure. Plus he only has a 1920x1080 LCD. Overkill/unnecessary waste of $1500. One 580 is enough for that res, that's for damn sure.

I was thinking about GTX580 or SLI GTX470 and i think SLI GTX470 is the best solution for money cause it scales amazingly good and it just rocks. On top of that i added GTX260 as dedicated phyx card.

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.
