HD 7990 still isn't reviewed with Catalyst 13.8 by Tom's which is supposed to fix most of the issues with the card.
Those issues like microsluttering, black screens, heat issues, etc resulted in card getting down from $1000 to $700.

GTX 690 is equal to it but does not result in such gaming issues so I would suggest getting it over 7990. 690 scales both 680s very well and does not encounter any issues at all.

Neither ... twin 770s are $200 cheaper and faster.

This is the best solution here so far, but I might be a bastard and suggest a trio of 760's which would be $250 cheaper and still faster (assuming you have a motherboard, psu, and enough cooling to support them)

And enough money to handle the electricity costs of three GTX 760s? :)

If he was considering the 7990, I don't think electrical costs are much of an issue. This comment was hilarious (and true), and mine was mostly a joke because a 3-way SLI would probably run into synchronization issues as well. But yeah, I'd say SLI of 770's would be the best realistic option.

+1 GTX 770 X 2 provided he will be gaming on either 2560 x 1440 or 120 Hz / 144 Hz monitor.
So first option is not true since he clarified it in his first post.

Second one might be true.

A GTX 770 can max out all games on 1080p @ 60 Hz while giving smooth 60+ FPS all the time (Except Crysis 3 which no card combo can max out).
I don't think there is need of two 770s for that resolution and refresh rate.

gtx690 if you must get a dual gpu card, but if you have 2 x pcie 8x or 16x slots, then just get 2 x gtx 770's, faster and cheaper.

2X GTX 770's http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CZ58WUI/ref=as_li_q... is definitely a nice alternative if you have the power and motherboard to support it.


....and a good enough monitor to make full use of it .. :) 


At 1080p you could still push them if you tried Crysis 3 on max settings with AA jacked up all the way. But otherwise you would want to go 3-way eyefinity or whatever nvidia calls it to make full use of them. I'm pretty sure even a 2560 res monitor would be easy with cards like those.

A GTX 760 is enough to max out almost all games on 1080p.
OP is not using multi monitor setup and he is also not using 1440p monitor.

Considering that, he should either drop 1 770 or buy a better monitor. Preferably 144 Hz 1080p screen as no matter how high FPS he gets and Fraps shows, his screen would not display more than 60 FPS effectively killing the reason to buy two 770s.

Well, even GTX Titan Quad SLI can not max out Crysis 3 so lets leave that game aside.

not to mention C3 on max settings looks barely any different to high settings. especially if you play multiplayer and your not stopping to look around at the scenery.
