OP isn't asking about value for money
This thread is about which card he should get. And the answer is very simple, the GTX580. How can you argue with the fastest single GPU card on the planet?
If the OP wants to be as future proof as possible and stick to single GPU solution, then the 580 is the card you want.
As someone else said, the 580 is the best card I have ever owned. She overclocks extremely well, runs pretty much every game smooth as butter and I couldn't be happier that I got a 580.
My friend got 570 SLI and asked me why I got a 580 over 570 SLI and my answer was someting along the lines of; "I prefer single GPU solutions, so the 580 was a no brainer. And even if I wanted 2 GPU's, I can always get another 580 and 580 SLI > 570 SLI"
Sure, the 580 costs more, but thats because it is the fastest single GPU card on the market.
So from a 580 owner, get the 580. You will not be dissapointed!
