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

Rollo, just remember the low yields that Nvidia was getting with the gtx 480's before production to retail. Then all of a sudden they became the single gpu to get.

BTW Roadhog, why should I pay an extra $60-100 for 3rd party software when my manufacturer makes updates for me for free? I am referring to stuff like tridef 3d vs nvidia's updates. Leaving your 3d api to outside partners is a big mistake in my book unless AMD is getting licensing fees for such. And I remember right tridef 3d also supports 3d vision so that's out of the question. And Tridef supports as many games as nvidia's 3d vision native support so for me I wouldn't bother with tridef for an Nvidia solution anyhow.

Slawter, I wouldn't never question SNB-E, it WILL Kick ass over all CPU's, that I know. But I know FX will give SNB a run for it's money.
