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?
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. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-590-dua...
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."
