Regardless, I'm sure there are people out there who would purchase two 7970's to play at 1920x1080, in order to use the highest graphical settings possible.
To many variables to make blanket advice. In general I think a 580 (or 7970) is overkill at 1080P, unless you're doing 3d.
OTOH, if you're buying a long term card it could make sense. (and I mean 2 years+)
High end graphics should be matched to more demanding displays or they're largely wasted.
