GTX 580 with Core i7-975 @ 3.33GHz benchmarks at Ultra Quality quality settings

For the most part, the GTX 580 is still capable of playing modern games, but you would have to reduce settings to sustain those higher framerates. If keeping graphics quality settings closer to ultra or high is important, there are a few options for upgrades. It is worth noting that the GTX 580 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 1536 MB RAM, the GTX 580 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. It is important to know that GTX 580 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between GTX 580 and Intel Core i7-975 @ 3.33GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss.
