'll 2x graphic cards improve performance more than 1x?
You will see an improvement in performance yes. but for 1 monitor you can probably be fine with just 1 card. Although you'll need two to max bf3 and probably newer games that come out.

I hate the "waiters". Yes kepler will be better. It will also be way more expensive. You want 2 lightnings ? Go get em bro. More power to you.
Hates a strong word. That was wrong. I just think its silly.

The 590 is a complete jip. And the 580's price/performance is pretty laughable. If you can digest not playing Skyrim and BF3(and other some-what demanding games expected) for another 5 months or so, just wait for Keplar.
IMHO, for 1920 resolution, the best bang-for-buck setup around is SLI GTX470's, IF you can find them at a good price, which seems to happen pretty often lately.

470's are only about 4-6% slower than GTX570's when clocked the same, as the 570's only architectural advantage in terms of perf lies in having about 7% more 'hardware' (448 shaders vs. 480 shaders, 56 vs 60 texture units, 14 vs 15 Tess units).

In fairness, GTX570's reach a higher max clocks, on average about 100MHz or around 15% higher than 470's, so all told at max OC's you're looking around 15-20% better perf (and lower heat/noise, admittedly) from 570's ... which is JUST enough + FPS to notice w/the naked eye ... BUT ... I've seen GTX470's going in the $150 price range on occasion, so at that kind of price, there's nothing really that competes with a 470

My 470's at their max OC's (845/1800) are only 15-20% slower than SLI GTX580's at stock. If you can find a really good deal on 470's, they destroy any other setup for 1920 resolution in terms of bang/buck. Although they are admittedly a bit hot/loud unless you get aftermarket cooling on 'em.

Just throwing it out there ... 470's are still worth considering if you see a good deal on 'em, and price is a factor for you. I'm telling ya, the things are no joke ... this score will beat (stock) SLI 570's, GTX590, and xfire 6970's

Oh, and 3 of 'em, if you have the board, high-airflow case, and PSU to support them, will handily defeat SLI 580's in 95% of cases, at a far lower price ... and give you less microstutter to boot




Lastly, the word is 'gyp', short for 'gypsy' ... just so you know

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$).
On your list:

First - MSI NGTX 580GTX Lighting 1536MB SLI

Second - GTX 580 1.5GB SLI

Not on your list....

ANY GTX 580 3.0GB SLI. Most VRAM of any card offered. Don't really need it though on one 1920x1200 120Hz monitor.

IF your going to get a 120Hz monitor for 3D Vision, Nvidia is the way to go hands down. 3D vision rendering on a hardware level.

Wow, that's crazy ... at those prices, the 580 is far better deal ... people are finding 470's right now at $150-ish in the States, so ... that's why I suggest people still consider them ATM.

I still totally love my 470 SLI setup ... they destroy everything I throw at them, maxed out at 1200p res w/ at least 4xAA (although I have to turn off ADoF in Metro, that's the ONLY compromise I've ever had to make). Haven't even considered upgrading as there's nothing out there that'll give me significantly higher max playable settings at this res.

I've merged your two threads Fatalas. In the future please don't make a new thread just to talk about the same thing ...

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!
four 570s....not 580s
