Right now I've got two GTX 580's in SLI (gigabyte soc and msi twin frozer II, both 1,5gb versions). I got two monitors connected to them and a TV for couch gaming/XBMC.

I've been looking around a bit to replace them with a single new card, a GTX 780 would set me back around 500 (I should be able to get around 150 euro per card if i sell them online though, maybe more if I'm patient). But if I buy a GTX 780 I wouldn't be able to use all 3 screens at once, so I'm looking at the AMD equivalent as well.

Anyway, how much of a performance increase would I get if I buy a current generation single card and would that increase be worth it to upgrade?

Why do you think that you can't use 3 monitors with a 780?

Also, I think a 780 might be a downgrade from a sli 580.

Pretty much this. I had sli 580's and upgraded to a 7970 and a 7950. Couldn't be any happier.
