I don't remember reading anywhere about the above 2 cards lasting ONLY 3 months. Maybe you had just bad luck.
Now seriously, this is "Other Desktop Graphics Cards" sub forum, basically a forum for AMD/ATI graphic card users to exchange experience. I wonder why very few Nvidia ethusiast ONLY visit this forum to troll.
Did you compare GTX480 or 4870x2 to 6990? You didn't!
Sure, GTX480 is hot and loud, but according to some tests 6990 is even worse. And btw, GTX480 is history, not important.
You know, objectivity is a virtue.
