With that kind of budget, I would get an Ssd since they don't cost that much anymore. A good one like the M4 120gb is like $130 or so. You would need an sli bridge if you get two of those cards. The motherboard should include in one of those bridge if it supports sli. Personally, I would buy just one graphics card first then see how it does. If you really need that extra sauce, then you can still buy it later.
Laptop: MacBook Pro 13"
Case: Drawer turned to case CPU: Intel Core i3 2100 CPU Cooler: Stock brah GPU: EVGA GTX 460 HDD: Corsair Nova 32GB Motherboard: GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Z68 RAM: Ripjaw 8GB 1600 Optical Drive: Don't need PSU: 620W Antec Neo ECO. Operating System: OS X Lion/ Windows 7x64

I would go with a 7870 or 7850 instead of the gtx 570 because the 7870 is roughly 10% faster in most scenarios while and the 7850 is pretty much on par with the 570 while consuming 100w less and the 7850 is $50 less and the 7870 is about $50 more. The 570 is at an awkward placement with pricing right in the middle yet offers what the lower price card does.
