Face it, the GTX 590 is the better buy. Similar performance, quiter, has CUDA, most likely much smoother gameplay thanks to SLI vs CF. Sorry but the extra RAM did not favor the 6990 at extreme resolutions either, check the hardware canucks review. At 5760 resolution, with or without AA the GTX 590 won
Also check out the load temps and the noise temps
2. There's a GTX 590 Sli review out on Guru iirc and the 6990 Crossfire smokes it
3. Reviews didn't use the 11.4 Beta drivers which have been PROVEN by members on this very forum to offer ATLEAST 20+% improvment leaving the lagging GTX 590 even more behind.
Noise is the ONLY thing you Nvidia fan boys have to use against the 6990.
Bottom line is the 6990 is cheaper, faster, consumes less power and from what I've seen runs slightly cooler AND doesn't go up in a puff of smoke like in that GTX 590 youtube video posted...lmaooo
