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.

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.

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.
