technically you can power cards like the nvidia GTX570 and AMD 6970 but I would personally stick to cards like the Nvidia GTX 560ti and AMD 6950.

the corsair cx600 is a solid PSU but is not as high in its 12v power (40a) as some other offerings for 600w PSU.

I have two Sapphire HD 5850s crossfired and overclocked to 871/4700 with that PSU. They work fine.

Normally with 600w you can run almost any card. I don't know about 6990 or 590.But anything with single coregpu you can run on that PSU.

It's not enough to power a system with a single EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win (02G-P3-1569-KR) dual-GPU graphics card.

It's not enough for a single GeForce GTX 590 or a single GeForce GTX 580 or a single Radeon HD 6990 or a single Radeon HD 6970 X2 dual-GPU card.

It meets the minimum requirements to run a single GeForce GTX 570 or a single Radeon HD 6970 or a single Radeon HD 6870 X2 dual-GPU card.
