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

well, I took a plunge towards glory. I saw ud7 mb at the right price and got it and am giving the ud5 to my brother so can also be bullozer ready. Mind you he only has a gtx 580. I also got a second gtx 590 for quad sli damage. I don't gamble on tech. I know Bulldozer is going to kick ass. And when I am right, watch Rollo get all of a sudden get real quiet about this when sandy bridge is getting a run for it's money. BTW, they didn't just recall Bulldozer because of low yields, they are also going back to the drawing board to get more horsepower out the cpu. In other words, AMD knows that they have get better per clock on the cpu. I read this in a article somewhere that it was cpu horsepower related being the recall. I like when someone doesn't see that their product isn't good enough to go to market yet and perfects it. Now if AMD would do this for their graphics.. and Nvidia wouldn't release a card (gtx 480) that wasn't ready in terms of heat instead of perfecting it with Vapor Chamber cooling in the gtx 480, they would have had no reason to make a refresh for quite some time.
