I've heard but I think there was a problem with the 590, something about the VRMS and the card in general running a lot hotter than the 6990. There has been people around the net who have reported issues with the card where they have failed and burnt out. Not sure if this is all true or just ATI propaganda. I think Nvidia is suppose to release a new bios for it. Definitely do not want to beta test the 590.
Obviously I don't want a card with cooling issues running in this case. I like the performance of the 768 sli for my purpose however. I think the 2600k might even squeeze a little more fps out of them. Only problem is I got the msi twin frozer ones where the heat dumps inside the case.
