what do you mean by Dual "Vent" ? and why would you go with a single GTX 590 while you can get the same performance out of 2 GTX 570s in SLI

When I said « Dual-Vents » I'm refering to the Fans, or to be more precise, Dual-Fans.

As for the SLI solution... well, since my MB only has a single slot of PCIe16x I can not do SLI. Therefore it's out of the question.

i can find only EVGA GTX 590 on both ebay and newegg, and both are reference designed cards.
i have never heard of that PSU, are you sure it will handle the GTX 590 just fine ?
another question ? why do you need the GTX 590 ? it's a very hard decision for enthusiasts to decide when they going hard on games

I was actually looking to get a MSI GTX580 since their models have dual-fans providing better cooling. But since I'm limited to one slot PCIe and can't SLI I was trying to find a model of the GTX590 with similar cooling system because it's like a SLI on a single graphics card.
Also I'm looking to try the Dual Monitor gaming (I have a second similar TV-Monitor that I can use for that.)
As my last thought... I'm always looking to buy stuff that will endure time for longest run possible and since I'm a Crisys fan (and other games of sort) that becomes a little tougher.

Thanks for your input!

I'm also a rookie CUDA developer, so using nVidia cards is prioritised over ATI (AMD).
