Eh...

Neither of those if you enjoy overclocking your cards.

But of the two listed I'd go for gtx 570 tri-sli simply because the 590 is a more neutered version of the the 580 than the 570 is.


Also you can do three screens on 2 570s but they're probably going to limit you on vram. I'd suggest looking at 480s personally.

if your looking for a high res set up, you may want to look at the 6990... the 4GBs of VRAM helps a lot with high res... loyalties aside, it is a good card

For those real large 3D Surround resolution's I would recommend more then 1280MB of RAM.
They can do it in many cases but not all.

I think I am actually going to recommend the 590, or two 3GB GTX 580's in SLi.

6990 has 2GB of usable ram per core. 4GB 6990 and 3GB 590 is just marketing to fool people.

From what I've seen. Stock GTX570s(x2) or slight overclock beat a single 590.

GTX 590 is 2x GTX 560Ti so even 2x GTX 570 will be faster than 1 GTX 590.

3 570s will kill a single 590. 590 = 2 GTX580 chips. If it had proper cooling and proper mofsets, then you could be running stock speeds on each GTX580.

But personally I would go 6990 + 6970 then that way it gives your oom to expand if needed.
