You must have some deep pockets then, my friend.
Care to share some of the wealth?

6990 + 6970 imo. I just heard it scales better like that. I think my next minor upgrade will be to add a 6970 to this 6990

Yeah, buy the 590 and watch your card die on stock settings.

Nvidia OCP for the 590 is terrible, and effective. It's impossible right now to get around it. But with the AUSUM BIOS switch, the 6990 doesn't have any PowerRune limit. So with Nvidia, they beg you NOT to OC your 590, but with AMD, they beg you to OC it.

Major difference.

Don't listen to the guys with Nvidia cards in their signature. You made the right choice. The 6990 is a much better card, everyone knows that now. So don't even think about it anymore. Don't listen to the nvidia loyalists. With 2 PCIe slots only, then nothing is faster then 2X6990.

It's really easy to watercool a 6990. Koolance and EK are already selling great blocks, and the Swiftech block is coming out in a couple of days. Come see us in the 6990 Club. Alot of owners did watercool for the first time. It's not that hard.

And watercooled, the 6990 is cool and silent. Fastest single card on the planet.

And yes 2X6990 will be able to drive 3X30'' LCD.

hope this helps u
Wasn't very hard actually, but it will cost you a grip. However, warning ppl about money when their sig rig consists of a 980x already and saving on a wc rig between 2 blocks and 4 blocks... lol wut?
