Is the GTX 580 really outdated grandpa tier now?

I'm still using a 560 gtx. So far everything I've wanted to play has run great (also have an i 2500k and 8 gigs of ram).

I want to move to a nice, quaint house in the suburbs with the T-Mobile girl and make lots of babies with her.

If you had a 560Ti and an ASRock motherboard, you would had the most generic and most recommended build from 2011.

I still have SLI 580s and they are fine, even for games I play at 5760 x 1080. I'm going to hold out another 12 - 18 months then I will build a new behemoth, this time custom liquid cooled.

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.


Why don't you throw out that Phenom II and get something else?

Still using a gtx 580. No need to upgrade it yet. Still maxes everything out right now. Waiting for gtx 780 peformance at around $300.

Meh. I use a GeForce 9600 and run modern games at a decent frame-rate and resolution on average to good settings. Sure I miss a handful of thrills and spills, but gameplay is King (And story comes in second). (I suspect I'll have to upgrade or replace my system in the next year for the games I want to play, that alright, it's six years old and hasn't has any sort of upgrade in five).

What is key, is if you feel you're missing out, and you can afford an expense for the sake of a few minor improvements. If you do, more power to you - Do as you will and the Devil take the rest. Money is there for a reason. Use it well.

I am still using a GTX 470 and don't plan on upgrading until Nvidia's next gen.

Because upgrades are expensive.

I am waiting for the same thing. We should see that by summer of next year at the latest.
