Summary: the 590 is still 1 bad mamba jamba ,, goes toe to toe with the evga gtx 770 4Gb sc , , I have everthing on my computer o/cd, 2600k @ 4.8 Ghz watercooled,16Gbs vengeance 1600 o/cd to 1866.. but I have a (poormans vid card cooling system) lil 6 inch personal fan blowing into my case to keep things cool,, I used Msi Afterburner,, awesome free o/c software for older cards This card can play BF 4 on ultra on a single HD monitor without a hiccup, with a small 5% o/c, BF 3 on...
Summary: I have an older i7 motherboard and this was the fastest graphic card it could support. I had to modify my case to get it installed, but it is well worth it. I finally have the graphics that are excellent for my PC games and my video editing. I would recommend this product to anyone that really wants to have a high end graphics card operating in their computer.
Summary: Excellent used buy. This is one of the top 5 single graphics experiences available. Basically 2 GTX 580's downclocked to reduce heat and voltage. Got mine with Koolance waterblock preinstalled and couldn't be happier. 1 year ago this would have cost over $1000.00 This is the way to go if you are a serious gamer on a modest budget!
Summary: This is a excellent high performance graphics card. This is 2 - GTX580 gpu's on a single card. They are down-clocked to lower heat and voltage, making it a great solution if you do not want to upgrade to a higher wattage psu and second video card. A little slower than 2 seperate GTX580's, but all the bugs are worked out and contains an imbedded sli connection. No noise! Mine came with a Koolance waterblock installed($150 value).
Fantastic hardware built for enthusiasts and professionals alike.

Summary: Fantastic Card! extremely fast, 7.9 scores in windows experience index. Benchmarks higher than anything else and works extremely well for visual effects (cinema 4d, after effects) work. combine this with the new x79 chipset, quad channel memory, and OCZ revodrive technology and you have the fastest consumer grade hardware on the market.
Summary: I had heard some complaints about this card being noisy and overheating and not doing well on synthetic benchmarks. I am pleased to say that I am very happy with this card as the fan noise is not at all that bad and the temperatures have not been excessive. It also holds its own in benchmarking. A very well designed card.
