is there anything wrong with it?

i ask coz iam myseklf going for 590 but majority told me to go 580 sli dont know why and most just tell me to skip 590?

They were burning up at stock speeds when released and there was zero OC room. I don't know if the VRMs have been improved or if there are aftermarket coolers, but I wouldn't touch one. You're better off buying another GTX580 and using SLI.

With some old drivers there were issues with the 590's not shutting off once they reached their temperature deadlines and hence frying.

Besides that i just think people realise how silly dual gpu cards are.
Hot, expensive, and can cause a lot of problems in some games.

Why bother?

The 590 is mainly for people that can't do dual cards, as dual cards will be cheaper and cooler and more overclockable.

Do you like small fires in your PC ? VRM's burn up, no OC, hot.

I wanted a 590 but the availability was awful, so I settled with a 580. Still a good choice.
