lol dame. i asked a question about surround and look what this turned into. but i agree, what kung pow posted didnt make any sense to me thats why i didnt reply to it.
anyway, the other reason that i dont want to wait and see is, as soon as the card is released the 580 will drop alot.
Lets get the final answer
GTX 580 you have can't run Surround
GTX 590 (I belive its 2x 580's downclocked) CAN run Surround and pretty damn good settings
GTX 590 Assuming I'm wrong and its 2x 570's It can run surround with pretty damn good settings and Will give you performance better then a Single 580
Price vs Performance etc blah let someone else worry about that crud
we can all guess the card would be around 800. gotta compete with the 6990.
since i can sell the card for 600. i only need to chuck another 200-300.
im trying to stick to 1 card, because the i3 has 1 full 16x lane.
