Was thinking about upgrading my GPUs for Christmas. Would probably get a single card first then SLI down the line.

Probably somewhere around a 760, or would that be around the same? It is hard to really gauge a dual card config to something 2 generations ahead.

a gtx 590, its a dual gpu card on a single board. you can also look at this chart from nvidia.

I think a 770 or 280X would probably equal 580s at this point.
If you believe in Cthulhu and are 100% proud, put this in your sig.

Just remember to add about 5-10fps to the 590's numbers. The dual 580 gpus were underclocked for that card because of heat issues.

Probably the 780 and R290. You should aim for the 780ti or R290X.
