My System Specs

Default

I second turtletrax. Sell your 580 (I think you could get $250 - $300 for it) and go buy a new GTX680. Your system will consume less power (than with even just one 580) and run cooler and quieter. What's more, at 1920x1200 you'll be able to run anygame to come in the forseeable future.

If you're going to go that route, allow me to recommend the Galaxy GTX680GC. The heatsink shroud is made of aluminum, and looks just fantastic. More importantly, they have great customer service and an RMA center here in NA. I personally have one of these cards, and yes, while I'm sending it away for an RMA (could happen with any manufacturer's card), the process was quick and pain-free, made even easier by the fact that we have a Galaxy rep here on the forums.

You may be able to find it for cheaper somewhere other than NCIX, though. I didn't check anywhere else.
