My System Specs

Default 7970 or GTX 680

Looking to upgrade my GTX580 and would rather not go SLI...

Looking for a 7970 or GTX 680, would prefer models with nicer cooling solutions as I hate fan noise!

Out of curiousity, why are you looking at upgrading the 580? These are still pretty beastly. When I looked at the performance difference for my system, I decided to skip this generation myself.

PM me some prices on those cards!

At 2560x1440 I need a more power, it's a toss up between grabbing another GTX580 or a newer card.

I've done business with him and will vouch for him.
