@ShortySmalls I seriously doubt I'll be needing 3GB Vram. By the time I get the monitor(s) that need that much the 580 will be eons old

@adridu59 Another option I was considering. Whats the kind of thing you would recommend? I could use it in a HTPC after I guess :S

I don't get your question...

I recommend you to buy an i5 2500k and use the graphics integrated into the i5.
Not sure if you're aware of it, but the new Intel Sandy Bridge processors as well as AMD Llano series feature a GPU directly integrated onto the processor.
That's why the Sandy Bridge motherboard have a DVI and/or HDMI port.

With these processor for lightweights tasks you do not have to buy any GPU.

Hope this helps

Yeah I get that but it won't run any games

When you said an old card I thought you meant from a previous series

You got to think of this way when getting GPU. My other friend is still running 8800 GTX SLI on today games DX9. He'll need upgrade if he wants to see DX11 features. Or DX11 games only. Otherwise he is still capable to run Crysis 2, Metro 2033 in DX9 at high framerate.

On the market right now, a lot of games still run in DX9 + extended to DX10 or 11 supported. Perphaps now you won't see DX10 anyways. Either DX9 + DX11 or just DX11 only.

Having a HD6000 or GF500 series with high tesselation support is decent enough for the next 2-3 years+ Unless games advanced into some DX12.

I don't have the references on this, but I'm sure the percentage of DX11 games on the market has just started last year and the numbers are still relatively small comparing to DX9. DX10 is almost done for.

The HD7000 would run a bit faster, less heat ,less power usage. Base features offer in DX11 is the same. Probably better performance in Tesselations and MLAA (whatever that spells). You can boost it or keep up the performance by going SLI or Crossfire. At the end your card maybe just more heat and power usage compare to HD7000.
