570 to 590 or 6990

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Ok. I'm going to either trade my EVGA GTX 570 SC + Cash or sell the 570 and do a full cash deal for either a 590 or 6990.

I see a few 6990's on the boards for $600. I think it's a great deal, but do you think I should go for it or stick with NVIDIA and go for the 590?

I'm kind of torn. I've always had NVIDIA cards and don't know much about ATI driver stability.

Why not go 570 SLI? Overclocked they are more powerful than a 590 or 6990. It would also be the cheapest option.

Even stock 570 SLI is comparable to those cards. They will also run cooler/quieter, and provide higher OC potential if you space them properly.

I would agree going SLI 570 would be the best route and less of a buyers remorse whenever Kepler comes out early next year and you have the urge to upgrade again.

The problem with that is I never keep GPU's for years. If I do that I'll have to figure out how to get rid of 2x 570 in the future where if I get the 6990 or 590 I can just get a 2nd one for quad in the future.

Haha, exactly.

I really doubt that SLI 570s would not be able to handle any game thrown at them, especially ones that come in the future.

I still think the best option is to SLI 570s even though you don't keep graphics cards for more than a year.

If you do it this way you can still buy the new Keplers that come out next year and I think it will be much more overall bang for your buck than going to 590 or 6990.

Plus, dealing off 2 570's shouldn't be that tough when the next gen cards come around.

Great advice. +Rep.

It looks like I'll just be buying another EVGA GTX 570 SC.

they wont be more powerful than 590. 590 is overclockable too. and if you think it will burn - you're just dont know anything about 590

Oh really? Mind posting your 3DMark11 score to back that up? Here is mine:

I am genuinely interested to see if an aircooled 590 can beat that score.
