GTX 590 with Core i7-2600K benchmarks at Ultra Quality quality settings

It is worth noting that the GTX 590 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 1536 MB RAM, the GTX 590 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. It is important to know that GTX 590 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between GTX 590 and Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like GTX 590 requires careful thought.
