Default Re: debating a second gtx 590 or two gtx 580 3gb's

3 GTX 580 3GB's, because where it counts (where 3 or 4 SLI really makes a difference), you need the vid-mem too, so the GTX590 start to run out of it.

And, a Geforce takes a lot more advantage of the nForce200 chip on the P67, se hard OCP and see the forums for Vega, who did some tests with 3 GTX580 3GB's.
