Default gtx 570 vs. gtx 580

Cheapest 580 on newegg is $385 after rebates and promo codes: Newegg.com - Galaxy 58NLH5HS3PXZ GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Cheapest 570 is $275 after rebates: Newegg.com - PNY VCGGTX570XPB GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

It comes down to whether or not you think you need the extra performance. However, if you take the ratios of price to fps in almost any given title, the 570 is a better deal.

well you could always put two 570s together in sli. that would outrun the 580 by about a mile. but then the price would go above the 500 mark. its best to go with the 570.
