Default NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 to be 20% faster than GTX 480 ?

20% is a realistic improvement. Indeed, if Nvidia meet the original target for GF100 - 512 SP @ 750 MHz, that is alone worth a 10%-12% increase. Combine this with an improved GDDR5 memory controller and faster speeds, some minor tweaks, perhaps an increased TMU count (following a similar ratio to GF104) and 20% improvement is achievable. The other possibility is an expansion of GF104 to 11 or 12 SM with a wider memory bus and ROPs - which gives 528 or 576 SP. (Though this would affect compute performance) Nvidia's main challenge will be greatly improving power consumption - considering GTX 480 already uses upto 300W, which is the PCI-SIG limit. The GTX 460 is far superior than GTX 480 for gaming performance per watt, and perhaps GF110 will incorporate optimizations included in GF104.

And how much cpu power is actually needed to get the full 100% gpu power?

Default

Core 2 Duo 3ghz+ for most games; to be safe, either Core i3/5 at 2.8-3.2ghz, or 2.6 Core i7 or equivalent. AMD's are good with X3 at 3Ghz.
in most cases you'll max out the GPU power before you hit a CPU wall, since you'll want to get the most from your new video card, this means enabling AA/AF and running at higher resolutions;
even with SLI/CF it's not very often that CPU becomes a bottleneck....
