590 is better bang-for-buck but 580 SLI of course performs better.

590 is cheaper than a pair of 580s,it is quieter and is a single card. Those there are the ONLY good things about it. In every single other way, a pair of 580s kicks the 590 to the moon and back with one SLI bridge tied behind it's back.

580 is the winner in performance.
590 is the winner in heat (has NO heat issues)

If you're looking to SLI for performance 580 3gb's are coming out in a weekish, I'd buy those.

If you're looking for a single card solution, the 590 is your winner.

Also, 2x590's slightly beat 3x580's and actually cost 100$ less so, keep that in mind.

The 590 is also extremely limited and the staggered release, to my knowledge, is coming to a close so, get them while you're can if you're interested.

And MSI's 580 is NOT better than EVGA's, it's OC'd at stock in the Bios...Something a child could easily accomplish on any 580.

3x gtx580 (3gpu) vs 2x gtx590 (4gpu)!!
Thats not fair,
compare 4x gtx580 with 2x gtx590,
the former would destroy 2x gtx590,
dont bring money into concern because enthusiasts dont care for money,they just want the best
note: many OCN members who owns gtx590 have complained about its heat issues,
try to accept the hard truth,
msi gtx580 lightning is the best single gpu card,
I've nothing against evga,I love their cards very much

SLI scaling starts to drop after 3 so 4 gpus wont perform so well and you will need a pretty high res to even use up all that power. 2500 res or w/e with 3 cards is enough.

Masked actually owns (indirectly or directly) several 590's and 580's so I am sure he would know better

The lightening is better, due to its buffed PCB and overall design and quality. But MSI ref and EVGA ref are exactly the same, heck all the ref 580's are exactly the same.

We have to have at least 1 of every card in our systems...plus whatever the "kids" want in the office...

590 owners are NOT having heat issues, there are no reports of such on [H], here or Evga...So unfortunately, I'm going to shoot that down as 100% bull****.

That being said, scaling craps after 3 slots...So, 2x590s DO and will beat 3x580's however, as Alex so politely pointed out, unless you're rocking surround, it really doesn't matter.

Also, who's to say if he's an enthusiast or not?

2x cards generate less heat than 3x cards and if he had them on liquid, OC'ing 2 cards in a loop is a significantly different delta than 3.

I stand by my original statement.

P.S. 5 users complaining about heat, doesn't mean the 590's are having heat issues, that means 5 people's cases, aren't properly rigged for air

Even is 3+ SLI/xfire did crap out at or past 3 cards it still performs exceptionally well. Though I do agree that heat will be an issue, but 3 cards is all I believe is all that is needed imo.

Sli scaling
Metro 2033 (1=>2 cards)63% (2=>3)124% (1=>3)202%

This is just metro, there are other games that scale VERY well with 3 cards

This. I bet they never realised that a fan blowing onto the rear of the 590 will degrade it's performance, causing a struggle between the air exhausting from the 590 and the fan. 590 and 6990 need a whole new fan arrangement normally.

3way/4way SLi is really not too good for people other than extreme enthusiasts with lots of money and benchmarkers.

Working where you do must be awesome >_>
What do you actually do in a normal day?

Perhaps he works for a Survey Company?

On topic though, I just bought 2x 580 and never looked back.

Rest assured, your Corsair 850w is more than enough to handle the single GTX 590. As for the case, just take a look and measure it yourself. The GTX 590 is 11 inch long, you should be able to figure it out yourself!
