You should get either a Titan (not a 690, as it only has 2GB of effective VRAM) or two 7950's or 7970's.
I think you mean $800.
I bought a normal 2GB 670 EVGA card. It burnt out. EVGA was out so they shipped me a EVGA 670 GTX 4GB Superclocked card for a free upgrade. So really, I am only investing 350+400, because the card is on sale today, and I help out my credit score because I will use BillMeLater.
I pretty much only bleed green and don't think I will be bleeding red anytime soon. Two major manufacturers, HIS and SAPPHIRE, both left bad taste in my mouth. Their RMA process was horrific.
If you want to talk about economics, buying a Titan or a 690 wouldn't be economical what so ever because I have a 670 already and in SLI, the 670's beat either one of those cards in single setup. Not to mention each one of those cards cost the same as a 670 SLI setup.
