The 690 will also take two slots but I think that you won't have an issue unless the pci-e 3.0 slots are close together. Usually there is a space in between the full length slots to accomodate the two slot cards. You may only end up covering a x1 slot.

690. This time around, nvidia should have a much improved dual GPU card on their hands, unlike the 590 which had many problems.

Well... the 690 isn't available yet, so the honest answer is we can't compare the two cards right now. Hopefully it's better than the 590 was in its day. I was unimpressed by both the 6990 and the 590.

The 680 is a beast of a card, though... if you can get them in stock, just grab one. You can always SLI them later :)
