Hi guyz,
is it worth it in the long run to upgrade my video card?
I wana get of course the latest phantom model but it will be close to 600 euros when it arrives in europe. Should i go for the 570 or the 580 phantom?

both cards have the same lunch date price so I would wait and get the 680

I've found upgrading the video card is always not a bad idea. If you you are buying higher end cards, there will always be a buyer for your used equipment when you upgrade again.

I'm a little confused, though. The title of your post says 580 or 680, though the info you posted says 570 or 580?

wait a bit, 580 will be cheaper soon, so you dont have to spend mountains of money. 580 stills a moster video card vs 4850. When you go with the last tech you always have to pay more.

yes i thought about it but still i don't upgrade the computer every day.. i make once every 4-5 years an update.Right now i will go to ivory bridge from amd phenom 2. that sead i need advice only for the video card..should i go with high end so it keeps me with no upgrade for the next 4-5 years or the gtx 580 will be ok

The 680 is gonna be best for Long term build. unless you get a 3GB 580. the GTX 680 is a better option at this point. What CPU do you have?, i need to know if its a bottleneck
