I do agree that you should stick with the 580. Good luck on the sale.
Definitely keep the 580, was worth the buy. quite frankly with the length and amount of time since the 480's first debuted last year, I don't think it put that much of a big hole in your wallet.
Think about it this way, if you happen to sell your 480 for $275 and you purchased the 580 for $390 you only really lost $115, around the same price if you measure with the EVGA step up program. Basically you rented a 480 for $115 or somewhat comparable to the EVGA step up program, either way you look at it, it's win/win.
