Default EVGA GTX 580 memory

Ok, it's time to look for a new GPU, cc >= 2.0, so I decided to "adopt" a GTX 580.

I just noticed that the clock of this model ranges from 770 to 800 MHz, while the onboard memory is either 1536 or 3072MB.

I'd like some indication about the more reliable manufacturers (ASUS, Zotac, EVGA...), and some information related to the use of 3GB of onboard memory with the actual programs we all know (mfaktc, cudalucas, msieve,, gpu-ecm...): is it worth having more memory, or the latency/bandwidth problems tend to minimize its use?
