He says his cpu is running at 4.2 and not 3.2 like in his sig.

and that res is very low even for just a GTX 580 let alone SLI 590's
He says he wants to bench, and the 590 alone gets horrendous frame rates in 3dmark 11 at Extreme settings, so how is that overkill?

Personally, I'd return that 590 and wait for the new stuff, but if he wants to do it, why not let him, he can obviously use an extra 590 for benching and certain games.

I could use more power than my 470s can create even at 1080p, though I don't really need it... Could use it is a totally different beast

Can you tri-sli with a 580? Or sell your 590 and get two 580s or 3 570s or 4 480s.

I would do 2 x 580's and run them in SLI, the 590's have a name for blowing up if overclocked right now. And since I see that you overclocked your CPU I have a feeling that you may want to OC your GPU as well. So my opinion is to go with the 580's and since the 590's are $699-729 on newegg. The EVGA GTX 580 water cooled card on Newegg is around the same price, with better clock speeds stock, you will only have a single GPU per card though.
