Is the GTX 580 really outdated grandpa tier now?

It seems like I just got it...

16GB is still passable right?

This is what happens when you stop paying attention for awhile...

I still run a 570. I've yet to play a game I can't max out or at least play on high. No need to upgrade unless you're running into performance issues.

Crysis 3 I couldn't get reliably above low.

Everything else yeah maxed out.

16GB of RAM is still currently overkill so far.

I'm running a GTX 560 and I could run Crysis 3 very well on medium-high. No idea what your CPU is however.

The GTX 580 hasn't aged very well, so I'd say yeah, somewhat.

Still using 480.

580 feels a little aged. I'd say the big problem is the lack of vram.

Still, runs everything i throw at it on high, including BF4.

My big bottleneck is the phenom II.

I just sold my 580's just a few weeks ago on Ebay. They truly haven't aged well. I picked up both my 7950 sapphire vapor x and 7970 sapphire ghz edition dual x for 400 brand new off Ebay. Couldn't be any more happier with this setup then when i had sli 580's.
