At this current time and age this is the third best card on the market. The AMD 7970 and the MARS II being 1st and 2nd. This card can run any game that is on the market and many more into the future. Battlefield, Minecraft, Skyrim, Cyrsis all run with no lag, 60+ fps and ultra settings. The card was an easy install for my build, it has never failed me or not ran properly. The only problem I have with it is the price, for what you get it's kinda hard to argue about the price. It is $500 USD on most websites, sometimes you can find it lower. Also NVIDIA has over-clocked cards which price higher, along with ones with more VRAM. The GTX580 is a sleek, light, and power choice for any hardcore, gamer. One's who play Portal, Minecraft, Quake, and other games can simply buy a GTX550, AMD 5870, etc.
