I upgraded my 2.1 to a 5770 which is the only thing I can put in there to run FCPX. But that doesn't mean I'm bummed out by the built-in GPU's in the new Mac Pro. I don't think we'll be cutting anything beyond 4K for decades so to buy a machine that can drive 3 4K monitors seems pretty adequate for some time.

I this new machine is really unprecedented - I mean we're talking extremely powerful graphics that are utilizing PCIe 3.0 - there's nothing on the market to even test against it. I suppose you could build a custom PC with dual K6000's in it - that should give you an idea of what this new beast should play like.
