I would give the edge to Asus, which is more likely to still be around honoring service claims/warranties in 2 years.

I Would get two Evga GTx 580 instead of 1 GTx 590... But if your doing 1 monitor, i'd go with the Asus one

Also i would highly recommend going with Evga because they are awesome increasing the speed :D  and plus decent cooling which shouldn't cause your GPU to OH

Asus are a better brand as their products usually run cool, quiet, and are more overclockable.

@mdd1963 regarding warranty thing.....zotac gives lifetime warranty in usa...but i live in india so can only have probably upto 5 years of warranty.....

@legendkiller ya for time being i will be using a single monitor.....also i like evga but in india there isn't much variety in it...and gtx 590 isn't available....

@ammu_10 are you sure regarding O.C thing???

A couple of years ago people used to recommend BFG for their lifetime warranty and look how that one turned out, what makes you think Zotac won't be around in a couple of years though?

Hi roque,
GTX590s right now arent recommend due to a mishap that occurred during testing.

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2011/03/25/geforc...

What is more recommended is that you tell us in detail what resolution you want to play in that is how big screen how many monitors etc.

That was four months ago on an old driver, things change you know and the current drivers are 275.33/280.19 as opposed to the 267.52 they were using and they were not just OC'ing the card but were overvolting it as well.

It's better to get TWO GTx 580 than 1 because the GTx 590 is just the combinatio nof both GTx 580 but with lower clock that's why it's $40 cheaper than two GTx 580... If you plan on getting two monitor, the Best choice would be the Gtx 580 unless you wanna go OverKill with two GTx 590 SLI which is an OverKill for every available game today at max setting...

exactly @mousemonkey....

@legendkiller just going to use a single monitor and also not planning to overclock.....overclocking decreases lifespan of components and i don't want to take that risk.....

OC doesn't decrease lifespan because, It's based "ON" Voltage+Heat/Temperature... For example, I keep my CPU at 1.225v(Stock voltage was freaken 1.275v and making my CPU like in the 70-80s awhile gaming) and is at 60s-70*C(Being under 70*C is good enough) awhile gaming, so it wont decrease lifespan... FOR GPUs, You just need to stay under 80*C and not overvolting your GPU so you should reach a max OC...

I did not think BFG would fold either...

But if you had to guess on Asus or Zotac for being around in two-four years, which do you think is more likely?

Zotac have been around since 2006 and are based in Hong Kong, I don't see how that make them less likely to be around in two to four years.
