side note: playing Bloodstone @ 5940 x 1080 (bezel corrected 5760x1080) all settings full 2x AA, temps are wicked (70/68) 580s are what the 480s should have been.

...and your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberry!

IMO the difference between a GTX580 and your GTX480 is not worth spending $600 on.

Wait for Kepler.

Oh and going to a 580 is a huge sidegrade, just overclock and it will match it/beat it
