I will just stick with my three GTX 470's even tho I would love to have just one card like the GTX 590 but only if it had enough power to really run it all out.And as of cooling it, they could have made it three slots with two fans over it .Just my opinion.
Both cards have there strengths and weaknesses. In the end they are about the same with there pluses and minuses.
