no, sorry, you are better off buying sli 670's. the 590 gets too hot and draws way to much power!!

it all depends, how much you are spending?

farrout where did you buy it from? I live in Australia too and I sold my gtx 580 for $350 only a few weeks ago!

to answer your question, my single gtx 670 cant handle 3d metro2033, battlefield 3, crysis2 maxed at 1920x1080. You gtx 590 is about 10-15% faster so you would be able to to turn on more eye candies. But you'd have to lower the settings and AA to some extent for sure.

I paid $500 bucks for mine and apparently that was a good bargain, got it shipped from America tho. The Asus Direct cu II top models are quite rare and still out of stock over here. I will probably wait a few months before getting the second one cause no one is selling them for less than $600 at the moment.

Yeah that's a good way to go, if you go quad sli, then you will definitely be able to max out all the titles in 3d.

I've played 3D Metro 2033 and Crysis 2 with as well as 2 680's. Crysis 2 should run maxed out on a single 670, or at least it did quite well with a single 680 for myself. On the other hand, Metro 2033 still can't be maxed with 2 680's in 3D, but I can get close enough with DX11, high settings and tessellation (physx off, DoF off. You don't want DoF on with 3D anyways).

well I can play crysis 2 on a single gtx 670 in 3d but even though its playable, the framerates aren't exactly great. My gtx 670 actually beats most of the gtx 680s. But if I don't get ultra smooth 50+ fps gameplay, it affects my performance in mp games. So I don't consider it playable.

What is your CPU? Crysis 2 on a single 680 gives me 60 fps 95% of the time, and never goes below 50 at max settings. I am very much a stickler when it comes to high FPS, which is why I have 2 680's. Your 670 is only going to be faster due to OCing, which is also something I did with 1. With 2 680's, I don't bother, though it may help get a little more for Metro 2033.

Edit: When was the last time you played Crysis 2 in 3D? The reason I ask is that 9 months ago, when I played it, it got much lower FPS than a couple months ago. There may have been a patch or driver change that radically improved performance.

hmm from what I think, the gtx 670 is having driver issues with the crysis 2, with the lastest R304 beta drivers, I am getting solid 80-90 fps in battlefield 3 but whenever I run crysis2, I get about 50-70. And that fps is much lower in 3d. I will run the game in 3d maxed just in case and will let you know.

Crysis 2 seems to use a virtual 3D mode, a bit different than most. Rather than rendering two different views, it kind of alters the first one, making it far less demanding than normal. Due to this, you won't see a lot of FPS loss with 3D, at least not as much as you typically see. I would love to know if there was a way to stop this virtual mode in this game. You can see something is up when you look closely around objects and there is a bit of a blur or halo effect.

okay this is weird, my fps in crysis 2 3d at a given scene is around 71 avg and never dropping below 60, whereas when I play it in 2d, I only get 51.8fps avg. These nvidia drivers are working in a weird way with this game. In both cases, I am running the game all maxed out 1920x1080.
