The best option is to wait ultil end of the year, AMD is planning to release Volcanic Islands 20nm GPU and top of the line single card GPU will be faster than Titan/GTX690/7990 and considerably less power consumption. Steamroller should achieve Sandy Bridge single core performance and have a massive multi threading performance, you may be skeptical even thought since Bulldozer was a rushed and a flop and Piledriver was just tweaking rather than overhauling we can see that there are so much things that can be improved and tweaked.
I will wait for the end of the year and buy Steamroller and Volcanic Islands 9970
