Default Re: CPU requirement for GTX 580?

I'm with everyone else.... I think your expectations were a little too high. You have to remember that a huge performance gain is rare when dealing with cards of the same generation. I think SLI is probably a much better way to distribute cash to get more performance when you're dealing in the 470+ range of cards
