And we don't know if those cards will have bugs, major problems and stuff. Moreover, what video cards will be released? High-end, which is what i am looking for, or mid-range ones? So, i am not going to risk it by waiting. GTX 590 would last quite a while with my single monitor i think. rvilkman August 11, 2011 5:07:52 PM GTX590 is just very expensive, since when you upgrade you would most likely be replacing video cards anyway, I would recommend 560Ti SLI. It gives you pretty much all the juice you will need at a much nicer cost. <$500 before rebates and stuff, and can be had for as low as $400 after. So it is $300:ish less than the GTX590. You can spend the money you save on a SSD or possibly beefing up the PSU even more so you will not run into any issues with it down the road. Like the Corsair AX1200. farsuka August 11, 2011 7:58:37 PM You can SLI 570s for the price of your 590. paliovouna August 11, 2011 11:36:50 PM I'm actually buying the 590, it's confirmed now. And, maybe, i'll have up to 3 monitors (that's new), so next year, i will quad sli two 590's Thanks. everyone. rvilkman August 12, 2011 3:17:49 PM Well since you are going with the 590SLI eventually, get the Corsair AX1200 you will need the extra juice.
