Is this the best graphics card? or is their something more better and expansive?

ASUS GTX690-4GD5 GeForce GTX 690 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Besides B&H they sell cards that go over $10k and higher since they have Quadro cards.

  1. It's a good card but why not get a newer Nvidia model like the GTX 780 Ti which is cheaper and has very similar performance?
  2. If you're talking gaming, the GTX 690 and HD 7990 are typically found at the top of benchmarks.

    I have a 780 ti and I'm very happy with it.
  3. If it is performance you want go Nvidia and price is AMD.
  4. The 780ti is currently the fastest single gpu card you can get

    If you want dual, then the 7990 should be faster than the 690

    I own an ASUS GTX 690, great card But.......... No real practical way to upgrade.
    - You can't add a GTX 680 as 3rd GPU (NVidia drivers block this...)
    - besides, scaling on the 3rd GPU is low, so, you won't add much any how..
    - You could add a second GTX 690, but scaling to a 4th GPU is almost zero (if games even support it...)

    I have a second system running AMD R9 280X in Crossfire (basically a 2 card version of 7990). It IS faster than the GTX690. In that case you can add a 3rd GPU (7970 or R9 280X as AMD drivers do not block this...)

    IF your system can ONLY support one card, 7990 or GTX690 would be my choice.... (you can't expand any how)

    IF your system can support 2 GPUs I would get GTX780 Ti (as your budget supports it) then, get a second card in future when you need (ah, want) it....
