    I am in the same boat. If anyone would be so kind. Would love to try it out, but don't want to lay down the cash. I did not play Diablo or Diablo 2.

    EK Introduces Two Water Blocks for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590

    This. EK used to be a stand up company, unfortunately, they have gone the way of DangerDen. Now they produce junk and very often the nickel finish is of very low quality. Stick with MIPS for full cover blocks and Heatkiller or AquaComputer for GPU/CPU waterblocks.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Launch Date is March 22

    It will be better than the 6990, but two 580's in SLI still will be the much better performer. Not to mention that two 580's will destroy the 590 in regard to overclocking headroom. Kudos to nvidia for getting the power out, but I'll stick with my 580's.

    ASUS Radeon HD 6990 4 GB

    It's a decent card, but IMO SLI'd 580's still win easily. Not suprising. The 590 will probably not be much faster than the 6990 since the clocks will be much slower than a stock 580. Overclocking headroom will always be much better with an SLI or crossfire setup. I'll stick with my two 580's and...

    The GTX 590 NVIDIA dual GPU card thread

    wow, post something about nvidia and the AMD fanboi's come arunnin' kind of pathetic if you ask me. Just wait till the damn thing is released stop spreading opinions that have no basis in fact at all.

    [US] Avexir 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3 1333mhz 9-9-9-24 - 15$ SHIPPED!

    I'm not even going to try and argue with such a foolish statement. If you cannot understand the importance of ram (especially on an enthusiast site like TPU); then you really have no business giving anyone PC advice. This is my last post in this thread. The ram above is junk, if you want to...

    [US] Avexir 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3 1333mhz 9-9-9-24 - 15$ SHIPPED!

    Well considering Avexir is not a company many people have any experience with good luck with that "lifetime" warranty. RAM is not something you skimp on if you know anything about computers. You don't have to get the most expensive stuff, but you should do a little leg work and spend a little...

    [US] Avexir 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3 1333mhz 9-9-9-24 - 15$ SHIPPED!

    This. You can pickup a G. Skill 6GB DDR3 1600MHz kit from newegg for $70. So spend $45 on POS ram or spend $70 on ram with a lifetime warranty. Go figure.
