Honestly ? I thought I would have had to upgrade by now but my 3 GB/580's still hold good framerate on every game on max settings. Unless something come's out that I really want to play for 200+ hrs. by then that kick's their ass, I'm not even sure if I'll upgrade next year.
It depends on what is considered 'good' to each person. I'm sure you still get 60 FPS in most games at 1080p, but 1080p is becoming obsolete for enthusiasts. Soon you'll likely want a 1440p monitor, or even 4k if you wait another year or so when they start coming out with 4k IPS or PLS panels. At that point, it would be necessary to upgrade. GTX 980 is THE best and most economical choice to make right now.
