Default Re: 285 upgrade to 580: benchmarking

I'm thinking of upgrading to the 580 if I can muster the funds. Going from an 8800GTX to a GTX 580 ought to be interesting.

Just came and visit forum after 2 years. I still have 8800 GTX. Can I still upgrade to 580 with the motherboard I bought on year 2007?

Thanks!

As long as your power supply can handle it, you should be able to.
