The 580 and 6970 and blah blah blah have really high thermals, thats because the only performance increase you can get on the 40nm cards are made really hot cards with larger chips
... I totally agree with you regarding thermal performance, and I was actually thinking to do the same (wait till the new GPUs based on 28nm technology are out) but I can't wait for long ...
