So what is better than a 580? I'll tell you what: - Page 4

GTS 250?

That would be slightly faster than my 9800GT.

I feel an act of selfless service is required on your part, pm me for my shipping address.

980x is already bottle-necking the 470s SLI.
Last time I checked (a few months ago), going from 4.2 to 4.5 on the 980x, I get extra 2000 points in the GPU score in vantage.

Really? Awww...guess it's best left to if/when I build an SR2. No need for it right now then. :/

A GTX 580 cost about 20% more than most countries.

I wish it was tax free

Now that there are no games to compete with your setup, there's only one thing left to do!

..fold!
