So my GTX 580 has died on me and I was thinking of upgrading anyway so I was wondering what is considered the current best value vs performance on graphics cards?

I don't know whether i should upgrade other areas too, do any of my specs look like they need upgrading to cope with the latest games:

1536MB EVGA GTX 580 SC, 797MHz GPU 512 Cores, 4050MHz GDDR5
Intel Core i7 2600K, 3.4Ghz, Quad Core, 8Mb Cache, Hyperthreading
16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance - DDR3 1600Mhz
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P - Intel Z68
650W Corsair HX Series, Modular

Any suggestions as to what I should upgrade to?

Pretty much, yes.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.
