I'm in the same problem than you... i wanted to change my GTX295 but... the problem is that the GTX295 was a great card with a great lifespan... and for the price it costed, now you can get a GTX580. But at the same time, i think 500EUR for a single gpu is a damn expensive price! ehehhe

So... let me know what's your decision. I was thinking on going GTX570

I think your right pedros, the GTX295 has had a much longer lifespan that it's predecessors, the only thing lacking is DX11 support. I think I shall hold on to this card given the performance it still delivers. It's pretty good that a video card like this can still deliver the goods from two generations ago.
