So....apparently my GTX580 is "good but dated". Should I upgrade?

I do not see a real point in upgrading yet. Wait a year so you can see what AMD has in store and hopefully Nvidia will price accordingly with their 800 series.

Read the recommended requirements on all the games out you currently want to play. Buy the best one, and the next time you need a new card you'd probably save money.

I would wait one more year. The 580 is dated but not outclassed yet, unless you plan to sell it for cash.

Personally I'm waiting for the GTX 880 to come out, which should be in around half a year. It's estimated to cost the same (if not a little less) than a 780 costs now, and should be a much better upgrade.

Get 4 Titans if money's such a non-issue.

Who told you that it's good but dated? My 570 is still very solid, so your 580 should work very well if you're willing to sometimes lower some SSAO or tessellation.
