    Hmmm, how do you guys think the 590 will compare? I got some store credit to use up. Living off a 8800GTX at the moment, I'm thinking I should wait.

    You can always rely on HardOCP to provide a biased and illogical reviews. :thumbdn:

    Has to be the worst reviewer around.

    Anyway the idle power draw on this card should mean my electricity costs stay the same. As the idle is lower but the load is higher.

    Very nice, but as I've always complained about, this type of GPU power is just unnecessary for most people, benchmarks exempt.

    PC games just don't push hardware that much anymore... displays are still tight @ 1080p, and 30" + are too expensive to push these types of GPU setups.

    I think when BF3 hits, it'll change the developers minds about PC gaming and hopefully push this stuff out in a better fashion.

    Crysis 2 is proof that even the top dogs don't give a shit, releasing an AAA+ title with DX9 only...... hahaha yeah, that requires 2 x 6990's :p

    Honestly everyone could sell it for $999 and they still would be selling out.
