590 or 2x580 on sli?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was worried 2 580ies would get too hot. I have a pretty small motherboard so they're going to be sticking right next to each other.


Would I be better off with a 590? If so, what are my cooling and silencing options?

The 590 will run cooler and quieter* if the 580's are directly stacked, but the two 580's will have better performance.

*Depends on set fan speed.

Two GTX 580's would be better performance wise, but more expensive than buying just one GTX 590. If you have adequate cooling for two GTX 580's, then get'em!
