    Page File & Gaming Performance w/ SSD

    So I'm looking for an NVidia card [personal decision, sorry AMD boys] for modern gaming, specifically BF3. I game at 1920x1080 and plan to have an ivy-bridge i5. Other factors being equal, should I spring for the current-gen GTX660 or the last-gen GTX580? Noise and power consumption are...
