Thats your answer then. Stick with your GTX580 for a while longer then if youre struggling to come up with an extra £100.

He is right , you should stick with the 580 and than get the 670 when you completly can, hopefully the price will have dropped ,

I meant finding the £100 to upgrade to GTX 670 is do-able but i cant afford anything else at the moment so not considering the GTX 680 etc or a second GTX 580 for now as id need to find the full cost for one.

Oh ok. if you can afford the 399$ price range, the 670 is really your best option in the new gen card.
Of course you could get a bit more power with a sli/Cfx gpu config , but you would have issue with it.

Money aside....Is the performance gain worth it and is 2GB VRAM going to see me through most of this year better than a GTX 580 with 1.5GB? Are there better cards in the pipeline this year such as a GTX 670 ti etc or have those been scrapped?

Again, if scraping up an extra £100 is "doable" you should still stick with the GTX580 cause obviously money is tight. In that case, the performance pickup wont be worth it dollar for dollar.

Money aside though, yes it would be worth it.

Just keep your GTX580 and start saving up money. Youve got enough GPU horsepower to handle anything right now and itll hold you til you can save up enough to get either a 2nd GTX580 or a GTX680. If youre gonna have to scrape and save to get a card when youve got a capable one already, you might as well scrape and save a little longer so you can get the best.

seems like a decent upgrade in fps. also, consumes less power and overclocks higher. if you have the money and really want to, go for it.
