What's better amongst these?

1. GTX 690
2. GTX 680
3. 2 x GTX 670s
4. GTX 590

  3. The 590 is a bad option - don't even consider it. It's about as fast as a 680 but with WAY more problems like microstutter.

    Both the 690 and a pair of 670s are close to twice as fast as a single GTX 680.

    The 670s are just a tiny bit slower than the 690.
  4. The 690 just doesn't enter the fray as it's two down clocked single GPU's on a single PCB. Cheaper to get the single cards
