Hi Guys

my question

which is the better card ?
i have read the latest reviews where the 6990 and 590 went head to head
but still cannot make up my mind on what card is best
i intend to overclock which ever card i end up choosing

if money wasn't the issue in making a decision like this ?
I know the ares is an older card than the latest offerings from ati and nvidea
but can it hold its own against them?

6990 is faster especially at high resolution (2560x1600)

ares is not competition...

gtx590's pcb gets over 110degrees and vrms are burning so many cards
have self destroyed itself.

winner :6990 imo
just get a good case and dont let the fan go over %50.

From Tom's Hardware:
"Nevertheless, in a comparison between GeForce GTX 590 versus Radeon HD 6990, Nvidia wins. And it wins because I can put a GeForce GTX 590 in my workstation, which doubles as my gaming machine, and not hear it. It’s quiet enough to use. And that’s a requisite.

From Hardware Canucks:
"The GTX 590’s real accomplishment is the feeling of refinement that it exudes. Unlike the HD 6990, its VRMs don’t squeal like a scared piglet and fan noise is kept to an absolute minimum. The fact that its svelte 11” length will fit into a wide variety of cases should also make it in vastly more appealing than the behemoth AMD is currently saddled with."
