  1. Best answer
    The 7970 is roughly 30% more performance than the GTX 580. You would be better off buying a new HD 7870 Myst Edition for the same price as what your friend is offering the GTX 580 and it would provide slightly better performance than the GTX 580. It is up to you as to whether you want to spend the extra $180 for the increased performance.

  2. Yeah, he was saying something about how its a "rare special edition" or something, I'm just gonna stay with the 7970. Thank you.
