Are the Older cards still good?

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?
