Deepsouth1987: Better buy a R9 290(x) or a GTX 780 (ti) if you really want to upgrade
EDIT: A realistic prediction on the 8xx series will be the end of the year, like August or September, not a few months.

I have a 5760x 1080 surround system what are you basing your opinions on?
this is a abstract from the above link
There isn’t a lot of difference between the cards at 1920×1080 or at 2560×1600. We only start to see minimal differences at 5760×1080, and even so, there is rarely a frame or two difference. If we start to add even more AA, in most cases, the frame rates will drop to unplayable on both cards.
Benchmarks based on single GTX 770
My findings are the same even with a 2 way SLI system simply even if you use 3.5Gb of Vram most likely you will be in the 5-10FPS if you like to play with a constant 60+ FPS you will end up with "High settings" which will normally equate to 1.8-1.9Gb of Vram.
I can say this as I own and game on a 5760x1080 surround system with 770 SLI and I monitor while I game and never have any micro stutter caused by running out of Vram.
LOL my keyboard looked clean until I took a photo
I would say 4GB CARDS ARE WORTH IT IF YOU DON'T MIND GAMING @ 25-35FPS
