Your only options for a worthwhile upgrade are


GTX 780
R9 290
R9 290X
GTX 780 Ti ( This being the best option @$699)

If you haven't had any issues with SLI you could also buy two 770's. They would be even faster than one 780 ti

Id personaly prefer a single card... had a couple of issues with sli.... also cards are about 100 bucks more expensive here so 780 ti and 770 sli are a bit pricey, im kinda thinking of an r9 290, how bad is the stock cooler? really as bad as people say?

Well, it gets pretty loud under load, but there are 290's with custom coolers now, for example by asus or sapphire

how big of an upgrade would a 780 be over 2 580?

They are equally good in games, the 290 score slightly better scores in benchmarks like 3dmark firestrike
