Get the 570. Great price if you actually get the rebates.

The price is exactly the way it is listed. The reason why I'm considering this is because the gtx 580 is usually $500

I crank every detail with max AA and AA transparency and stay well beyond 60fps at 1080p with 2 580s. One 580 by itself is great. I would go for the single best video card you can get within your budget. $400 is a great deal for that 580 card. I'd recommend that.

the gtx 570 will give you exceptional performance, the gtx 580 has relatively poor price/performance. only go for the 580 if you are a graphics whore and/or you like to waste your money.

Both cards aren't that great at overclocking and someone mentioned about the price/ performance ratio of gtx 580. It's $100 off making it only $400 what more can you ask for?

the gtx 570 is also $70 off. you asked if the gtx 580 is worth the extra $120 or about 40% cost increase. you will get nowhere near a 40% improvement in performance.

+1 - gtx 570 is well worth the 300 bux. 40% increased cost for 10% increased performance for the 580.....
