Thread Starter 
So what's best choice?

2x Any gtx 580.
2x MSI NGTX 580GTX Lighting 1536MB GDDR5 (Arkham edition)
2x MSI GTX 580 PCIE 1536MB TWIN FROZR II OC
1x GTX 590.
1x Asus mars.
1x HD 6990.

Or you have other offers for performance/price (Price shouldn't be higher than 1000-1500$).

Two 580s will last you a very long time, along with giving you the option of adding a third. I'd be using both of mine but they don't fit in my case lol!

There is a price point thing you have to remember. Very few cards out there will last "a few coming years" without the upgrade. For example, the 480 GTX which came out March last year, was taken down only a year later by the 580 GTX. Not only that, the 590 GTX took THAT down within months of its release. Yes, having the newest and the latest is going to be awesome, but you have to realize within a year or two down the road some bloke will spend less than a third of what you paid and get better performance than you. ()

Regardless, all your choices are fantastic. If i had to choose and I had all the money in the world, I'd pick up a single 590 GTX, because in about 6 months, I can afford another one. That means in about 6 months or less you have FOUR 580s in your rig. WIN!

Yes. Enough for at least a year or two. Can't say for sure though.

That's a wrong suggestion. The single 590 only has 1.5GB of VRAM for each GPU PLUS each of the 580s in it is underclocked and can not reach to same OC as two 580s in SLi. QuadSLi 590s is heavily limited by that VRAM and the underclocked 580 gpu in each. I stand by the recommendation of 2 x 3GB MSI Lightning Extremes.
