Why a higher budget?

If I have a 500$ budget, I can get one 580, a 6970 with spare, or two 560s or two 6870 with spare.
The last two options are the best money/fps results.

Yes, some people will buy a flagship, some will not.

Also what is wrong with running a flagship card on a single monitor?
Some people want over the 60fps in every situation possible in every game, so its fine. Whats the point to force them to buy X or tell them they are wrong?
Its OCN, not "your money is my money and I tell you what to do with it or else I call you stupid".

No doubt, if you want the best value for your $1000 and you don't mind running 3 cards, you go red.

If money is no issue on the other hand, and you put up a 6990+6970 TriFire vs 3x580s in TriSLI...it'd be a whole different story completely.
Yea you'd need an extra $500 for the 3rd card, and +$$$ for a 2nd power supply to fuel the power hungry things.

Because he stated that people that buy on budget don't buy flagship. Which is wrong because I had a budget, just high enough to afford one.

And what's wrong with it? You can get the same performance for X resolution/monitor configuration for a lower price, which I thought is what this entire thread was about, not gpu count.

No triple 570.
No triple 480.
No triple 6970s.
No quad 470s.
No quad 5870s.
No quad 5970s.

Only OCed 6990 comparison vs. the stock GTX 580.

I smell this article trying to sell the 6990 + 6970, review is solely focused on the trifire setup.

Clearly, this review is for people with $1000 to spend on the latest gen GPUs. Pretty useful if your building a system on a set budget. I lol'd at all the "ifs"

I would like to see the 570 tri sli vs the 6990+6970 trifire I bet that would be a closer matchup and still within the price range of 1k.

Well if you bought that doesn't mean that most people do, now does it
You (or many others here) aren't very statistical truth

Also, yes, you can get performance X for lower price, which is why I said, you can get for the price of 500$ a couple of 560s and get higher performance than a 580, or get a couple of 6870s and get higher performance still.
There is nothing wrong with that. And this is why a person who buys by a budget and wants the best he can for example to 500$, shouldn't buy a flagship, as its not the best for that money.
If he will or will not, thats depends on the bling he wants in the end.

Maybe, but the truth is that 570s tri-sli will be a bit bottle-necked by its 1.28GB of memory vs the 2GB of the tri-fire.

Some people prefer intel, some amd, some nvidia, some just like to read a book by author X and all all computer users "white and nerdy".

Part of brand loyalty, is your piece of quiet that your believe your brand will give you the results with the quality you like.
That is the reason why people buy a sony and not a phony and the sort of thing.

In GPU market, there is also part of user history.
Some had horrid issues with drivers from brand X and just prefer to stick to another because of that, even tho its a bit costy.
New users who has absolutely no preference, will end up buying what their friends suggest, not nessecerily by the best for their budget or need.
