Look, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power must be wielded by a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony! I mean, if I went 'round, saying I was emperor, just because some moistened bink threw a sword at me, they'd lock me away ?!?

And all sillyness aside ... that's some good advice SadS. 480>580 is only a worthy upgrade if you REALLY have money burning a hole in you pocket and are extremely sensitive to noise. In addition to this ^^^ idea, you could upgrade to SLI 480's for only a tiny bit more, run them at stock (which isn't THAT hot/loud), and blow the doors off a single 580.

I went from 2 GTX480's to 2 GTX580's and I couldnt be happier. My 480's were loud, hot, and overclocked like crap. Needless to say they got sent to the garage to fold in the cold.

If you have the money then by all means go for it, if not then dont do it. Your not really giving us much to go on here for options and reasons.

And that, my liege, is how we know the Earth to be banana shaped.
