With this already said - get a GTX590.

They are the dog's bollocks currently, and when you need to upgrade in the future, you can just get another GTX 590 and SLI.

The GTX 590 is more future-proofable IMO.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. I've ordered the GTX 590 but there is still time to cancel.

Either way, I figure if I overclock to about 700MHz on the core I might make up the difference between 570 SLI and a stock 590.

I would go with the 570's option.. But that's just me.

Because if you decide you want to go water, you can OC those 570's and get more performance out of them. AND it'll be cool and quiet.

Edit - Just saw you ordered the 590, enjoy your card! smile.gif but seriously, you couldn't go wrong either way you went. I have a single 580 and it does the job just fine, so your 590 should suit your needs for a long time. thumb.gif

Just stick with the 590.

In benchmarks i have been looking at recently, they are always basically 15 fps ahead (if not more) of the 580 in mostly all games.

If price is no issue, a 590. the 590 will equal the performance [at stock] and run a bit cooler.

TBH it's really up to you. both routes get you to the same destination, just in slightly different manners

Answering your questions:-
1 and 2) GTX570 SLI should be faster than a GTX590 when its 1280MB VRAM is not limiting. And for 1080p, this VRAM issue should not happen often, if at all. For an example, my GTX570s do not have VRAM issue with BF3.

3) I am not sure but I suppose they are just about the same.

4) As far as thermal consideration inside a 600T with side window, I would rather have traditional cooling GTX570 SLI because:-

a. See diagram 1 below. GTX590 exhausts heat via its front and rear. Exhausting via its rear poses no problem. However, exhausting via its front poses a big challenge. This basically eliminates the fresh air supply route to the card's intake fan from the case front fan in order to avoid direct air path crossing.

Usually this problem can be solved by using a side panel fan. Unfortunately, your 600T has a side window, meaning no side panel fan. This means, fresh air supply is a big challenge to a GTX590's central intake fan.

b. Using two EVGA GTX570 HD SC (012-P3-1573-AR) will bring the same problem as they will exhaust heat via their front too.

c. See diagram 2 below. Using two EVGA GTX570 with traditional cooling (012-P3-1572-AR) eliminates this problem at all. Fresh air supply to the cards will come from the case's front fan. Exhaust will be via the rear. As all exhausts are external, you do not need to deal with the internal heat dump as well (excellent !).
Moreover, your Asus P8Z68-V Pro allows one empty slot in between the 2 cards, making air breathing in for the top card very easy.

As a conclusion, cancel your GTX590 order and get a pair of the GTX570 012-P3-1572-AR (as linked by bestdirect).

if the performance difference is not that much and they cost basically the same...avoid SLI/CF...just go with the GTX 590...it also has more VRAM so that's better for the future as well. However, if the SLI GTX 570 are significantly better or cheaper (15%+?) ...than perhaps they are the better route...i would always at a single gfx over dual gfx even if the performance is not as good (as long as it is close enough).
