***GTX 590 SLI question***

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok I have two EVGA gtx 580's superclocked. Would it be better to step up to dual 590's aka 4 gpu's or just get another gtx 580 superclocked.?

P.S Does anyone know when EVGA will have step up for gtx 580 to gtx 590 ? Thanks Fellas.

EVGA has no plans for Stepup at this time.

two 580 are GREAT, i don't see the need of going by two 590 ... instead of getting a 3rd 580 ... think about "nvidia surround" ......

One question for you as well: who gave you the right to cut off the power of your country by 75% by using not one, but two, of those watts-hungry beasts?!

Joking I guess 3-way SLI with GTX580 will be more then enough, after that they just won't scale good.
