Is that with your CPU AND GPU? Or just one or other?
If on GPU, you should enable the -beta flag and get some more points.

Unfortunately either way my gaming performance wont be as good with the nvidia cards and the power consumption will be abysmal. So much so that I will actually have to upgrade my PSU most likely. I'm trying to decide if it is worth it or not. Or I have a friend that will sell me his GTS 450 for $60.
Personally I don't think you'll "notice" a whole lot of difference in gaming in any route you take. If I'm not mistaken, we're talking just a few fps drop if 570 or just a fps rise if 580. But I'd definitely go for the 580 if I could.
Power wise... I think the difference is 50 watts at most on load? Are you really already pushing that close already?
