Best Gpu accelerated cards for Resolve and Cubic

Reposting from another thread.

I have a Mac Pro (2012 tower) with cubix attached with currently 2 Quadro 4000's. My concern is only with coloring and transcoding in DaVinci resolve.

My current choice of purchase is the GTX Titan Super clocked (EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN SuperClocked 6GB GDDR5). I understand the limitations of the Mac OS with 2 usable gpus and PCIe 2.0. I want the best options available before my purchase currently given the latest release of the Titan Blacks, Titan Z, etc.

It's my understanding the Titan Black may add slight performance but adds firmware not beneficial to Mac Users. And the titan z is nice but not for the money since I'm still PCIe 2. I'm also trying not to justify buying a new Mac Pro since my system runs fine as is so the 3k Titan z doesn't seem worth it.

Anyone know of super clocked titan blacks or other suggestions for the cubix on Mac platform? I'm not a fan of Amd from what I've seen performance wise compared to Nvidia.

I'm running two GTX 780 6GB GPUs in Cubix and for the cost of the 780s I've been very pleased with the performance. Check my system specs below . . .

Perry, has your 780 been EFI updated for the Mac? Just wondering if in your configuration you loose the boot screen.

No, the 780s are not flashed for Mac.
They live in the Cubix.
The Quadro 4000 is used for GUI and is a Mac version, hence the boot screen.
GPUs sitting in your Cubix can be for PC or Mac.
