The good news is that since the release of the GTX680 (and given their price points) the GTX580 has dropped to as little as $379. So if you ever wanted a GTX580 now would be a good time to buy.

Well I guess that really depends on the individual. It has the same specs as two 680s, it's just clocked lower. So you could OC it to match the 680s in SLI. The benefit I think is essentially having dual 680s in SLI without taking up both PCIe slots. In the Aurora this will free up space for a sound card, TV tuner, Revodrive etc.
And if it's a few frames a second slower at it's stock clocks...who would notice? these are performance levels far beyond what is needed to run any game on ultra. I mean a single GTX 560TI or 570 can max out any game.
But it is a good point you bring.
DieselSS said: Well Ginny and I had a discussion last night and since she has decided on the M14X(and saving me several hundred bucks) I think I will be upgrading to either the GTX 690 or the HD7990. Since they will be priced about the same I will wait for reviews on both to see which one is the better choice. I think this will be the last GPU upgrade for my rig for sure. By the time either of these are outdated, so shall my rig be outdated and it would be time to buy or build a new one anyway.

my time has come.
I actually do have a real life, I just don't remember what the password to it is...

I will say though, that card is sharp looking:)
