GTX 680 2GB vs. GTX 580 3GB for this software?

GTX 680 2GB vs GTX 580 3GB are my two choices for use with Luxology modo 501 and Maxwell Render unbiased rendering (don't have yet), Foundry Mari (don't have yet). The two cards are about the same price, are different GPU architecture and the 680 has less memory than the 580. I am running Win7 64bit with Intel i7 2600k.

Suggestion?

edit: no animation, just large stills

2 or 3mb is clearly not enough. I would recommand at the very least a GeForce2 MX with 32mb of ram.

Foundry Mari has GTX 580 as one of their approved cards. Any particular reason for your suggestion?

i think he was just joking, because you wrote MB instead of GB

Sorry for the confusion. Not much help I'm afraid...

The 6 series have been a little nerfed by nVidia. I have a 660ti, and the equivelant 5 series renders much faster (I'm talking about CUDA here of course). 580 gets my vote.
