Why not those shoes ?? Just OC GTX480..

My stock cooled GTX480 OC'd @ 850/1025 w/ 1075mV outperforms a GTX580 @ STOCK by 100 Pts in Graphic score 3DMark 11..

Now seriously I would recommend a SSD..

CHEERS..

Once again, Why are you "Upgrading" To a gtx580 from a gtx 480 this is retarded....Upgrade your powersupply and get two gtx 480's..It doesnt make sense why you would do all this work for 5-10% improvement when you can for a low price get a second gtx 480 and gain 90-100% improvement if you just upgrade the powersupply and then wait till something actually makes your gtx480 slow...

CHEERS..
Me 480 doesn't budge above 800 even with 1.125V

Also I want the comparative silence of the 580.

I would get a Watercooling set up or a SSD no need for GTX580 with your specs... If you want a 580 go ahead but more 10fps or less fps in this case is the same thing... just to say you have more fps cause you do not suffer of slowdowns with a 480... With WC you solve the noise/temp issue...

You will pay extra 100$ just for more silent card??

LoL now I know why people say that silence is golden..

And I'm 99% sure that your PSU can hold GTX480 SLI setup..

I have CM Real Power M620 with only 520W of power on 12+ rail (43A) and it runs my OC'd system with easy (Furmark 20min, OCCT PSU test etc)..

So your PSU has 250W more on 12+ rail and certanly can put out up to 850W (if needed) without any issues and still operate above 80% efficiency..

So I would recommend for real gaming experience boost get 2nd GTX480 and be happy..

Or get SSD..

CHEERS..

Other solutions would be much sadder, and should require a higher level of consideration from you.

C300 for sure. Raid is nowhere near as good as an SSD for your OS/app drive. Raid is nice for storage drives though.
