On the other hand, you can grab the Titan for a signle 1920x1200/1080 and forget about it.
I'd say it's the other way around: For 1200/1080P get the 690, which otherwise would be memory limited (bandwidth and amount wise) at 1440/1600P (2GB/256bit effective per GPU). Today's games are just around that limit and it will only go up.
