I am PC illiterate.

What are the differences between the older cards that are the same specs as some of the newer cards?

I'm asking because I can get a GTS 500 series for alot let than I can get the GTX 660s and up for. The specs look the same to me except for some small bit rates and Open GL differences

Is this still a viable card?

Yes, that is still a very good GPU and it will play most games quite well. Of course, that one is out of stock at Newegg.

The 580 and 660 are comparable in performance as shown here:
