$899 single vs $999 dual. The smart buyer will buy the single gpu every time.
It's all speculation, since we don't have any numbers. In my opinion it's more likely that the card's performance is 85% of a GTX 690 as stated in previous reports.
If a GTX 790 beats a Titan in terms of price/performance, that's what I'd get if I could only afford 1 card. The Titan is a no-brainer if you plan to run multiple cards though.
