I did when it was faster than two 6970 gpus at high res.
The 590 is a bad card.
I've seen the 6950 in action its a good card, 570 reference is not so great. Comparable to the 590 in many respects. I think the price difference is closer to $30-40 now, depending on which card you get. Reference 570s are around $300 with 6850s around the $250... at least last time I checked.
I don't really talk about res'es that I don't game at because I don't really have any experience in those res'es.
I got a new ASUS about 7 months ago for $185, and picked up a used EVGA card used here for $180... Luckily it came with a backplate and a lifetime warranty which made me feel bad about spending $185 on a three year warranty card
I may look like a fanboy because of that post, but you're clearly blind to the other ones if you can't spot the reason for it.Edited by BallaTheFeared - 4/27/11 at 3:09pm
