Personally I think there should be a lawsuit for the entire 400 series! I think it is crap that Nvidia released the 470 and then improved the cards as they went backwards. I think it is BS that 2 months after I spent my hard earned money on what I thought to be second from the top they release 500 series. Don't give me the crap about welcome to the computer world because in the computer world they don't go to an entire new series in a matter of months. Absolute $%^&!

Does anybody know what the PSU specs are for a 580?

Just wondering if mine is up to it?

We have a GTX 580 review that explains that.

Wont be getting this silly Fermi gtx4xx re-release.
I'll be waiting for a Kepler to see how it compares to AMDs offering.

5xx series is not new series.. it's the same series (Fermi or NV60) with a different name.
The 'new series' will be Kepler (NV65) during sometime next year and the proper next generation comes in 2013 (NV70)..

And yes, I hate the fact that nvidia doesn't use NVxx naming anymore.

Until I have a program that does something useful that can leverage the processing power, I am going to stick with my GeForce GTS 250. It does everything that I need at this point.

But you already can.
I haven't found many games which I can run with very high fps with 32xSSAA and 16AF (32AA basically makes that 512AF.)..

I wonder if i was to get the GTX 580 would my cpu be a bottleneck at stock settings of 2.66GHz?

What about at its current 3.6GHz? ...... Just wondering what a recommended minimum cpu speed would be to get the best out of the 580?

A 3.6GHz high end CPU will not bottleneck a GTX 580, dude.
