The Radeon 7990 was just released (or will be soon.) Like the 690, it is a dual GPU card that can handle 4K. Price is $1000, in line with the Titan and the 690. Since it is a new card, there may more bugs with the driver, as compared to the other two cards (though the Titan is kind new as well).

From what I hear, some people have had issues with the dual GPU cards, sine they have to run in SLI or Crossfire. Whether or not you will encounter issues will largely depend on whether or not the applications you use support SLI or Crossfire. The Titan is probably the fastest single GPU card out there.

You gave it away:

Let's Enhance - YouTube

In your case, you're going to need the 4K screen.

I just visited TigerDirect today and that Seiki 4K HDTV is on sale for $1299 or so. But to me it doesn't have the rich color / picture quality of other HDTVs. And it might be like my 8 year old Olevia HDTV - will break down and the company won't exist in 5 years.... I'd wait for a better 4K HDTV that's cheap enough. We're surviving on our 37' Olevia which doesn't work for HDTV or movies through HDMI anymore... a junk TV.

I paid around $1,200 for a 46" 720 TV several years ago. How sick.

I won't be using the Seiki for watching TV. For the price, it's a bargain.
