I already have 2xhd 5850 working cfx should i buy gtx 580 or gtx 590 or should i consider to use 3 way or even 4 way 5850 ? Because if i have to sell my amd i will loss about 50% my money before. If i buy another 5850 there is an option from saphire that only price around $140. I curently use Maximus IV Ex, Corsair Hx 850, 8gb corsair vengeance 1866(oc) cas 8-9-8, i5 2500k and two monitor setup. Please help i realy confuse here because that the curent king gtx 580 always call me to buy it :p ! I have no problem about the performance of my gpu but I just want my vga is in the top chart again. Thanks sincerely.

my point is gtx 580 vs 3 x 5850? what is realy worth the money and future upgrade? Despite if talking about performance it's certainly 3x5850 won against gtx 580 but that damn current king (gtx 580) always call my name before im sleeping to buy it :p . Not to mention if i want to get gtx 580 i must sell my 2x hd 5850 and that's mean i must be ready to lose about $300 :< hikz and to find the buyer and agree the price would require a process that is not small and simple course . But if i add 1 more 5850 i just have to buy saphire hd 5850 which has a price around $140 and much2 simple process right?.

Just my 2 cents, but after playing with 2 HD 6950's for 3 months, I'm going to get a GTX 580, maybe a 590.

I would say for the difference in the performance for how much it is going to cost to buy a 580gtx your better off waiting for AMD 7000 series Q4 2011 or Nvidea 600 series Q1 2012. If you wait a few months more the performance for you money will be much more worth while.

I think I like this idea thanks man :> because i kept thinking even if i buy 580 that price around $500 I'm not going to get more improved performance than i have now right? but i'm only get inner satisfaction ;p but that's the whole point you buy expensive sparepart isn't it? because I have never seen any game that requires us to use the 580/590/6990/6970. I am frankly a bit hard to let go of my 2 x 5850 to lose about 50% (around $250) is HD 7xxx or GTX 6xx is definitely going to come out in a few more months? gtx 580 just been released few month ago. I think it might just be a new type out again after a year maybe? all these thing realy make consumer confused that damn nvidia and ati, why they not make realy2 good gpu and then it can be the most powerfull gpu for 4-5 years that would be nice.

Not like these days, i bought my gpu just around 1,3 years ago, when i bought it my gpu is on top charts but look now its on the bottom of high end gpu charts! :pt1cable:  :pt1cable:  :pt1cable:  Right now i'm thinking like 60% buy another 5850 to run on 3 or even quad channel thats only $280 compare to %500 ++ to get the current king just 40%. OOHH IM SO CONFUSED! :pt1cable:  :pt1cable:  :pt1cable:  "it kept calling my name and say buy me buy me buy me" :lol:
