Pretty sure 580 SLI is stronger than the 590, so yeah... My $365 cards are about even with a 590, for half the price
. Now clearly mine are overclocked whereas the 590 and 580s aren't I'm not delusional in my thinking that when overclocked at least the 580s are going break away. But the 590, well thats a different story. OCP, poor VRM design, these are two of my least favorite things.
So I'll stand by my statement that the 590 is a poor card, with poor overclocking potential, too large a price tag, and overall for the price, poor performance.
You've got ot be kidding me?? That is the most idiotic reasoning I have ever heard, and fyi, is not even proper English in regards to what you are trying to say. Your cards, which total $730, are about even with a GT590... for the same price. You can't just compare the price of one card and the performance of two, and I don't even really think you believe what you are saying makes sense. You sound like one of those people that just hates to admit when they made a dumb statement, so they would rather make 20 more stupid statements to try and cover it!! The words "half the price" should not even be used in this discussion.
Your sentence: My $365 cards are about even with a 590, for half the price
is not grammatically correct in any way. You started off with a subject that is plural (ie "cards"), and then ended by talking about a price in regards to a singular item. Your entire argument is nonsense, saying you misspoke initially would be a LOT easier than trying so hard to make sense of what you wrote
