I've read every review I could find regarding the 6990 and the 590 and ultimately went with the nVidia, but it was not a simple decision. One advantage the 6990 has is the MLAA in the drivers. However, I've read that nVidia will offer a competative solution in a future driver update. Knowing this, plus having Physx, a quieter card and one that will play basically everything maxed out at 1920x1200 was what secured the choice for me.
So you made your purchase based on what they will allegedly include in a future driver release? In other words, rumors about an unknown driver release, at an unknown time, influenced your decision...
To each his own I guess lol.
