Trust me, this wouldn't normally be the case for me but after all the damn driver/stuttering issues my 6950 has given me, I truely give up on this Generation of ATI. And it is not for lack of trying. The 6850's (two builds done with them) have given me so many problems with driver issues. I've had enough, this is perfect for my AMD build.

Depends on the Vendor. Pricing for the 580 varies but is still somewhat higher (around $65 higher) for a card that should in theory beat it.

For myself? Thats a perfect situation.

Ridiculous price! That is just getting stupid how over-priced that card is! The sad thing is that many 'under-educated' people will buy the card not knowing that they are just getting SLI GTX 460 for an extra $110.

Looks like the 2win should actually be called the 2FAIL. From the looks of this the card will not work w/o an SLI motherboard. Meaning it is completely worthless.
