I'd stick with the 560's if you're not having any micro stutter issues

If I was in your shoes, I'd do the trade. The higher end cards seem to hold their value a bit better than the mid range ones. Also, as the second last poster noted, you can still add another 580 in the future when prices drop, or sell it off at a decent price and pick up a 670/680 when they arrive.

I agree. One 580 should be enough for almost anything you're gonna play and it will likely (IMO) hold it's value much better.

Actually the top cards are always the one that lose the most value over time.

GTX 580 release price was $500, soon it be under $400 and a few more months it be under $300.

A good example would be a used gtx 480 $200 vs a gtx 460 1gb $100 30% performance margin, double the price. Giving multiple gpu solutions extremely good value.

And if he does the trade and waits for those 580's to drop to the $300 range he can have SLI 580's for cheaper without having to sell both of his 560Ti's and buy 2 580's... idk I say it's worth it but it's all opinion.

I agree. My vote is for the GTX 580.

Surprised no one asked the obvious question....what Res you play on now and what Res are you planning for? Really, that the factor that should help you decide....(if your planning on 1920 x 1200 or higher get the 580 with plans to get another)...if your Res is standard 1080 or lower keep the 560ti's

also the Aftermarket Cooler for the 580 is a waste...imo they dont run hot enough to require it (warmest I see is 75C fans at 78%...in GPU world on air thats no biggie), all that Cooler will do is keep the heat in your case (stock set-up expels the heat out the rear).....
