OH SNAP!

Can't wait to see how nVidia responds to this, lol.

6990 hit higher scores in 3dmark. GTX590 does better in heaven bench and heavy tessellation. Neither is King IMO. I wouldn't buy either one of these dual GPU science projects. Drivers/Game support is shit.

460 sli or 6970 crossfire and youll be fine, even at highest res with all these console ports nowadays.

i just downgraded from a 6970 to a single 460gtx cause i dont need the extra power.

sad thing about the 590 is...
it blows up way too often ,from what ive heard lol

I wouldnt touch the 6990 with a carbon fibre barge pole because its noisey as hell.

I'm more than happy with my 580, I really can't imagine needing more power unless you're running 2560x1600 or surround 3D.

Yup. This GTX580 is a beast of a GPU and should be good for another few years. I havent played a game that this GTX580 struggles with. Its smoother than the GTX470 SLI was.

In all honesty, unless you're after 120fps @ 1920x1080, 2560x1600 or surround, a GTX 560 is more than enough for your needs at the moment. Even Crysis 2 turned out to be a mediocre console port (with DX11 support coming sometime never) - games just don't need the extra horsepower at the moment.

I really doubt I'll feel the need to upgrade before the GTX670 comes along (if then). I know ATI fanboys diss TWIMTBP, but we really need to see more things like this to bully devs into exploiting the beige box's full potential...
