I have 2 GTX580 in SLI. Can I buy a GTX590?

I have 2 GTX580 in SLI. Can I buy one more GTX590?
Will these 3 cards run in 4-way SLI?

No. Unlike AMD where 6970 + 6990 will work, for NVIDIA you can't mix and match cards of the same series. But why would you need it anyway, are 2 GTX 580s not enough?

Nah bro won't work. Either sell the 580s and get two 590s or buy two more 580s.

Also if you could your 580s would be downclocked to run at the same speed as the 590 which is alot lower.

No can't mix them, Razi3l is right.

Secondly, your GTX 580 SLI is enough GPU to last three to four years of gaming, why would you need more? On one card alone I'm playing Metro 2033, Crysis and Crysis 2 easily and I've got them maxed out with highest details and AA maxed as well.

Lastly, when posting, you should have your system specs listed. Complete the BIO form so everyone can see what your running. PSU, CPU, GPU, are the most key for anyone else to give advice.

The GTX 580 in SLI beat the one GTX 590 which are two watered down 580's for greater performance. Your GTX 580 SLI will over clock way higher than the GTX 590 dual GPU even further widening the gap.

If you want to absolutely have another card then go with GTX 580 TRI SLI. Keep in mind that third card gets less scaling performance than the second in SLI. So the returns on that third card diminishes as opposed to the second in just SLI.

Make sense? Again why add a third?

I don't think any game out there could use up all 4 gpus. I know a guy who uses 4 way 580s and MSI AB shows his GPU usage fluctuates around 50-60% each core, which is much smaller than 3 gpus with 100% usage.

If you do Surround Gaming those 4 GPU's get eaten up very quickly, if he does surround gaming and they are 50 - 60% that means that he has a CPU bottleneck

Obviously as the posters above have said, you can't mix and match - grab a 3rd 580 or grab two and do it that way as long as you're running higher than 1920 x 1080/1200.
