A quadro can't really game, but a GTX can both game and edit.
So you need a GTX card.

The 690 will be a little better en most games (games that are good optimized for dual gpu's)
I would still personally go for the Titan, because i prefer having 1 strong GPU over 2 less strong GPU's.
the reason is heat noise, and optimization dependency in games.

You should check out this article. it talks about the Titan VS the 690. (and SLI, Tri and quad SLI)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN SLI & Tri-SLI Review | techPowerUp

also the titan has an interesting way of overclocking Via the new GPU boost 2.0
