but it is faster then a 590 by 20-30% on stock 590 vs stock mars2

its the same cores, only the mars 2 clocks are a bit above stock 580 clocks and 590 have them at 607MHZ so 8% diffrence doesnt sound right, a 590 bearly oc at all...
That's not true at all, either.

The drivers out right now are just as bad for the Mars2 as they are for the 590...

Hell, I have to underclock our Mars2 to get it to where I see 100% functionality.

Both 590's and the samples are OCing well @ 750-800mhz and in the 590 thread, it's well known that they OC well, at stock voltages into the 700mhz range.

So, in reality, it's even less of an "upgrade" considering the Mars2 ref, release, is OC'd to max out of the box...The 590, isn't.

It's an apples to oranges comparison...One is OC'd "stock", the other isn't.

The true value would be to SLI 2x580 3gbs especially for a surround setup...You'd even pay less for full water.

Get another GTX 590 or SLI 580's and get a better case + WC. If you have the money for such a card you will have the money for a full WC loop + another GTX 590.

So what is the cheapest way to get the performance and OC capability for around $1000USD or under?
I been eye'n the MARs II also! and have had my fair share of everyone saying there are cheaper better solutions. I would like to avoid water cooling each and every single vid card tho. I want to balance my build but I do like limited production parts!
Someone have a used one for sale? LOL

And no i dont think mars2 + gtx 590 is enough + oc 980x for an 1000w. you should be buying a nice 1200w PSU IMO.

But that's only my opinion.
