Asus ares vs asus hd6990 vs asus gtx590

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?

  1. 6990 is faster especially at high resolution (2560x1600)

    ares is not competition...

    have self destroyed itself.

    winner :6990 imo
    just get a good case and dont let the fan go over %50.
  2. YOu can easily overclock 6990 to 950mhz but when u overclok gtx590
    you may damage the vrms and the card... check my thread!

    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."
