Any other questions why not to buy the GTX 590?
************************************************** ***********
There is absolutely no rational or reasonable point in purchasing either the GTX 590 or AMD 6990.

The reason why companies offer a Dual Card solution is because a new generation or series of cards is about to be released and they desperately want to dispose of the remaining inventory of old cards.

Both GPU´s consume way to much energy and just do not offer what should be expected by a product in such a price range.

In not even 3-4 months Nvidia Kepler and AMD 7000 series of cards will hit the market for persumeably the same price if not less ,twice or even triple the performance and less than half the power consumption in two words just more efficient.
Buying either one of those old gen underprivileged cards would be completely redundant and uncalled for.

All this hype and PR is caused by Nvidia and AMD to seduce the shallow minds in buying one of their overpriced old series **** cards which have only one good thing about them ...advertisement.

So be patient and wait until the new generation of GPUs arrive.

this is all presumption and lack of facts. the 7 series is scheduled to be released between the end of Q3 and Q4. Kepler may be around the same. It all depends on how well the yields turn out. Next if you know anything about nvidia it's that it always takes around two series to get the gpu correct. Everyone is going off of what they expect the 32nm process to yield but the truth is noone know exactly how much more effecient it will be. Also noone has any clue on whether or not there will be an actual 3gpu card. It's only assumed that they will since now they will have the space to make one. last gen isn't "old", it's just last gen. two "old" 480s will still beat down on plenty of games before and after being watercooled.

dual gpu cards have their place in the pc world. just cause you don't have use for one doesn't mean the next man can't either.

An assumption is based on out of focus and yet to be confirmed statements.
Everything I said had either already been approved upon by the corresponding company or was just logical fact.

Of course we still don´t have enough information about either GTX 590 or Kepler to have a serious debate but it has already been stated multiple times buy Nvidia that Kepler will have a much more efficient power consumption/performance ratio level than the Fermi chip and that it will certatinly outperform the aforementioned to the double or even triple.
If you had watched the Nvidia Roadmap or educated yourself about that matter in the net sufficiently you would know

And then Maxwell comes along two years later and we're saying the same things about Kepler vs. Maxwell. Such is the way of the computer industry.

That will probably happen
But be sure that maxwell will destroy everything haha
Crysis 2 will play like tetris with 5% chip exhaustion ^^

I'm not sure about the high expectations for Kepler, but the 7000 series (Southern Islands) isn't coming with any mighty game-breaking expectations. One of the people I talk to who is very close to the source has this to say:

Quote:
"Short story, it doesn't look like the 7K series will be out before Q4, and that is a bit wobbly. GloFo and TSMC are having the proverbial issues, and neither is in great shape for 28. Depending on the latest news, things might be pulled in or moved out, it is still in flux. GloFo seems ahead by several months in the roadmaps, likely more in practice.

ATI is being very tight lipped, and I have not had face time with my guys in a while, but the leaps are not going to be huge, think of a 69xx on steroids, but not a 3xxx -> 4xxx leap."
Anyways, speculation is speculation...Remember when Fermi was supposed to be the game-changer? The honest truth is we will never know until it is in practice.

True but 7000 series was never the main issue here
My points majorly regarded Kepler and I am sure you understand that we don´t have to assume that this chip will make an extreme difference.

Well you referenced that both Kepler and 7000 series (Southern Islands) would be coming out in 3-4 months. That would put in the April/May release. There is absolutely NO WAY that any 28NM offerings will be out that early with what is going on with TSMC & Global Foundries. They would be lucky to get production 28nm chips out by quarter 4 of this year, but absolutely NOT by April or May.

Just going by what I say from my sources...but honestly we don't know what Kepler is going to bring, Fermi was a whole new architecture and it tanked.

However if it is all the hype and a game-changer, then I will gladly buy a pair.
