Ouf...I need courage to post here tonight...

Please no bashing

I DID ORDER ONE OF THOSE....ouf...don't ask me why plz, but I did.

I'm not planning to OC the card whatsoever. along with it, I got a 2500K/Asus P8P67 Deluxe waiting to receive it...I'm planning to stick with this setup for a long while....

I wanted "dual card on a stick" with the lower power draw than 2 individual card in mind. The HD6990 being LOUD, I couldn't, for the life of me, grab one of those...
I picked this one, from NCIX:


EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified Limited Edition 3GB PCI-E 3XDVI-I DisplayPort Video Card

NCIX.com - Buy EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified Limited Edition 3GB PCI-E 3XDVI-I DisplayPort Video Card - eVGA - 03G-P3-1598-AR - in Canada

$759...with instant rebate.
The ASUS is at $749...


It's a 03G-P3-1598-AR LOL I feel better now lol...lifetime warranty

-It comes with a full version of 3Dmarks11, which I appreciate
-A T-shirt (whatever, it's FREE)
-A gaming mouse pad that seems to be good, especially when it's free.
-A EVGA Backplate (those are sexy as hell IMHO)
-It's a classified and it's factory OCed to 630 MHz core (well, small OC)

IMHO, it's a much better deal than the ASUS (especially the lifetime warranty+full backplate)
