well the gtx 590 is a dual gpu card so you will need to enable sli so there will be no point in getting it if you cant enable it, as for your motherboard i dont think you can enable sli without a sli hack

No he is wrong you can use a dual GPU card in a non sli motherboard. Sli in a gtx 590 takes place in the GPU not the motherboard. But ya the CPU will bottleneck that GPU Maybe you can over clock it higher so it isn't such a huge bottleneck.

I would suggest to change the cpu ,because the 955 will be a bottleneck for such a strong card like 590
