The two 678 would be better then a single 690 purely because of the amount of memory you are getting. But another thing would be is to get a 7970 Ghz Edition Crossfire with a whopping 6gb memory.

Its also the top of the charts http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2012-vga-gpgpu/19-To... with a HIS IceQ. But if don't wanna try AMD then stick with a dual 680 also try for a custom brand rather then reference.

The 2 4GB 680's, remember the 690 is marketed as a 4GB card, but it only has 2GB per GPU.

2GB isn't enough for that resolution.

For 1080p the gtx 690, less hassle, more space, and generally better temps. But I would go with sli gigabyte gtx 670 windforce.
For anything above 1080p SLI gtx 670 4gb, as the 2 gb will probably be short for eyefinity/surround and even in some cases 1440p. But for these resolutions you really should consider AMD.

For 5760x1080 you will need all the power you can get 2X GTX 680 4GB without a doubt, if you can afford it there is no reason to not!
