Would 2xAMD 6990 fit in an antec 900? I would rather avoid a bigger case if possible for space. Just having the one AMD 6990 for now and add one later.

It will fit.....but what are you expecting out of that 2nd 6990 ?

Guru3D uses the following games in their test suite, COD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Total fps (summing fps in each game @ 1920 x 1200) for the various options in parenthesis (single card / SL or CF) are tabulated below along with their cost in dollars per frame single card - CF or SLI:

$155.00 460-768 MB (314/592) $0.49 - $0.52
$155.00 6850 (371/634) $0.42 - $0.49
$190.00 6870 (434/701) $0.44 - $0.54
$250.00 6950 (479/751) $0.52 - $0.67
$285.00 6950 Frozr OC (484/759) $0.59 - $0.75
$240.00 560 Ti (455/792) $0.53 - $0.61
$335.00 6970 (526/825) $0.64 - $0.81
$230.00 560 Ti - 900 Mhz (495/862) $0.46 - $0.53
$335.00 570 (524/873) $0.64 - $0.77
$500.00 580 (616/953) $0.81 - $1.05
$725.00 6990 (762/903) $0.95 - $1.61
$700.00 590 (881/982) $0.79 - $1.43

Twin 6990's or twin 590's for that matter, as you can see above really don't do very much for ya.

Two 6970's get ya 825 fps for $670. Spending another $780 gets you an extra 79 fps. Twin 580s beat the twin 6990's by 50 fps and save ya $450

thanks for that i didnt realise that two 6990s get beaten by two 580s. Surprising since 6990 on its own is better than a 580 on its own right? I wasnt planning on adding the other 6990 for 2-3 years so i figured the price would be significantly lower by then.

You also need to be sure the rest of your system will not bottle kneck such a huge graphical machine, so whats your system specs, by the way i reckon your better off with a GTX 590, as its both cooler and quieter than the 6990, and as far as performance is concerned its almost on a par with ATIs 6990.
