GeForce GTX 580 Review
GeForce GTX 580 is a high-end GFX based on the 2010, 40nm, Fermi architecture.
It's based on the Fermi GF110 Core and offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 48 ROPs, on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 772MHz and the memory clock operates at 1002MHz.
GeForce GTX 580 was the fastest single GFX of 2010, until it was dethroned by Radeon HD 7970 (2011) and now (2013) GeForce GTX TITAN.
With the release of GeForce 600 Series, even GeForce GTX 660 Ti offered better performance. This GFX needs to be paired with a good Quad Core CPU.

My Amd phenom II X 4 965 BE was bottle necking my GTX 660 .. I used to get 20 - 30 fps for some CPU dependent games like SC blacklist, Bttlefield 4, Assasins creed III.. Now i changed to intel i7 4770 and i get solid fps in all games now… CPU really matters for some games…

Nvidia is known for having very few microstutters even in sli. Nowadays with latest driers the stutters are unnoticable. For me, go for sli.

no go for a 780…..less power consumed by a boat load. Lower temps and of course the wait for efficient drivers to be released.
Sli 580s are old tech and very power hungry compared to a single 780

But usually at higher resolutions like yours, the gtx 580 performs better.

Not much, though. This isn't really a high resolution. Far Cry 3 max settings with 4x aa the difference is a whopping 0,7fps according to benchmarks. In BF3 the difference is 3fps. Then again in Crysis 3, 660 performs better by that same margin. That might be because of the extra vram, that game takes more than 1,5gb in high/very high settings especially when aa is used.

Yes you will especially in very demanding games.But why don't you take GTX660Ti or GTX670 since they are newer and cooler.Or something from AMD like 7950.

Thank for both, I get GeForce GTX 570 SOC, with a nice price and I see a great improvation from my old card, I am think that I get the same performance of the GTX660Ti and GTX 580.
