I like some of the features with the 590, to me less noise is positive and if i had a 1080P panel it would have been an interesting card for me, the 6990 pretty much spanks it at resolutions above 1080p but they're more or less equal at less. I have no plans of buying either though but then again the absolute fastest doesn't matter to me hence the 470 i use at the moment. No game i play runs bad enough to warrant an upgrade but if it did i'd buy the 580 instead.
This is true, and I agree. It is an nvidia fansite, and I respect that. I just wish people were indifferent when it came to picking the "best solution." In this case, both solutions have drawbacks (6990: noise, GTX 590: it's slower), which is why I find it a little hard to swallow that everyone immediately announced the GTX 590 as the winner.
