My System Specs

Default

I've been running 580's (Evga) since there release and have not looked back, great Cards and can be found for around $475 new (I sold one for $400), amazing performance and great thermals (rarely hit 75c) running Sli on 2560x1440, TriSli was too much (yes even for me), IMO the 580's are still the best choice for performance /thermals.
Obviously 1920x1080 won't need the poop my Res requires.

You certainly don't require 3GB VRAM, 1.5GB is ample @1080.

Good luck n was mentioned, don't expect to see GTX 6xx series till perhaps 2nd 1/4 2012, look for Evga GTX 580 Classifieds though ;)
