Not bad in terms of price, but I think you would be better served buying a single GTX770 for only slightly more.

+1, always a clever thing to get a newer chip

Points:
1) GTX680 (770 similar) beats 590 in most games
2) 590 is dual-GPU thus will have more micro-stutter compared to single-GPU
3) 590 uses more power
4) 590 is not nearly as quiet as a good non-reference 770
5) Warranty

I think $300 would be the highest you can expect to get for this card.

Agreed.
I've been recommending either this MSI or the Asus. I give a slight nod to the Asus due to its BACKPLATE otherwise they are both excellent cards. (For $360 a GTX590 is a very, very poor choice. I thought you were selling one not buying.)

Here's the Asus I recommend (again the MSI is good. A few other cards are almost as good IMO):

*Here's the PERFORMANCE of the Asus in particular (SUMMARY of many games):

For $400 you can't do better.
Again, as mentioned the 590 has "similar" performance but that's only in benchmarks. In actuality you'll get more stuttering, noise, heat, less Video RAM etc. Not even a choice.

This asus 770 is not available in my area. So 590 is out now I am going to get EVGA 770($400). I just want to ask this last question that i can get Saphire 7970 for $350. If u were at my place what will u select from these two. I am really concerned about amd driver issues

The 590 is not in the 780's league. It's pretty much the same performance as the 770 but while having just 1.5GB vram (yuck) and being much hotter/louder/more power hungry. A 590 in 2013 is not worth more than $225 ish in my opinion.

Around the $360 mark, get a 7970 GHz Edition or 770 new.



7970 ghz not available

1. EVGA 770 ($400)
2. Saphire 7970 ($350) non-ghz

If u r at my place which one will u select? My main games are BF3, COD, Starcraft 2, LOL, GTA. Other spec

i5 3470
DH61ww intel
8 gb ram
EVGA GTX 660
Corsair HX 750
1080p

Get the EVGA 770.
Definitely get the ACX Cooler if available, as well as a BACKPLATE if possible.

The following NVIDIA game features may not matter to you but I'll list them since you discuss AMD vs NVidia:
1. Shadowplay (coming very soon). Can STREAM/Record gameplay with almost no performance hit (uses NVENC hardware decoder on GTX600/700 cards.)
2. PHYSX
3. NVidia Shield (portable gaming device requires GTX600/700 cards for streaming PC games)
4. SLI (superior to Crossfire in case you ever wish to add a 2nd card. *In fairness AMD just released an improved Crossfire driver but that's a new thing).

*However, don't let GEFORCE EXPERIENCE change your game settings. It configures the best settings to achieve 40FPS. That may be fine for some, but I prefer 60FPS and tweak my quality towards that frame rate.
