I want to build a super computer and I want to know which would be better for both gaming and 3d design. Two GTX 690's or Two power color AX7990's

Both are overkill for anything but the highest resolution, multi monitor setups. The 690's will run quieter, cooler, and draw less power, but the 7990's are brute force stronger/faster by a decent margin.

Thanks for that, that will defiently help, but I will be running anywhere from 5 to 7 monitors, getting up to 5780x1080p so I will need high resolution and multi monitor

Also I know that single processor units like the GTX 680 can be quad SLI'd but because there is two processors in both of those cards, that are essentially SLI'd together, can I have four graphics cards or can I only have two?

I'm not familiar with anything more than Quad-SLI on a single rig.

Meaning you could have 2x690 cards, or 2x7990's, or 4x680s. Quad-SLI is counting processors, not cards.

Why not wait till the GTX Titan comes out this month? It's rumored to be 15% faster than a 690 and $100-$200 cheaper.

Because I still don't know the exact specs. And also because it's only rumored.
