  1. Hi

    The GTX590 is the faster card, see here: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/516?vs=555

    Though the GTX680 uses less power and runs cooler.

    I'd personally stick with the GTX590 unless you have the cash for GTX680 SLI or GTX670 SLI.

    Your motherboard is fine for GTX 680 SLI
  2. Is your 590 not satisfying you in some way? Only you can answer your own question based on what your needs are.

    Yes.
    Yes.
  3. i dont have money now for upgrade gtx 680SLI...maybe for some time!

    omgitzfatal.....i saw that test...and i think i stick with my gtx 590!!

    thanx for quick reply!!!
  4. No worries.
  5. I guess it all depends on whether you're happy with your current performance - I would rather have the 670 or 680 to SLI down the road but that's my 2 bits.

    Not me, I'd rather have 590 quad SLI and some compute power.
  7. 590 is better than 680 in performance :)
