Could also possibly be the 680 4GBs. This fella has 2 of them, from Palit.

I am not sure, I am leaning toward the AMD 7850 right now. I would have to see benchmarks. I only have a 260 GTX, currently.

The tables have sure turned. I can't see how AMD can make a 7990 that outperforms a 690 when they need 6GB of RAM on the thing. Maybe they will break the power envelope and make a return to the X2 days by keeping clocks at the same as the single GPU part, with the overclocking headroom the 7970 has it's possible I guess. The 690 will still likely be the better performer. Not that I'm interested in either, dual GPU cards aren't my thing, especially at the probable prices these two will fetch!

A lot of people would say no to that. Even though they run at higher frames per second, they are prone to micro-stuttering.

Muppet's correct. Dual GPU cards are susceptible to the same problems SLI/Crossfire setups are. That's actually how the machine sees them.
