My question is, which of this 2 GPUs are better for having in a workstation PC, keeping in mind that the system will be used for gaming also ( for example AC4 )

Does your work need double precision? Ifso titam will be the obvious choice

No, I will be using for multimedia purposes, like 3D modelling (Maya, Mudbox), maybe level design ( UDK ), and 2D ( After Effects, NukeX, Photoshop etc ) and rendering.

You would be better off with a firepro for Maya.

I am using the PC for gaming also, so a Firepro is out of the question for now.

You can game on Firepros also, and the performance in Maya is way beyond desktop cards, but close in games, although they are more expensive.

A W7000 performs similar to a 7950 in games, but hugely better in professional apps, but obviously that's where the higher cost comes from.

Thank you for the insight ... problem is a Firepro W7000 is £600-650 and I might get the titan ( evga SC with 2 years + warranty ) for under 600 ( £550 ) .... I already got an evga gtx 690 with 2 years warranty for £530 and I was thinking if the Titan outperforms the 690 when it comes to doing multimedia tasks ( modelling, rendering, VFX ), I might just sell the 690 for the same price or a bit more and grab the Titan

If gaming is the priority then yes the 690 or titan would take preference :)
