Considering most are likely waiting for the 770 which should be priced alot lower than this card is at the moment.
In all honesty graphics cards have not really moved in price in years despite the costs going up, nvidia are first out of the door with the new Gpu series, AMD will be lucky to get a 2013 release if I was nvidia I'd be doing what they are now myself.
I don't intend to upgrade myself due to lack of space for multi monitor setup so will be holding off but those On a 580 would see a good 60-70% performance boost single card.

Looking forward to the GTX 770 review,

And yes - I'm calling anyone who would buy this card for 550 quidditch (over $800 in real money!) an idiot. Not because they're buying a specific brand but rather for their refusal to understand the concepts of "value" and/or "overclocking."
Their software is still better than AMD's (though that gap is actually closing) but other than that - oh, and PhysX, the biggest game-changing technology since Power over ESATA and Microsoft BOB...
