Review Date: 11/12/11
Cons: none.

Pros: [relatively] silent. Great Performance.
The install was a hassle: since I send signal to either my PC monitor and speakers (for gaming) or to a AV setup through HDMI (for videos), I had trouble getting the HDMI handshake to work with mu AV components. Nothing to do with the card, but the EVGA Tech Support was top notch. No wait, very patient and knowledgeable. Not my first EVGA card, and certainly not my last. Problem solved.Processing and shipping from NCIX was extremely prompt. As usual, perfect service.Now the CARD itself: I was replacing the old GTX 295, still a great card. The 590 does give me about twice the performance, at a MUCH lesser noise level and heat.'Been playing Skyrim for the last day or so, and everything is set on ULTRA; I get consistent 60 FPS inside (could be higher, but I have v-sync), and outside environments I get 45-50 FPS. So far it's never dipped below 40. And that's on all ULTRA settings. So this just cost me $750 (with a Batman Arkham game included). About the price and performance of 2 GTX 570 SLIs, but I like not having 2 cards in my case.

Cons: might be a bit long for some casesCould benefit from more vram 1.5gig per card is tight on a 3 monitor 5760x1080 setup

Pros: quiet yet powerful
Installed this card to run a triple 23" monitor setup. does exactly as advertised and does run 3 monitors on one card, i will say i expected performance to be a bit higher on a 3 monitor setup but not enough to complain, but i might buy a second 590 down the road just for more wiggle room in high end games.Some fps examples of games played: bf3w5760x1080 high settings 50-60fps, woww5760x1080 ultra settings 80+fps,Riftw5760x1080 ultra settings 50-60fps.Many of these titles when running in single monitor mode are absolutely crushed in fps.

Cons: Wish the price was a bit higher [/sarcasm]Had some compatibility issues with an old motherboard, but I had a new one on the way that actually had PCI-e 2.0 slots.

Pros: Incredibly fast, absolutely beautiful design, solid feel.
You get what you pay for, that's for sure. An incredible card, no heating problems, no malfunctions, just raw gaming power. Worth every penny.

Cons: I didn't have this sooner.

Pros: Best Dual GPU card on the market.Runs very quiet compared to other Dual GPU cards.So damn fast.
This card is roughly equal to two GTX 570s in SLI. It has dual GTX 580 GPUs but they are downclocked to a level of a 570. This card never hits above 70C while under full load. I get 150FPS average in Bad Company 2 with all settings full and 8xAA/16xAF. If you are deciding between this and a 6990, get this. They trade blows in benchmarks but the 590 wins because it is way quieter and cooler. The stock fan scheme sucks though so you should use EVGA Precision to make your own.

Cons: None really, just a noisy fan sometimes (during high loads). Expensive.

Pros: Premium powerhouse card. Very excellent build quality.
Mostly using this card for development (running in SLI mode, hooked to a 30" screen). Excellent card, very excellent build. I've had many evga cards before, all good, but build quality of this one is just impressive. Card gets sometimes noisy (fan) during high loads, you might hear it. During average loads I cannot hear it.
