    I have bean saying there is a problem with this card for awhile! Just every time I brought it up to a Nvidia Fan boy they said I was crazy. I do a side business building for people. I have built to PC's with these cards. 1 with 1 GTX 590 and the other with 2 GTX 590's.
    Two cards out of the 3 had to be RMA'd for overheating problems. Trust me I am not happy about being right. I really wanted these cards to go through with out a hitch. I am just speaking out because I knew it and I was told i was crazy!
    So is there any word if Nvidia will upgrade current owners to the new style for free?
    We already got replacements(That seem to be working)...but when I called EVGA and said "Hey we got some weird issues here during 3Dmark11" I was told "Check your other hardware your nuts (Basically)"

    I can guess no. Only RMA's would be replaced so if your card works, it'll not get switched. Nvidia aren't a generous company, the fact the 590 in the UK is at least a good £50+ more than the more powerful 6990 shows their arrogance.

    And I'm a very happy MSI 580 Lightning owner (best card I've ever bought :))

    I see that it's only a very small change to the inductors, not a wholesale beefing up of the power supply.

    This will likely have one of two effects:

    1 Once the new versions are out, they will be sold as "New and improved!" and the old ones will be sold off relatively cheaply

    2 The difference will deliberately not be made clear and the new will be sold alongside the old, to dispose of the old at top dollar.

    After the experience of my v1.0 Gigabyte mobo when the v1.1 was released, I'm going for the second scenario. I never was able to get the v1.1 board.
