The 7990 is the better card. Both will work great but the 7990 is going to be a little better. The card itself under load will use up to 500 watts. Should have at least a 750 watt power supply for it.

7990 isn't a good choice right now, neither is the 780, arguably. Give it two weeks, buy the 290X, faster than the 7990 and only uses 1 GPU.

Performance wise the 7990 is better than the 780. However, the 7990 is loud and is way too hot to work properly (you may need liquid cooling to make a 7990 work properly). Also the 7990 is two 7970 video cards fused into 1. This means that you have to deal with crossfire issues like microstutter. 7990 requires a 750W power supply. GTX 780 requires a 600W power supply.

I recommend the GTX780 if you're thinking of buying.

I would wait for the 290X. A titan killer for $600 c'mon? don't know if its more powerful than 2 7970's but its damn up there. AMD's new drivers are excellent with CF systems. I would know. \/

If you are going to post help in forums, at least use facts and not speculation.
