You will always be stuck with this thought every 6 months when something else better is released and you'll never be satisfied, you got what was the best single GPU when you bought it which will always be worth something for longer than lower end cards, even in a years time these cards will still go for a decent resale price.
The best way to think about it is prices of cards are always dropping which means you can get another 580 for cheaper in the not so distant future which will blow the 7970 away and then maybe in another 1-3 years depending on when you start feeling your not hitting the performance you want, you could, sell both of your 580's and be not far off buying the best single card of that time..... and then repeat the process
Once you've got one or two of best high end cards of a decent generation, you've got good trading piece to keep getting the best cards of future generations without taking a big financial plunge, but as always make sure the the upgrade is worth it and will do all that you want
Enjoy your bloody amazing card godamn it
