Which I do realize, but why 3 cards when you can have 2? Scaling might be better for all I know.

What?
You know a 590 is a dual-chip so 2 590 is quad.
Are you confused on something? or is it just me?

So are you saying that since he's already wasting money on 3 GPUs he should get 4?

I just said I know 2x 590's are quad. I'm not very familiar with dual GPU's, so no idea how scaling might turn out. Or would it act completely like it was 4 cards?

Time to start reading OP's post. 2x 590 instead of 3x 580? Only paying like a 100 dollars more? Seems like a worthy trade off to me.

I like that logic, If I am wasting money, I might as well waste as much as possible.

Sounds like gas, if im going to dry a car with bad gas millage, I might as well just pour gas on the ground as I drive.
