Neither, both cards are too limited for their price.

Go with SLI 570s/480s or CF 6950/70s, you'll get better performance. If you're up for investing a bit more, SLI 580s is a beastly setup and about 15-30% stronger than a 6990/590.

If you've already got 1 580, get a second. It'll be more expensive than stepping up your 580, but 580s are just significantly better cards than the 590s.

You RMAd a card because of bad performance? Or was there something wrong with it? I don't support RMAing a card simply because it isn't giving you the performance you are expecting.
