An HD5970 + x1 HD5850 (Called Tri-Fire) would be better than both the HD6990 and GTX590, in DX9 and DX10.

However, in heavy DX11 games, I am sure the HD6990 and GTX590 will perform better.

I'd go with the 6990. Scaling with the 58XX series was horrible, and you'd only get slightly better performance than the 6990. I was on a 5870 CF setup and this setup I have no blows it out of the water.

Just go with the 6990 for now, and pick up a 6970 when they drop in price.

Scaling on the 58** series is actually very good. I personaly get over 90% scaling in games that support crossfire.
