With that setup just do some oc'ing on the ram and your cpu and throw a 580 in there.
Personally in your case before I bought all new gear I would look into a triple monitor setup. Possibly 3d if you are into that. I am not. But the 120hz monitors would be better in fast paced environment if you can push the fps to do it.
So slap 2 580's in there and 3 monitors on the desk play in the bios and call it a day.
I would hesitate about the 590's unless you plan to run them stock and well what fun is that.
The 6990 would be the better choice if you are deadset on dual gpu card. This is coming from someone that has been nvidia since my first video card. An old agp card. Still have it somewhere.Edited by gildadan - 4/7/11 at 6:09pm
