There is no single GPU in existence that will max a PCI-E 2.0 x16. Well I haven't see tests done with a titan but is highly doubt full that even it needs more bandwidth than a PCI-E 2.0 x16 can provide. So there is really no need to worry about the PCI-E port.

proof.gif See for your self all the 2.0 vs 3.0 results for a GTX 680 are within the margin of error http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/07/18/pci_express_20_vs_30_gpu_gaming_performance_review/2#.USgqpTA6CIw

HD 7970 with good coolers are Sapphire HD 7970 with dual x cooler, Gigabyte HD 7970 with windforce3x cooler. these also have good price. gigabyte has locked voltage. sapphire has unlocked voltage. but even at stock voltage 1.1 - 1.15 ghz should be easy.

Sapphire HD 7970(1 ghz)

http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=AT-H7970CB
http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-DL-DVI-I-SL-DVI-D-PCI-Express-11197-03-40G/dp/B009B6Y01Y/
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202008

superbiiz has the best price of USD 400 with $10 OFF your order over $100 w/code: MELTDOWN, ends 02/25. USD 380 after mail in rebate.

Gigabyte HD 7970 (1 ghz)

http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=67547&vpn=GV%2DR797OC%2D3GD&manufacture=Gigabyte&promoid=1302

if you are willing to spend a bit more go for the HIS HD 7970 iceq x2 ghz . good cooler. unlocked voltage. dual 8 pin power connectors. more power phases than reference HD 7970. allows better stability and lower temps with voltage overclocking. but check if your case can fit this card. its 31.1 cm long.

with dual monitor you cannot play fps games because the crosshair will be blocked by the bezels. so i assume you will be playing on single monitor. the HD 7970 Ghz is faster than GTX 680 on average. it costs lesser and has an amazing game bundle. my vote is for the HIS HD 7970 iceq x2 ghz if you can fit it in your case. otherwise the sapphire hd 7970 oc.

if you like nvidia exclusive features like physx and want lower power draw go with gtx 680 . if you want gtx 680 my pick is the gtx 680 lightning.

ASUS GTX 680 Direct CU II

super quiet.

If money is not an issue go with Titan...

Otherwise a non reference 7970 board will do well.
