To begin with, its not called Asus Mars gtx 590. Its called ASUS MARS II 580x2. Of course the MARS II will be better than the lightning, but it will probably have a price tag of around $1000. It will not have any sli issues.

Getting a dual-gpu card won't cause anymore problems than with any other multi-card setup as far as I'm concerned. With that being said, what resolution do you plan on gaming at?

If you have the $$$ to swing the MARS II go for it! But get at least 3gb for higher resolutions like yours.

NO.
Your choosing between the best 580 and the best 590. The 590 will perform better, but its priced close to 1000$ and will probably be more cause of the demand and limited run.
I suggest getting 2x 580 lightning XE and sli them. Approx same price, maybe more or less, BUT performance is much better than MARS and will most definitely oc more.

If you dont want to pay extra, just get 2x 580 lightning and still will be better than MARS .
