Yep, power supply is about 5 months old and powers my neighbors 570 fine. The card also crashed in his system..

It's actually been a slow death. It **** the bed on my a while ago and before I replaced it I tried baking it and it came back to life. Since then I knew it was on its last legs but over the past week the driver crashes have been coming more frequently until now it crashes in windows all the time.

That sucks.

If you're unsure whether you want to grab another 580, stick with the 260 for now and when the 7970 comes out and does seem good, go for it. (not that it sucks, but it's close to being released)
It's like when my brother's 9800GT died and I had to pass my 260 to him.. Had nothing but to buy a new video card for myself kekeke.

I've never had a single driver issue and I've owned cards from both camps for nearly eternity. The 7970 is clearly the faster card and they're priced equally, so I can't even imagine considering a GTX580. The only reason I ever bought mine was because I got it Open Box for cheap and it even came with a $85 cooler.

Right I just can't see spending the same amount on something that is clearly worse. But since I originally started this I found out about the 260 so now it is between the 7970 or 590... But at this point I'm leaning hard towards the 79

If money is a problem the gtx 580 is still fine. You just have to get it used. I just bought one with a 3 year warranty still on it for 350 usd shipped. (1.5g EVGA SC edition.) The market is getting soft. Especially with the recent reviews of the 7970. But if money isnt a problem just wait till January 9th. Not much longer. wink.gif


There are people selling gtx 580s on here with the lifetime warranty still on them for 400.00 usd.

Lifetime for whom? Are you counting on being able to contact someone months/years after a purchase and hoping they'll RMA it for you? No thanks. Gimme an MSI or Asus warranty tied to the card for 3 years! thumb.gif I'd be willing to bet that a decent % of phone numbers or addresses you get from a seller today wouldn't even be valid a year or so from now. There are a lot of apartment dwellers, basement dwellers, and college kids around and they're not the most stable part of the population as far as residences go.

^Palit too.

My 580s all failed with bcc 116 after a power failure. Thankfully, MSI and Palit both are honoring it (3 year warranty) after I explained the situation. Palit is even honoring it without me providing proof of purchase.

So from most of these reviews the 590 is what 20-30% faster than the 7970?
