The 590 is an x2 card - it is SLI.
And 3 monitors off one card isn't an ASUS exclusive. AMD/ATI can take the credit for that with the 5xxx series. All manufacturers can do 3 monitors off one 590.
Newegg had a lot of cons but most of it was just BSing. What's your guys opinion on a 3GB card? Is it worth getting?
Usable VRAM is only 1.5GB - not 3GB. It's 1.5GB per card that is mirrored. The 3GB angle is mostly marketing.
Most of it's potential is wasted on resolutions below 1920x1200.
For tri-screen gaming (surround) the lack of vram can also be a little limiting.
Worth it? Depends on what you plan to use it for.
