So I was wondering, has anyone had the chance to run FFXIV with a 590 GTX yet? And if so, how is the performance with it, in both normal 2D and in 3D? I've been thinking about getting this card with a new PC I'm building sometime in May, along with a 3D monitor, and I wasn't sure if the performance on this card for FFXIV is significantly better than that of a 580 GTX. Last I heard FFXIV doesn't really like SLI, and since the 590 GTX card is essentially two 570 cards in one, I wasn't sure if the performance might be lower than that of a 580 GTX card.

XIV does fine with SLI and more than likely Crossfire as well.

For the money, on the reviews I've read any way, you're better off with 2x 570 or 2x 580 where the 590 is really shining is in SLI but at the OMGWTF current price it's not something I would personally do. Or at least wait until the non-refrence cards start rolling out. Just my opinion.
