EVGA GTX 580 SuperClocked vs XFX HD 6990 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Straight up, 580 SC vs 6990 is an obvious 6990 choice.

But you're better to wait the few days until the GTX 590 release, and pick between the 590 and the 6990.

You'd be crazy not to wait until the GTX590 is released. Just wait a few days and make your choice then

I would also go for x2 6970's. Unless you want to quadfire later with the 6990
