Dual core cards are exactly the same as using SLi in terms of how they rely on AFR.
Ahh, I saw "3D" and was thinking 3 displays.... because that's the only reason I could have imagined him needing a 590 anyway lol

I agree.... more graphics horsepower at this point is pointless because of the resolution the display will be running at. Probably going to be CPU bottlenecked before anything.... That's not something I'd worry about though since even that ceiling is very high.
