A GTX 690 already has dual GPUs. A 780ti doesn't. 690 has more cores. It is actually 2gb per GPU.

Man, I own this card since it was released, I know very well his specs.
But the difference between GTX 690 and a GTX 780 Ti OC model seems to be minimum. And GTX 780 Ti has only 1 GPU and 3 GB VRAM...

The only thing is that GTX 690 has higher value.

This if the GTX 780 Ti is at stock speeds... The GTX 780 Ti Windforce X3 is factory overclocked

But he wants more ram on the gpu.

3 GB on the 780Ti vs 2 GB on the 690

It would be better to sell it and get two GTX 780 TIs.

Isn't it 2gb per GPU AddRAM? But I guess I should not argue with you because of your name "AddRAM."

Yes it would, but i don't want to waste money in 2 GTX 780 Ti.
I have this opportunity, to change my GTX 690 with a GTX 780 Ti Windforce. Should I? Would i notice a great performance boost?

If not, I'll try to sell my GTX 690 to buy 2x R9 290 or R9 290X (and spending some money...)

Right it`s 2 GB per gpu. But you don`t add them together, just as I don`t benefit from the other 2 GB on my second 770.
