@OP you going with a 2600k as well? What does the rest of the build consist of?
2500k

*Puts on body armor*

I know why a 2500k with a build like that? The HT really has no use for me since all i will be doing is gaming, with some benchmarks here and there.

Rest of build

Raided ssd's + 1tb data mechanical drive

Asus rog extreme

atleast a 1200 psu

corsair 800D

Full water cooling loop.

2500k is just fine. 2600k is for people who take use of HT like folding, encoding, or simply just to epeen.

Naw, you're right. You have very little use for the HT; a 2500K will be more than enough.

I vote GTX 580's. If I remember correctly, that'll give you better scaling across the three cards as opposed to two dual-gpu cards. Not to mention that means 3GB per GPU, instead of the 2GB/gpu on the 6990. You're water-cooling them anyway, so the possible heat/noise issues for three sandwiched cards are mitigated.

A high clocked 2500k should be able to push two 6990s.

AA at really high res(1600p or so) is useless.

This is a toughy one.. Decision wise lol.

I'm feeling the 580's, I'm thinking quad scaling still needs work.

What resolution are you going to be running at?
Do you really need to spend all that $?

sorry u are wrong,change your old thoughts,
amd 6series gpu scales extremely well in crossfire,
amd gpu now scales like nvidia gpu,
my vote goes to 2x hd6990

i honestly expected this discussion to be more one sided hehe.
Even if more people spoke against my previous statement that 2 6990's would suit better.


I do apologise i seemed to overlook that the build would be completely watercooled, so heat wouldnt be an issue but also take into account that with every thread there may be someone out there who has a similiar question, so stating ALL the pro's and cons (even the ones that arent valid in THIS scenario) isnt completely useless
