I love mine, if that counts for anything.

I came from a 5750, so I mean, it was worlds apart. Everything is better in my new rig, and the highlight for me is probably the OC'd 580.

edit: I would go with a Twin Frozr II or an EVGA 580DS if you can, strictly for temperature sake. It's only a marginal difference in price (I believe the Twin Frozr is the same price?) for 5-8c difference in temps.

It's reference design, so its going to be the same as any other GTX 580 (which are awesome, run cool and quiet, good overclocking headroom) - if it were me, I would spend the extra couple $$ and get the GIGABYTE GV-N580UD-15I GeForce GTX 580

It will overclock better and run a bit cooler - just my 2 cents

I will probably get this card, I have always been a big fan of EVGA.

I'm building my new rig at newegg and I have chosen EVGA gtx 580.

What do you think?
It has good reviews though,

Thank you
Judging by your name, I'm assuming you plan on buying a Sandy Bridge. If you buy it at Superbiiz and use the discount code, you'll save yourself $25. As far as the GTX580, also take a look around for deals on the 6970. I think you'd be happy with either and they're fairly close if you have pair 'em.

Temps aren't bad on the reference version and it's easier to find waterblocks for them if you ever want to watercool down the road compared to non-references.

I have 580 SLI and have yet to see temps above 82 when benching @ 900MHz.

As a single card it never peaked 67C. This is with a 1% fan/ 1*C fan profile.

Fan doesn't really get loud until over 75*C.

From what I've seen I think a 1.5GB 580 is a sweet spot, granted $500 is quite a bit of money.

I went from an EVGA 8800GT to that very EVGA GTX 580. Reason I went with EVGA again is because of the lifetime warranty. I don't cycle though gpu cards as often as others.

Running EVGA 580's in SLI as well. I love them.

I went from GTX260's to these. Haven't overclocked them yet beyond what EVGA oc'd them to, but they've taken everything I've thrown at them and asked for more.
