Sorry to say this but no sensible PC builder will hook up two 6970s or 570s to a 1920x1200/1080 monitor.
When comparing 2560x1600+ resolutions, SLI gets crushed.
The 3GB vram will greatly help the performance of the 590 and will give it the performance edge over the 6990.
The individual Nvidia cards in SLI needs more vram to compete in the high resolution market.
1080p is considered a low resolution now. Midrange video cards handle 1080p pretty easily.
People are gradually moving onto triple monitor setups.
Once Nvidia supports single card Surround, the adoption rate will increase rapidly.Edited by WorldExclusive - 1/28/11 at 6:46am
