Awwww now we're all angwy bunny!

I was comparing relative cost...The price points are virtually the same...Some comprehension would've brought you to that conclusion

That being said, there's still more core for core performance in going for 1x590 as well as the ability to run 3x monitors.

Heat wise, it's also a better over solution because it's 2xPCB slots as opposed to 4.

So again, the OP's best solution, provided his situation, would be the GTX 590 as core for core + overall, it is the better card

I am not for the 6990 or 590 one way in this case, but in all honesty, on a single monitor... you have already made the investment, stick with your rig and just add another 570.

The 590 and 6990 are great performing cards, but they are both held back by air cooling.

Lets just say stock 590 is on par with stock 570 SLI. Picking up a used 570 in good condition and you are only spending another 300$. I don't see how you can go wrong. Very few titles touch upon the VRAM limit, you may have to roll with 2x/4x MSAA at 1920x1080 in a few titles like DA2 and Crysis 1. So I can't imagine it being any harder @ 2048 x 1152 on your monitor. That being said, if that is a big deal with you, you are going to need a little more VRAM maybe the 1.5GB of the 590, or the 2GB of the 6990 for more future proof, but for 99.9% of the available titles 1.3GB is enough, 1.5GB is extra, and 2GB is overkill (Single monitor setups.)

+1 I agree with RagingCain on this. Save money and just add another GTX 570. It is true GTX 590 is faster clock-for-clock than GTX 570 because simply it is 2 down-clocked GTX 580s -(512 CUDA vs. 480. 48 ROPS vs. 40 ROPS ...etc)- in one PCB. But don't forget that it is terribly downlocked to 607 MHz vs. 732 MHz. And because of that it is about as fast as GTX 570 SLI in most benchmarks (slightly slower/faster depends on the game). That extra 125 MHz on the 570 can help compensating the shortage in the CUDA cores and ROPS.
I know alot of 590s can do 730 MHz. But most people won't run those cards at that high OC 24/7 just for the sake of the over-loaded vrms. GTX 570s on average can do about 850-900 cores and alot of people run them like this for months and nothing happend to them.
